    I tried a couple of different beaches at the lake this morning down the southern end.I wont be going back again in a hurry!! And then went to two beaches I have fished before .At the same time there was an ABT Kayak bream comp on .So pickings were slim .The wind while not strong was sticky half way along each beach it would change directions !!!Very hard to cast at times .
    And not every fish I catch is big or a PB
    fish 1 my smallest Bream or fish ever on a fly today
    [​IMG]
    And this fish fell to a popper fly at beach number 3 first two beaches got zilch .The fly is almost longer than the fish!!
    Fish 2 slightly bigger at 16cm well probably double or so in size.It did fight well and was hooked well through the lip
    [​IMG]
    Fish 3 I didnt bother to measure smaller than number 2 but bigger than number 1 .It fell after 9.30am well past good popper fishing time !!

    And that as they say was that I kept wading and casting but by 10am I had had enough .
    Cheers

    At least your fishing Mick, I can't wait to get out and wet a line. Hopefully this week I can get out and wet a line, it's been months for me. I'll have to remember how to cast all over again. :D

    Cheers, Dave.
