South Esk River Report 21/4/2014

Arrived at the South Esk with George Papp around 11am and fished till 3pm. I used soft plastics, while George tried the dry fly. We managed twelve between us and i got onto a couple of beauties around the 3lb mark, which were kept for a feed. The rest were released. Saw a few moving on top to caddis and spinners. Caught mine on Berkley Black & Gold T.Tails,and George got his on a hopper pattern. All fish were in top nick and fought hard, but this will be our last trip for the season.

Cheers Phil Zanetto
 

South Esk River 28/11/2012

I had a couple of hours off today so I decided to hook on the tinny and explore the South Esk River in my little 12 foot tinny. I managed 7 in very short time, 3 taken on a klinkhammer dry and the rest on the orange bead - head nymph.

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.

Tangle with a Tiger on the Macquarie

Some wise words written below fellow Presidents, luckily it has a happy ending. Thanks President Mick for the timely reminder as the warmer weather approaches.
President Todd.

G’day all,
I haven’t had many chances to get a lot of fishing in this year, but on Friday (after looking out the window all day at the glorious weather) I jumped in the car after work, packed in my fly rod and went for a look on the Macquarie near Cressy.
