Trout Hatchery

We collected the Brown Trout eggs earlier today from Hooke Springs and spent a while carefully seeding them into the clubs hatchery box, these eggs will hatch when the water warms early in the new year and hopefully provide a little added sport over the next few years, again thanks to Bryan and Robin for their help on a particularly wet and cold morning… We got the eggs in just in time, as now the river is rising rapidly and full of colour!
