Bronte with Cameron again

Drove up Saturday night to meet Cameron.  The plan was to meet him at the lake and camp together, but I arrived at 9:30 and couldnt find him, so I slept in the car.

Fished the next morning for a light touch (with a big boil as I pricked the fish).  But the water was dirty, and I had no more touches.  The wind came up.

We drove to penstock to check it out, then drove home.

A typical fishing trip with Cameron!

Fell in

Title says it all.  This was supposed to be a whole day fishing with my new breathable waders.  The weather was perfect, though the fish didnt cooperate that well.  But heading below the bridge, I fell in.  The previous week had been crap, I was still in a bad mood, so I went home.

So close!!!!!

Lost it.  It ran downstream, and somehow a loop of line on the reel got tangled and it busted off.  Well over 10lb.  Well over.

Post Christmas -- river too high

It was raining and raining.   The evening before the river height was OK, but at the top of the range.  Unfortunately, when I got there the river had risen dramatically.  I did some pruning.

Weir was running high!
