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.

Lady Lake 5/11/2011

Took a stroll up Higgs track Saturday to have a look about and of course had to wet a line, the walk up the mountain is just under 4 km and a bit testing but the scenery is breathtaking, it took Ally and I 1 hour 45 minutes to get up and 40 minutes to get back down.

As you can see in the photo's there is a great little hut there that would make a great base camp for fishing the Chudleigh Lakes region, will being doing that later for sure.
Lady Lake is maybe 100 metres long and wide and has a creek in and out, the water is crystal clear so needs to be approached very carefully, I only fished it for half an hour, because I spent too much time exploring (I was like a kid in a candy store) and failed to turn a fish but did see 3 rise, would love to have been there on evening, maybe next time will spend the night. And wander a bit further the next day.

Worth a look guys, Tight Lines
