Borders open and long time friends return

Mik from NSW was keen to get back to Tassie after 18 years away! As you can see tough day weather wise, but still a good number of hook ups.

Some good sized fish — with clever intent — hard run straight into the weed bed!

Despite some excellent stalking techniques, none to hand, with three break-offs and weight on a number of others.
Light leaders for trout (after 14lb‘rope’ bass skull dragging efforts) meant the delicate touch was missing.
“ I will be back” says Mik … and it won’t be another 18 years!
