It's Grasshopper Time

This summer, the riverbanks have come alive with grasshoppers, making it an ideal time to use a hopper or a fly imitation. Fishing rivers and creeks with a grasshopper is a very easy and effective way of catching a few fish and an ideal introduction for anyone new to trout fishing. Fly fishing is also productive at this time, with trout responding well to a grasshopper fly that is laid out with a splat. For that reason, trout are very forgiving to anyone who is still in the process of learning to cast a fly.

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing -

trailer-cWoods Lake​ Trailer Debacle

Fellow Anglers Scott ​and I would personally like to thank the persons who helped us with our broken spring on our boat trailer...(trailer is 5 years old) Norm for his knowledge on how to get us home and his rope knots...thats obviously why not too many fish escape him. Bert for his knowledge and the whole roll of duck tape.....the repairer is going to love you :) Gerry for his wire, Neil for his nice piece of fence post.


Special thanks to Norm and Chris, who waited at Arthurs Lake to make sure we made it off Wood Lake Road at 10k per hour and missing every divet on the road.

It was a long trip home but we made it, and the "fix it" job didn’t move at all. We got home about 5.30pm, average speed on the bitumen 40-50​kph. With some annoyed Symmons Plains travelers in a hurry to get home (even though we had our hazard lights on).

Regards & Thanks​,
Leigh & Scott
