Trout tips - from tackle shops

Presented from Issue 105, August 2013

We did a bit of a runaround Tasmania’s tackle stores to see what their tips for the first month or so of the tackle season were. We asked what the top three places to fish were, plus lures, flies, baits and a few other things.
Here is a rundown on their answers Whenever, and wherever you fish - anywhere, or for any fish in the world - ask the locals and especially ask at the local tackle store. They know what was caught today, yesterday and on what.

Four Springs 6/8/2013

I decided to have a day off work with Bailey and go fishing.
The mad Hungarian George Papp also came along,...he didn't want to work either .
So we left home around 9.30 am,got on the water at 10.30 am,dropped George off on the western shore,as he wanted to fly fish that shore line and Bailey and I drifted around the southern bay.

Within 30 minutes we had five in the boat,one being a rainbow,talk about fast action,lost a couple as well,fished for a coulple more hours and we managed another five,Bailey caught his bag limit using Dale's Yep Red Nut & I got my bag limit on the good old black & gold t,tails,best being around 4lb.
Fish seemed to come on the chew more when the sun was shining,when the wind and cloud came over things seemed to go quiet.
George caught a couple from the shore and he said it was hard going,he will have to get into some soft plastic and hardbody fishing he reckons,anyway we had a great session on the lake,we be back again real soon.
