Anyone into the whole uncooked-fish sushi thing should take a look in the mouth of the next trevally they catch. There's a better-than-even chance you'll see the near-ubiquitous trevally mouth parasite. If you don't believe me, google 'trevally mouth parasite'. There's a reason cooking was invented ...
Now to calculate the involvement of Dr Abbott.Cheers
Just like eels in The Tin Drum. Throw up time.
Many years ago I bought a fly from Turvilles. It was the size, shape and colour of a small mouse. I tried it at Eucumbene (Frying Pan) no luck. But then one evening on a deep pool in the Kiewa something hit it. I had only a light tippet about 2kgs and it was gone almost straight away. Never saw a fly like it since and never had a fish hit that hard in a river since.
It's great fun on the NE rivers. One trick I found reasonably successful is to cast a mouse pattern onto the rocks of a quiet pool then pull him in and give him a few quick tugs. It's gotta be night and you need a longish leader, but it seems to annoy the bigger fish.There's also a movie about mousing from NZ:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4pOOMpFW_8Quite good.
"Little flies" Professor, may suit your innate fondness for finesse. I once encountered a very large trout, rising for blue wrens, which were hopping about on some floating drift. I think you should up the anti and carry a larger fly-box.
It's a pity that trout aren't amphibious creatures. I'd love to have a few around at my place to thin out the bandicoot population.
