Back with a Vengeance .... and an 8wt.

I'm back from my week long hiatus. Going that long without catching a fish is no good for the psychological state of a human being. That said, this week I plan to throw myself at whatever water I come across.

I hear the lakes are still fishing well and are a good choice if your local rivers are coloured up. Target the spawning areas and liberation points, they will go well after any rain we get. Later in the week when the weather clears up it will definitely be worth checking out those streams for the chance of a stonker late season fish.

Do not, I repeat DO NOT, ever in a million years let the weather stop you from going fishing. Especially this time of year. Some of the best fishing you will have is in terrible weather or immediately before the bad weather hits. Dropping barometers an all of that stuff fishermen like to use as an excuse to go fishing in appalling conditions should come into play here. The fish are there, go catch them, regardless of the climate.

Also, here is a video for your pleasure, motivation, torture, whatever. Whatever it is, this is an absolutely brilliant clip. And a horse fish!

  1. Too right Cameron! I'm looking to get an #8 weight myself atm.

    BTW, dunno f I'm doing something wrong, but the "Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom)"
    link at bottom of your blogroll does't seem to be working.

    I've clicked it on diff days, but all I get is a new tab with screen full of (HTML?) rubbish, and I can't subscribe to follow your blog. ideas?

  2. Hey Nick, ignore the thing down the bottom. Just some HTML code which can be useful for me at some obscure times. Have a look on the right now. I have added a couple of easy options for following (Google Plus and Email). Cheers, Cameron.
