That was a beauty at the end of the video. What was the biggest you’ve ever caught?02/11/2011 at 5:57 am #19072
A 30lb rainbow mate from the canals… canal fish aside, a 14lber from harts creek 2 seasons ago that took a small nymph during the middle of the day. I’m not lying when I say I had to swim across the stream twice to finally land it..an unbelievable battle that lasted more than an hour lol02/11/2011 at 5:53 pm #19076
What do those canal fish taste like? any different to a trout thats been eating normal food?03/11/2011 at 1:38 am #19085
They taste like bought salmon mate, really good smoked but not overly keen on them baked04/11/2011 at 11:14 pm #19123
kev how long do you get from the yozuri hybrid line ? Does it ast longer than mono?05/11/2011 at 2:13 am #19125
I reckon so baitman, I experimented with a few different lines for up river salmon angling and the yo-zuri was by far the most resistant to bruising etc, but that’s just my opinion and others may differ.10/11/2011 at 3:15 am #1919210/11/2011 at 3:21 am #1919310/11/2011 at 3:27 am #19194
Finally got myself a wearable cam it’s a ATC9K by oregan scientific water proof to 20m 1080p full HD. took it for it’s first outing Tuesday arvo to visit a large brown I had seen picking off emergers on Sunday, I tied up some cdc emergers sz16 and went for a look, after scanning the river for 20mins with no luck I grabbed my spinning rod put on a mepps black fury sz3 and went look where he’d been ( I knew he would be under the bank or tree roots). Quite happy with the cam still working on the best way to compress the video to make it user friendly not fussed on the mic (being water proof it sounds a bit funny) imo.

Damn, thats a nice fish and from the middle of the city. Shame the river is in declining health.
Think I might have to look into getting a wearable camera…
