Tyenna trout

Thought i would share a few pics of Tyenna trout on fly .
I love to indicator nymph and flicking the dry . I find it hard to decide on most days .
Don't go for the nymph under the dry to often as it is un-adjustable in length for the rivers ever changing depths .
I mainly go for #14-16 size hooks for dry's and weighted #14 and un-weighted #16 for the nymph's .
End up with a few bent #16's but have not lost a fish on one yet .

Here is a nice brown on a buzzer .

Marvellous pics of very healthy fish! Congratulations.
I hope to be down there this Christmas, waving the long wand for my first serious attempt at trout on the fly.

Looking forward to it even more now!

Tony . . . do yourself a favour and hook up with Tyenna Dave for a fish in his local area.

Very nice photos Dave and I'll get on the vice and tie some smaller stuff before I come down in October . . . don't like tying that small stuff on #16's but will have a go. Its been a few years since I tied stuff that small. The bead head nymph flies seem to work well around where I fly fish + hopper patterns always good. Any specific patterns that are in your favourites list?

Thanks guys !
They are definately healthy river fish .And fight accordingly .
Definately look me up Tony if you would like a crack at the rivers around Maydena .There is an article in Flylife #56 winter edition called "Beyond Maydena" .
It is fly heaven but still occasionaly people leave fishless due to lack of location knowledge .Also the rivers double the catch rate of the lake fishing !Can't go past the rivers and streams .Love em !
If you do not wish to tie #16 MXB i have more than enough for your 2 week tour .
I will also post in the fly tieing section and show you some of my flies that work well here on the Tyenna and surrounding rivers .
The most deadly patterns are from an x guide in Tas/Scotland and he usually lands big numbers of fish with his patterns .
Glad you guys enjoyed the pics .

Most Guides in Tas are poor Mitch .
Cost around 15-20k a year to get started and there are many hoops to jump through .
It is a labour of love !
Hard to make money in tackle aswell .Big stores kill the little ones .They have a large range of items usually at a cheaper price .
No money in flies either !
You might earn $5 an hour after materials .Takes along time to be consistant and fast where you will make a few dollars .
Sorry to be a party pooper !
