Fishing on the Wild Side

Mike Fry doesn’t only live on the Wild Side of Tasmania, but also goes fishing in probably the wildest boat ever to troll for trout—certainly in Tasmania.

kgwIf you catch and keep KGW’s we want your filleted frames. Preferably leave the guts in so we can sex each fish. Frames can be placed in a plastic bag and frozen with details of approximate area of capture, the date of capture and your contact details on a label left inside the bag. Once frozen drop them off at where this poster is or contact me and I will organise the details to collect them. Once obtained the frames will be used to determine their size, sex and maturity level, and remove the otoliths to age each individual.
