    Yip sure did,was in two minds about going this morning,the thought of the rivers being out of action for another week spurred me to get out of bed at 4am..glad I did :D

    Once you get that first one, they seem to come easier.

    It seems to be the way,break through the barrier and you can rack up a few quickly!!

    A real bugger,who knows how many fish have made it to safe ground above the gorge? I remember in 97 going to the hydra waters in early Dec trout fishing and there was 100s of fresh silver salmon in the stream already,they had run straight up the river on the back of some big freshes and been completely missed by anglers..mind you it was a cracker of a season..but you never know!..anyway lets hope this is the last fresh for a couple of weeks.

    Well I guess as a positive the % of salmon caught this season by anglers will be well down,who knows in 3 yrs time we may have a good return..or it could be just wishful thinking on my part!!
