Second cast a winner

Andrew is from Victoria and has been with Red Tag several times. With a slightly overcast morning, there was an excellent flow in the river and, I should have said this to start with … Andrew caught his first brown on his second cast and it took 10 seconds from the moment we first got in the river to start the action.

Searching through the various spots the trout came to life when the gentle breeze died down and the sun came out. With the temperature rising the trout began taking emergers. One big pool alone netted four browns without Andrew raising a sweat.

Blue damsels were starting to move about the edges and the odd one or two fell prey to leaping trout.

A couple of the browns that were spotted and stalked were in the vicinity of a good 2lb and swam around us at one point but they were wary.

All up it was a very good day.
