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.

Tyenna River 23/9/2012

Another day at the Tyenna had me land this 10.5lb solid buck brown..
Just a short stroll from the main Derwent River itself, a quiet little spot had me hooked straight away as I stood looking through the thick scrub at two very nice fish from what I could make out two very nice size females est 5-8lb.

Tyenna River

A recent trip to the Tyenna River had me land this 9 1/2 pound brown not quite tipping the double figures..though loosing half a pound or more having nothing at all in it's stomach and being a tad slabby.

My best trout to date though hooked and lost some nice trout ( as the story always goes "THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY" ) but it took two goes to land this one as it did get away the first time but not far. The river was up and flowing pretty hard and i found a nice little eddy in which was resonably still and held a bit of structure a few small logs and things a good spot for a trout to be sitting I thought, i was right.

Margate Report

I have a report concerning my fishing trip today. We were fishing at Margate, North-West Bay.
I quickly hooked up this magnificent 5 pound (~2.5kg) Brown Trout.
It was caught with a green and black celta with a home made blue feather on the hooks.
I hope for further tight lines !

North West Bay River 31st August 2011

Just thought I'd send you a story from the North West Bay River as my guess is you haven't had one before. A few of us fish the river on a regular basis as it is only minutes from where we live and work.
It is unusual not to catch a fish but the size is generally less than 1lb. In saying that we have landed quite a few fish round the 2 - 3lb mark ( mostly searunners ) and the odd Atlantic Salmon.
