It was mid-afternoon, so Exploratory theme
kicked in again and Michael Kony took us to the
Rubicon area to camp for the night. Michael
has been travelling to this area for many years
and knew some fishing spots.
We settled in at the Tin Hut camping area near
the Rubicon hydro-electric power station.
Recently built drop-toilets helped the comfort
levels. Michael described the fishing spots he
knew in the area, so we all looked forward to
landing a fish the next day. The sound of the
Rubicon River nearby was a nice way to head
off to sleep.
Men and campfires!
Sunday 29 th Dec 2019 - Day 2
The night had cooled off, so sleeping was more
comfortable and allowed some decent rest. No
low range stuff today – it’s all about fishing. There was no further luck at the next spot. It
was now mid-afternoon and 44 degrees, so we
decided to call it a day and head home.
Michael took us further up the Royston River
Road to his first spot. Thanks again to all who joined the trip and
made it an easy first trip-leader experience for
Success!!! Michael landed the first trout,
followed by Rob & Curtis landing fish too. We
explored that are a little more. The fish came
off the bite, so Michael took us to his next spot
however the track was closed, so we headed
into Thornton for a bistro lunch.
As it was now getting very hot – 40-odd
degrees, I wasn’t keen on going to my trout
fishing spot because it is very open. Rob
remembered another spot that had some
cover, so off we went – exploratory again.
You’ll probably notice I haven’t mentioned the
actual fishing locations – if you want to know
where they are – join me on my next trip!
