High Country Browns – Video

Once again We decided to go for another trip! Matt has been fishing pretty much everyday day since the last time we saw each other, I haven’t had a chance to escape this busy period at work for three long weeks. The weather looked promising for an over night trip to camp riverside and clear the mind!

 

After a couple of hours in a truck we arrived to a strong gale, we were forced to take shelter in a deep gorge. After getting battered and bruised we decided to face the elements, we were rewarded with several decent Browns willing to rise.

 

Day 2 saw the wind die and the sun come out for what was to be an epic day of rising Browns in gin clear water. In the 28 degree heat we both landed several healthy fish averaging 5-6lb all on dry/nymph droppers.

 

Whatever I do Wherever I go! Friends for life!

For a section of river we had never fished before we were pleasantly surprised, the long hike in hot weather was well rewarded. Another special water chartered and one we will surely come back to visit by the end of the season, but for now it`s onto the next adventure!

 

 

Most definitely one of the best days on a river so far!
