Four Springs

Tried a stick caddis, dragonfly, and wooly bugger.  All to no effect.  I am planning on taking up knitting.

Low Head Pilot Light

High winds made it unpleasant.  Tried berley, but no response.  One foul hooked toadfish.  A group arrived to squid fish, but had no luck either.

Four Springs

38mins from car park to lake.  A bright sunny day.  One 12" fish in the last light on a dragonfly nymph.  There was some movement before that ignored the bugger, so a change of fly was the key.

North Esk

28 mins from car park to first access point.  31 minutes till the 'bridge'.  Fished above the bridge.  Had a platypus swim right past me while standing on the bank.  2 fish -- one 11" and one 14".  Then back to Launceston to pick the kids up from the redline bus.

Brumby's Creek

34 minutes from car park to the creek.  Two good hits right below one of the weirs.

Brushy Lagoon

Brushy lagoon was stocked with 1000 rainbows a week ago.  Left at 4:00.  Took 52 minutes to get there via the highway (i.e., not via Exeter).  Not a touch.  Saw one taken, and heard of another two.
