Lachlan checks his back cast — after 8 year break in fly fishing workshop!
Spots a feeding trout in this backwater and starts to stalk.
Fish moves away along the backwater, need to follow and keep low profile.
Good movement identifies position … on with the Blue Damsel!
Yes! Hook up … only took 1.25 hours. For practically a novice this was just brilliant!
3.5lbs of wild brown trout in 8 inches of clear back water … no wonder a satisfied grin.
Trout heading home. This is why we love guiding/teaching fly fishers … great result for the client from a combination of patience, pattern and presentation.
