    Mission one: So Monday morning I headed up to Khancoban having tasted some limited midge fishing success last Winter.

    Absolute cracking blue bird day, great for fishing but not so much for catching. No fish spotted, not so much as a fin, ripple or boil.

    Undeterred I fished a tungsten blood worm deep (2.0m) with a pollies promise off a dropper 30cm sub surface.

    Cast, wait, draw, wait, rinse and repeat.

    Water was a clear as it usually is and at a good level but….. ah well that’s winter fishing. Will try again on an overcast day.IMG_2961

    Mission 2:

    Same location but a tad later in the day. The 40-60km high wind warning may have been a bit of an exaggeration on BOM’s part as the water was still enough to see a tadpole fart 50m away.

    Bit more cloud caver and yep a couple of fish sighted. The regulation 3 good casts (on your best day after a good nights sleep, a hearty breakfast and with an assisting tail breeze) from shore.

    Well proof of life at least.IMG_2969

    With rising water levels a back up plan might be useful.
