North Esk River 17/8/2012
As soon as school finished, Bailey & I had a look at the Upper Nth.Esk River this afternoon. The river was still running clear despite all the rain, we found the fishing a bit hard. We managed five brownies up to around 2lb, all caught on black n gold t.tails. We dropped a couple as well.
Bailey tried hardbodys but didn’t do any good with them, so he switched to plastics and got one straight away. He also managed to catch a black duck in the paddock on the way back to the car, sure was a sight! Bailey chasing the duck through the paddock, he’s quick!
The duck had an injured wing, due to shooters in the duck season no doubt.
Anyway all fish “and the duck” were released unharmed.
