Trevallyn Tailrace - Monster Trout

Dan Clifton

As the open season on trout waters arrives there will many keen anglers heading to the highlands to catch the first of the hungry, post spawn, browns.
With the winter well underway and some heavy frosts often covering the ground, I find myself keeping my trout fishing close to home. It is great to get home to a warm house, shower, warm meal and I really like my own bed.

Little Lake 25/02/2012

Bailey and I headed off to Little Lake today, as Bail’s wanted to try out his new “Wildfish” 6 weight fly rod, ... so away we went. We arrived there around 11.30am and fished till 4pm, we had a ball catching 27 brownies on dry’s, beetle patterns and some on emergers.

Bailey caught 15 of them, what a top effort, as he hasn't been fly fishing for very long, fish were going off!
We released all but two fish, (promised dear old mum a couple) and had a real bonus today as I caught two fish at the same time, one taking the point fly and another taking the dropper.
He landed both too, that doesn't happen very often.
There were a few others fishing alongside us, three boats and three anglers wading.
Certainly a day Bailey won't forget in a hurry.
