catching trout

They aren't barramundi, but there's something great about the speckled fish ...

Back in another life in Vic and SA, we used to fish for brown trout using little Celta spinners.......

Damn that water was cold!!!
I used to have a handle on life.......then it broke.

Barra on marabou jigs might have to be the new challenge this year I think

Mate of mine put me onto Crickhoppers , he trolls windlanes at dawn & dusk with crickhoppers & usually gets few.

As for Stuckeys theyre a brilliant lure but hard to get .....unless you know him.
They're so good we used to go to Glenbawn in the Hunter valley & would have guys chasing us to buy our Stucks second hand ....if we'd sell em.

Heres a nice Bron form Eucumbene, on a small pink stuckey .................

pity bout the rough lookin head,....not the one on the fish either :fu: :fu: :fu:
