Done quite a bit of trout fishing this long weekend, went trolling in a local river Saturday Afternoon. I have never had much success trolling previously, but managed to land a 3lb rainbow which was in poor condition and a energetic 1.5lb searun.
Had no plans for today but found myself checking out the whitebaiters near the mouth, soon had my little spinners out but got nothing. Moved further upstream where I got the fly gear out and landed two browns. One about 2lbs the other a quarter that. Had a few more show interest.
Change gear and rivers again, spotted a little trout feeding in the middle of a massive patch of weed, threw my Rapala at him a few times but the lack of water meant I could not get a good presentation. Back to car and return with my 6wt, drifted a dry then a nymph and hooked him, but between the weed and a tip wrap he managed to break free. Further upstream, saw plenty but hooked none.24/10/2011 at 6:59 am #18973

wicked video kev and great fish 10 out of 10 well done25/10/2011 at 9:32 pm #18997
Another magnificent video Kev, that’ll be the Avon full of anglers for the next few weeks!25/10/2011 at 10:40 pm #18998
@fergie..that is the whole idea mate, get people talking about the Avon and the potential it has if looked after. Unfortunately, the stream has degraded rapidly this last 20yrs but with some tlc and the will, it could be rejuvenated. Normally I would never dream of targeting trout in there, but thought it would be something a little different to make a vid or two26/10/2011 at 3:12 am #19000
A mate used to go and watch a trout during his lunch break a few years back close to where you got those fish and he reconned it was 8-10lb.The tea kiosk in gardens still has the odd large fish feeding under the ducks.I can remember catching rainbows a bit lower down when just a boy.The acclimatisation society used to release them.And into the Gardens ponds.Used to be shoals of them.26/10/2011 at 11:07 am #19010
Fair enough Kev. If i wasn’t on the other side of the world at the moment i’d probably be down there right now! Keep the videos coming27/10/2011 at 6:37 am #19022lalandiParticipant
I used to enjoy Kerrs reach at night with a woolly Bugger. Or dusk with a 7g gold toby. Hooked a good sized prostitute once.
