Recent SA Trout Fishing

Post by Station49 » Sun Jul 15, 2012 7:06 pm

I've had a bit of success lately back on the SA trout fishing scene.
Quite a few browns and rainbows have fallen victim to artificial in a few of my old spots and a couple of newly discovered ones ;)

And my best fish of recent times;
Nice brown trout with great colouration, all ready for spawning maybe...

Hope you all enjoy the pics of fish and scenery!

The XRap rod is fantastic for this type of creek & stream fishing, i would highly reccomend it. I have been using it with a stradic 2500 ci4 and a certate 2000 ['04 model].

I just ordered a '10 Certate 1003 from DigiTAKA and plan on running that reel with the CRap rod as a trout fishing specific combo. Looking forward to it! Even thinking of doing something crazy like 3lb mono straight through otherwise i may be limited on capacity, although i see sunline castaway comes in a pe0.4 so that may be the go.

Hi Albert,

The stream with the pics of the falls was quite a hike in & back out. The fish was enough of a reward though that im heading back there tommorow morning to do some more exploring!
