Hey crew,

Went out for a quickie :D . Was on the water for 2 hours. Caught and released an 80cm Barra on 8lb fire line and 20lb leader. Used the trusty 2500 saros. 2-5kg gary Howard envy. Stoked.

Cheers

Andrew

Didn't take all that long really. I was surprised. He wasted a lot of energy jumping 4 times.

Cheers andrew

The freshwater ones are a bit lazy when it comes to fighting but landing one on 8lb is still pretty imressive considering they've got a whole lot of weight to throw around when they get airborne.

Was it a freshie? Looks like it judging it by the dark pectoral fin.

Monduran escapee. Has been in the river since the flood. Has had to work a little harder for a feed I think. Plus we had max temps of 23 doesn't lend itself to energetic fish.

Top fish Andrew, on what sounds like very light gear to me, though I know zilch about fresh water fishing.

Congrats! :D
