Western Lakes wilderness trout – Tasmania
In between rafting trips on Brumbys Creek, we’ve been out at RiverFly Wilderness Huts over the past fortnight, sight-fishing to black spinner mayfly feeders along the crystal-clear lake edges. Here’s a wild brown trout, caught by David on one of our Pheasant Tail Black Spinners, deep in the Tasmanian World Heritage Area.
These wilderness trips have also proved to be the perfect testing ground for my Patagonia Chest Pack, River Salt Jacket, RockGrip Wading Boots and Rio Gallegos Waders. All have passed where many have failed (including one other brand that trip), among the scoparia and dolerite, with the Patagonia gear once again proving to be the most functional, and toughest wearing fly fishing gear on the market.
