Juvenile Ox Eye Herring

Juvenile Ox Eye Herring

Down here in Australia at present a closed trout season and closed bass season has the casting arm twitching for some action. The local waterways are still recovering from the worst devastating floods in history, leaving coffee coloured rivers and lakes. I have recently found myself finding solitude catching juvenile ox eye herring off the local weir using size 12 kebari, a Daiwa 53M with size 4.5 level line. Good fun - record 4 in a session.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

"There is a time to go long. There is a time to go short. And there is a time to go fishing." - Jesse Livermore


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
