Trout tips - from tackle shops

Presented from Issue 105, August 2013

We did a bit of a runaround Tasmania’s tackle stores to see what their tips for the first month or so of the tackle season were. We asked what the top three places to fish were, plus lures, flies, baits and a few other things.
Here is a rundown on their answers Whenever, and wherever you fish - anywhere, or for any fish in the world - ask the locals and especially ask at the local tackle store. They know what was caught today, yesterday and on what.

Lake Leake  Report 3/11/2013

We went to Lake Leake early yesterday morning after a few wind lane feeders and found a few rising but they were often only ”oncers". We  managed a nice rainbow, broke on the strike on another (which looked like a very good fish) and also caught a smallish rainbow. The fish very hard to catch as there is an abundance of stick caddis in the water and they are gorged full of them.

My flies were amongst a myriad of thousands. There were heaps of Cormorants here, the fish in the photo had a giant score mark on its side where they had obviously had a crack at it.
Quite a few duns also spotted but only saw two get taken by fish.
Promising signs though.
Regards,
Todd
