Bridport Report January 25 2010 

We had a good day on 25th January out of my hometown, Bridport, with a few mates.  Whilst bottom bouncing for the usual flatfish, we had a thumping great school of medium sized salmon erupt all around the boat for a good 3 hours.  The fish looked pretty flighty and with good reason, as one the photos will show, as the local mako and couta population went to town on the them.  Quite a sight to see, not to mention the absolute noise of thousands of salmon thrashing for their lives on the surface.
Other than the salmon, everything else was a bit quiet, plenty of flatties but all quite small.

Woods Lake 16/1/2013

I just arrived home after a couple of enjoyable days at the Pumphouse bay camp ground at Arthurs Lake. We didn’t do a lot of fishing, but as Monday's weather was calm, Virginia and I decided to take the fly rod over the hill to Woods Lake for a couple of hours.
I am glad we did.

I caught my bag limit of five and Virginia caught two, in a hot little session lasting around one and a half hours.
Whilst we were there I saw a fish come up and take a dun next to the boat that would have been every bit of 8 pounds,... I was flabbergasted!.
Certainly was a memorable experience that we hope to repeat soon.
Jim and Virginia.
