Arthur River 14/10/2012

Trev, myself and a few mates headed to Arthur River for a day’s fishing. We left Launceston at 6.45 on Friday night and arrived there about 3  1/2 hours later to a nice unit and “more than ready for bed” after a big day at work. The others had a different plan and were well into the whisky. After a few laughs, 1.30 am soon came around and then it was finally off to bed. Trev and I awoke to the smell of eggs and bacon cooking and after quick feed we were the first to head out onto the water making our way to the mouth of the river. Doug soon had one on a 4 inch softie but he only stayed on for a couple of seconds unfortunately.

Janet, my son Jacob and myself headed up to Arthurs Lake this morning and met up with Presidents Jim and Virginia Mckenna for breakfast. As usual we had the egg n bacon "pre - fish" cook up, along with a cup of coffee before heading out to the Cowpaddock around 9.30ish.
Saw one solitary dun on the water for the whole day and only two fish rise.

Arthurs Lake 2/1/2012

Rob and I decided to head for Arthurs yesterday and fish “gentleman’s hours” - the weather looked perfect for a big dun hatch. We arrived at around 11am and conditions were perfect around Brazendale Island– warm and overcast and a light breeze from the north.
