Four Springs 11/8/2012

I went out after work for a relaxing hour of angling. It was awesome till I tried to get off the water. A regatta was still in full swing 15 boats and another 15 cars. We got a nice brown of a kilo in the calming conditions. The wind died off and water was glassy.

Four Springs Lake Report 8/8/2012

I decided to take Bailey for a fish out to Four Springs Lake after work today.
Arrived there near 5pm and we were finished by 6pm, talk about fast and furious action!!
We finished this little session with nine trout; I caught two beaut rainbows and a brown right at the ramp.
I didn’t want to go for a walk, (bit lazy in my old age), Bailey went for a wade up to the right of the ramp, to the point, and he bagged six browns, releasing two.

Four Springs Report 21/4/2012

We headed out to Four Springs with my son Jacob this afternoon for a bit of a troll around in the hope that we might pick something up.
No such luck, not even a tap. We ran into President Jamie Morehouse on the water and their boat lost an estimated four pounder at the net.
When we left them, they had nothing to show for their efforts as well, but they were still trying,... so hopefully things picked up.

Four Springs Report 13/4/2012

Jim and I headed out to Four Springs Lake on Friday, arriving there just before lunchtime.
It looked promising with a bit of chop on the water, but there were only a couple of boats on the lake and they said they weren’t catching anything.

Four Springs Report 3/4/2012

As stated in my previous Four Springs Report, I headed back to Foursey's today with the fly rod.
Hopes were high that I would be in for a good day as we had plenty of cloud cover and humidity to spark a hatch.

Four Springs Report 1/4/2012

With today’s weather being as good as it was, I decided to head out to Four Springs for a couple of hours. I arrived at 9.30 am, and to be honest, with it being that late in the morning, I didn’t expect much in the way of any fishing action. Upon arrival, I was soon to realise my first mistake,... I didn’t bring my fly rod.

We fished Four Springs for a couple of hours this afternoon, wind was a pain in the bum, coming in from all directions.
Hardly any Duns on the water, 4 cars in the car park and balls of algae are starting to appear throughout the lake, especially at the southern end.

Four Springs 14/10/2011

President John Dekkers and myself headed out to Four Springs this morning armed with fly rods and (in my case) "limited ability" as usual.!!
We decided against getting up early,... instead choosing gentlemen's hours to attack our fishy friends.
