Vanessa’s triumphant return

First introduced Vanessa to fly fishing some 16 years ago; this was her first two days on the rivers since then.

Wow! First cast after lunch Day 1 and another one to the net … hadn’t even gotten in the water.

Yet more success on day 1… which turned out to be a record day for Vanessa.

Lovely evening light in which to cast a fly … magic Tassie autumn time.

First up Day 2. Likely looking fellow….

Actual size when netted! Feisty one that.

By the end of Day 2, Vanessa was delivering some very good casts in tight situations and getting just rewards.
