Fishing on the streams North east of Melbourne is hotting up. Spring has sprung, the fish are active and are feeding willingly. They aren’t really looking up yet, but it wont be long.
Last time I fished the section of river we fished on Sunday I landed 20 fish from 20 strikes at one point in the afternoon. On Sunday, for me at least, it was the polar opposite of that. I missed most strikes, I broke my tippet striking on a number of occasions. I dropped many more fish than I landed. Thankfully there were enough fish around that over the day I landed enough to keep me happy and entertained. Nick absolutely killed it. He was “on”, catching fish after fish for hours on end. Thats fishing.
In general, there were lots of fish, all feisty and willing. The weather was wonderful (despite the forecast 50kmph winds), light breezes and sun all day. I cant think of too many better ways to spend a Sunday.
It was a fun day.
