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.
I was really glad I patched the holes in my waders earlier this week.
Evan and I had this weekend booked in for a good month or so, since we both couldn’t fish opening weekend the plan was to make up for it by fishing the Tumut River as we were attending an event at the Brewery. But with the water flow at 9000ML and rising (my mate fishing Blowering mentioned the water level there dropped 1 meter overnight!), we decided to leave it and fish some smaller streams in the area, perfect for a 2-3wt setup.
A few fish were landed and some new access points and streams were found, so not all was wasted! Fishing these smaller streams meant the fish were extra spooky, so it’s motivation to work on my streamcraft and fly presentation a lot more.
Checkout Evans Chinese 7ft 3wt glass rod. Doing the job to this rising brown. For the price, I’m definitely going to pick one up…
