Chengdu fishing - Failed again!

Posted by glen , in Travel 17 October 2010 - - - - - - · 2,371 views

Hey guys,I went fishing in another river today flowing through the city of Chengdu which is in China's Sichuan Province. I saw quite a few fish rising and they looked sort of like catfish. Some were quite good size. I tried drifting earth worms over them but had no luck. And I tried bottom fishing near the rising fish but that did not work either. Oh...

They did end up stocking Lake Karkarook in the school holidays and we had a bit of fun catching rainbows on flies but the numbers get quickly depleted. Doubt there will be many fish left by the end of the week!Cheers, Glen :)

Hi everyone,I went fishing to Lake Karkarook (Moorabin, Victoria) on Sunday but did not have much luck! I saw a few bait fishers catch some rainbow trout. Only a couple of fish rose in the evening. We did not get a touch while fly fishing.I hope the lake gets stocked again soon! I believe it should get more fish this week as the School Holidays ar...


Would you like to have a fishing blog?

Posted by glen , 17 September 2010 - - - - - - · 608 views

Hi everyone,I just added a blogging module to the forum.What this means, is that you can setup your own blog here at squidfish.net.If you are not sure what a blog is, it is basically like an online diary.So for example, it should provide a great platform for a fishing trip diary. That is what I plan to use it for!This function is a bit new to me so I...
