Fishing on the Wild Side

Fishing on the Wild Side

Mike Fry doesn’t only live on the Wild Side of Tasmania, but also goes fishing in probably the wildest boat ever to troll for trout—certainly in Tasmania. 
When your mate says ‘What are you doing tomorrow, want to come up the Gordon for the night?’ it would be pretty hard to say anything else except “you bet” and start checking out your tackle box and packing your overnight bag. But if your mate was Troy Grining and he wanted to give his new 52ft, high speed cruiser a run across Macquarie Harbour, test the new onboard dory with a chance of landing a nice Gordon River Brown you would have to feel privileged. I didn’t say anything about getting on my hands and knees and kissing his feet…just having a lend of ya’ but I did feel very appreciative.

Great Lake Horror Report!

I took my mainland mate (Kevin Wilkinson) to the Great Lake yesterday, joined by Bailey and Phil Zanetto. We were hopeful of some good "Shark fishing", ..(polarioding trout in windlanes). Phil caught one, we never saw a fish. The BBQ was good though.

 We were determined not to be disgruntled with that effort, Kevin and I left home at 4.30am this morning, bound for Lake Leake. I thought "surely" we will find some moving fish at this lake for Kevin to cast at, not to be, as we never saw a fish rise. In desperation, out came the soft plastics which produced two big perch and a small rainbow.
 
What a horror show of a weekend in regards to lack of success.
 
Regards,
Todd
