Shoalhaven River 6/5/2007

Took the boat for a run in the Shoalhaven River yesterday with my daughter Sarah and found some salmon working some white bait near the punt. I caught 3 salmon to 57cm on a 7 wt rod and it took 8-10 minutes to get them to the boat. I caught them all on Chatto's estuary fly as I was initially targeting flathead. I also caught 3 flathead in 15 minutes using the same fly when we changed spots late in the afternoon when the salmon went quite. 

Cheers Leo
