• Rainforest Jewel

    The long trip down the warm coastal strip with its acres of swaying sugar cane fields,
    & large wide mud brown waterways were behind me now.
    Eucalyptus scented the cool mountain air.
    Moist morning mist soon dispersed leaving a cloudless, blue sky day.

    Promised myself earlier in the season I would return to this little jem with a 2wt in hand & I did.

    All browns....a bakers dozen came & went...I fished on, enjoying the surrounds & willing mouths.

    My grumbling belly reminded I had skipped breakfast, so I sat down on a moss covered rock, mid stream,
    & ate a belated breakfast.......content.
    A few more pools & runs beckoned....as they always do....then I slowly climbed up through the old stands of rainforest, back out to the car park. A new favourite added to the list.

    After lunch, a quick session on another stream with a much easier access, just 100m from the dirt road.
    Seemingly rainbow only water....slower session, but fruitfull all the same.

    All fished out...until next time

      Looks fantastic, are you in Tassie? Looks like a stream I fished on holiday 3 years ago on the west coast. Nice couple of hours I recall but no sign of a fish.

      Looks very similar to Tassie........only its northern New South Wales.
