Fish 7 Ward 0

Edit: Picture added.

Interesting is the best way to describe it. Had a great fish with Malcolm on Monday but the story goes simply, 7 lost fish and non landed! The story was good in that of the seven, three were probably Spanish mackerel, one was a tiger shark, and three were probably Nannygai! All the fish were hooked upon a basic white fly and my 12wt rod so you would think power was not a problem, but all lost to the fish (bite offs or shredded) and the environment. I will let Malcolm finish the story but he did well! Just to make sure that I could still land fish I went for a quite paddle on my ski. Happily 7 Trevelly and 2 sea pike decided to play. In the hour from 7.30 am to 8.30am 9 fish were landed on my new 8wt. It is nice when a plan comes together. So the story goes if you look hard enough and work hard enough there are fish about. It would seem that time on the water is by far the best way to catch fish, up sizing your gear helps but be prepared to get blown away!
