The Derwent round of the TAS Classics saw some of the
leading teams exchanging in some friendly banter and stirring on pre fish day
which got alot of anglers pumped and motivated.
The weather was typical of mid
winter Tassie which saw snow on the foothills of the river and a 2 degree
celcius start! But the day was better than predicted with only mild breezes and
clear blue sky.
Still even with good weather the fishing had shut down somewhat
which left anglers scratching their heads as to where the fish had gone. Team
standings changed and at the end of day two team Shimano go into the last round
at the Scamander River with nearly a 2kg lead!.
No patterns evolved with only
scattered fish being caught nearly the full length of the river. Hard bodies
scored a few fish but plastics fished on light leaders proved the best bet.
