We went for our weekly trip to Four Springs and caught all our fish before 10.30. I caught 2 on the fly, one just under 5 pounds and the other 4 pound.One was caught on a green bead headed woolly bugger and the other on a red and black woolly bugger. We tried a nymph under a dun for a short while but never had a look in.
We had our weekly run to Four Springs today. Tough day weren't there long and Vic caught 2 fish in 2 casts. That was his day done. Oh yeah both on pumpkinseed. I tried a few different flies and then caught a really nice one on a green bead headed wooly bugger. We then flogged around for a long time and I finally caught another on the dropper fly (blackand red wooly bugger). Turned out alright in the end and as we were leaving the wind dropped right out.
Regards Vic and Ros

He is a quick report from the Tamar Marine guys ( Danny & Deano )
I hit the water with a mate Grant in his revamped boat and had a nice brown in no time on a plastic in the shallows. Dean, his son Matt and mate Josh came over and Dean had a nice rainbow and a brown.
I picked up another brown not far from last one and then we had a look around. Deano's boat didn't see anymore till his last cast of the day BANG on!..Great way to finish off a good day.
I managed to pick up my best near the death knock too, a cracker brown (such good nick) over 5 lb .
I went for a short trip to Four Springs today arrived at 8am on water by 8.30am. There was [lenty of wind and man o man was the water dirty, as I only fly fish knew it wouldn’t be easy. I started in one of my spots and within four casts I am on, only to lose it in the Tussocks.
I kept the same drift and had one more swirl at the fly but wasn’t looking. I then decided to go to the top of the lake for a drift with no success, so came back to where I started and within seven casts I was on and landed a solid brown.
Four Springs was very nice, although tried very hard only ended the day with two ,very nice browns, to the best of my knowledge nobody bettered that number either. We stayed at Legana for the night, sorted out some gear problems the next day and fished F/S the next afternoon for a magnificent brown, (belting down) then returned to Brushy for the rest of the day, boated an Atlantic about 8 lbs and another brown.
