    Dundee Explain to me what the point of weighing the trout is. To me, "looks big enough for a feed" would be the only measure.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    @223nut

    Last time this happened to me I walked into the Mackintosh hut in the Kaweka ....... 14 hrs and 11kms later I got back at the van completely Buggered and empty handed just after midnight.

    I then sat down next to the van to have a cuppa tea and got whistled at from the pines on the other side of the road from the car park, 30m away

    But that's hunting aye!

    Cheers

    The dinner plate measurement works for me,if it fills a plate keep it. I just weigh all the keepers. Another useless bit of information is the condition factor of trout you need both weight and length.

    Took the younger one out to see if she likes fishing as much as she says. Looks like thats a tick. Ngaruroro is too full to fish so Tutaikuri was it. About as full as Id want it to fish. Picked up a few tiddlers on a Veltec and followed up with a nice 1.9kg jack on a Rainbow Trout Rapala CD5. Good fighter. No photos as kid wrangling was harder this time around.
