Atlantic salmon the hard way

The first Atlantic salmon eggs used to begin Tasmania's Atlantic salmon aquaculture industry were introduced into Tasmania in 1984.

Tooms Lake 3/8/2012

Friday afternoon went with daughter Kiri-Lee to Tooms Lake to meet up with Mick Barrett and his wife Shirley. The weather was cool and light occasional showers. Launched boat after breakfast Saturday and Mick caught first rainbow trolling back to campsite. Mick, Kiri-Lee and I then fished till lunchtime with me boating two rainbows. The afternoon was a little less productive with each of us hooking up but failing to land one until Mick hooked a nice brown, this being the only one landed for the session.

weather was overcast mostly with light wind. Sunday morning weather was less favourable, we fished for no catches, the afternoon saw Mick land two nice browns. Overall weekend was good with weather being ok most of the time and fish caught for the pan. What more could one ask for.
 
Tight lines and cheers all, David Bye
