The weather is quite windy . around 3.30pm hooked up 1 bream , after no any bite until 8pm hooked up 1 accident past by hairtail 174cm . So surprise for me , because I used 6lb berkley trilene main line and light rod . Anyway , have Fun for my trip .

That's a cracking hairtail, especially for this time of year. It would have put up an awesome fight on your gear. Well done! :)

Cheers scratchie!!!

Big hairtail man! Biggest I've seen. Is it just the light in your photo or is that bream quite brown in color?

Nice catch and well done, fellow raiders don't be fooled

Thinking you won't catch hairtail , thru the warmer months we work the hawksbury every day and my best catches of hairtail have been over the Xmas break good luck and right lines

You are very lucky to be working at the river everyday. You must have time to wet a line very often? Are the Hairtails in the usual bays in summer?
