Tonight's dinner  Smiley

Caught on my 6th cast with a little spinner at in the creek at Beardy Waters rest area just north of Glen Innes.

Fillets are going to be dusted in flour and lightly fried in butter served with some steamed veggies  Cheesy

Was hoping for a trout but recent rains have muddied the water too much. These things are an introduced pest in trout streams

Hoping for a trout? I reckon you got a better feed with your redfin  Smiley

They are an easy fish to catch and are a delight to reel in.

Easy to see why your drinking posh wine with all your free camping  Smiley Smiley

Aha! Good onya Derek, you rumbled my fav. redfin spot.
Always get a decent one or two there, other good looking spots full of little blighters 6" long.
Anther good spot is where it crosses the Grafton road which is just downstream of the town water supply. You can pick up a legal cod there too.
You dont find trout in that location, the water coming out of the reservoir (a large expanse, but very shallow) is just too warm.
The Furracabad and Wellingrove hold some good browns though, 2lb. being quite common.
Some good free camp spots around GI, I am always extolling the fact we have more per 100km. of road than most other regions.
Liked the look of your dinner Derek, but I never bother skinning them (dont even try to scale em!)
Just nice and browned flesh side down then a minute or so on the skin. We reckon redfin one of the best eating, but overcooked...cardboard would eat better.
