Tyenna River 11/12/2012

I had some work to do in Hobart yesterday & Trev came along for support just in case we found a small stream somewhere on the way back.
“It so happened” that we did stumble across the Tyenna River after about an hour driving from Hobart.
We soon found a spot to start the search for our first ever Tyenna trout.
As soon as we started looking, we spotted fish ... Not that easy to catch though, being this close to the road.
I think they might have had every lure and fly in southern Tasmania chucked at them.

We soon realised we would have to walk in a bit and sure enough, “Bang”, Trevs on!
He had a half a dozen small fish in quick succession (only beating me because I was the main photographer, I must add.)
We kept moving up the river and soon spotted the fish we had come to catch; we estimated this trout to be in excess of ten pounds!
He swam around us for a few seconds, but soon disappeared out of the shallow gin clear water into the depths and not to be seen again.
Hopefully he will still be there when we return.
We moved on and caught several more small fish, all caught on the Yep Golden Seducer.
I know I say this every time I visit a new stream, but here goes again.
What a magical river.
We are so spoilt for choice here in Tasmania.
