Members of the CFFA and the Bendigo Fly Fishing Club joined forces for an assault on the notoriously difficult body of water, commonly know as Harcourt Reservoir.
The water levels were high and clarity was good, however the cloudy skies soon gave way to a bright sunny day. Great for working on your tan, but not the best for Victorian lake fishing.
Those who arrived early reported seeing moving trout, but by the offical starting time of 9am all signs of trutta were null.
That said, working hard – fish were caught, sledges were made and a great sausage feast was consumed.
All in all, a grand day out.
