Trout - a beginner's guide

Andrew Richardson
I doubt that I'm alone in thinking the new trout season has come around rather quickly again this year. It hardly seems like twelve months ago I was messing about, throwing lures to the wide blue yonder at Four Springs Lake on opening day 2005.

Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

I am developing a new venture Rubicon Web and Technology Training ( ). The focus is two part, to develop websites for individuals and small business and to train people to effectively use technology in their everyday lives.

Arthurs Lake 7/1/2012

Janet, my son Jacob and myself headed up to Arthurs Lake this morning and met up with Presidents Jim and Virginia Mckenna for breakfast. As usual we had the egg n bacon "pre - fish" cook up, along with a cup of coffee before heading out to the Cowpaddock around 9.30ish.
Saw one solitary dun on the water for the whole day and only two fish rise.

We were joined by around 8 or 9 boats only on the water, and it was a struggle from start to finish.
The only thing landed in our boat was Jim's hat that blew off, (see picture) and a small one that was caught on Janet's third cast of the day,.... and promptly released.
Janet had another , ( jump and spit the hooks at her) of around a pound and a half in size and Jim lost four without any being landed.....(not happy Jan!... was our Jim.).
That was about it really, only saw one other caught by another boat.
Back at the ramp we found that another boat managed two for the day and President Dave Egans boat landed one.
Only saw one dun for the day,...Arthurs is indeed a mystery at the moment it seems.
Oh well, there's always next time, can't win em all,... we all enjoyed the day regardless.
