Nath and I geared up in our respective footy jerseys for a hit out on some local water for a much needed outing. Pretty lucky to have some nice water like this only a short drive from the city.
What a crazy start to 2020. With everything going on, I managed to get out and battle the smoke, rain and whatever else was thrown at me, and was lucky enough to land a few fish – the highlight being landing a salmon on the 6wt on my birthday!
Here is a small handful of the photos taken over this time. I’m hoping it’s only a matter of time until all this chaos/nonsense/whatever you want to call it is over, and we can get back out and enjoy the outdoors properly. Until then, the vise is getting a good workout, and my fly boxes are slowly getting a much needed top up!
I picked up a cheap film camera and thought I’d have a dabble. Just a few shots while trying to work it out. Straight film, no edits.
A hike past one of the legendary Snowy Mountains Huts down to the river, then finishing the weekend fishing Lake Eucumbene topped off a great weekend up the hill. Absolutely love this part of the world.
A few days up the hill with Reid and JQ for NSW trout opening weekend. While few fish were landed it was perfect for a bit of a scouting mission to see the condition of the rivers and to checkout some new access.
A quick trip up for the afternoon to fish some of my favourite water. While only weighing in a 1.5lbs, this chunky rainbow put a nice bend in the rod. I ended up landing 3 around a similar size, all off the top on small midge patterns. A good day out to mark the start of winter and the end of the NSW Trout season for me.
I was really glad I patched the holes in my waders earlier this week.
