Meanwhile, trout condition is just amazing. Evidently, the fish have benefitted from the now months-long trifecta of high lake levels, good water quality, and an abundance of food. Even many of the browns now resemble spotted footballs. (Turns out 2020 has been good for something after all!)
The final highlight of the last several weeks has been welcoming back our Melbourne friends, and even a few of our interstate guests. These recent words from Melbourne regular Janet, back for her first trip in 8 months, sum up what makes it all worthwhile for us:
“The sight fishing was amazing and the size and numbers of fish caught also very impressive. I love to fish with a dry fly. Following a challenging year of lockdown and uncertainty, this new freedom allowed me to look at Millbrook with new eyes. I was mesmerised by natures beauty; the surroundings were exquisite.” Thanks Janet!
