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.

Woods Lake Report from Sat 27th November

Fished Woods Lake on Saturday morning. On water about 7:30am with slight northerly so headed to southern end of lake. We up 5 nice fish on soft plastics close to shore but no surface feeders seen. About 10am went over to eastern shore where there were alot of mayflys hatching. Over next 2 hours caught and released so many fish using a highland dun pattern close into the shore. Headed back to boat ramp about midday and while cleaning fish i paused for about 30 seconds and looked along the bank and saw no fewer than 25 rises in a 50m stretch to the north.
Amazing morning!
