Welcome to The Alpine Angler Online Tackle Store:
Here is the overview of the hatchery works over the last few weeks;
All our eggs for the 17-18 stocking season have been laid down and the trap has been taken out as of the 30th August.
Although the spawning run started late due toa lack of water and rain events, the Browns ran really well, with 2247 individuals recorded before the trap was taken out, and more still in the system near the hatchery. 400000 eggs have been laid down at Gaden , with another 600000 set aside for Dutton Hatchery.
We have about 300,000 wild RT eggs laid down for the Jindabyne and Eucumbene allocation, and 800,000 eggs from our 2+ and 3+ broodstock, which have all been mixed with wild males. The trapped Rainbow count for the year was 366 individuals, with many more seen after the trap was taken out.
About 25000 rainbow trout eggs were collected from Hughes and Tolbar creeks in the Eucumbene system on the 31st August. Once hatched, these fish will act as a genetic variation for the Jindabyne system, and future broodstock.
The findings from the coded wire tagging program were as follows;
Hughes Ck- total R/T collected 229 including 6 tagged 2 false detection's due to fish hooks
Tolbar Ck total R/T collected 102 including 1 tagged
Hatchery collected 366 Rainbow trout from the Thredbo River, with a total of 26 fish tagged and 4 false detection's due to fish hooks etc. These tagged fish were from 3 year classes.
All unwanted 2+ 3+ rainbow trout broodstock (230 individuals) have been released into Lake Jindabyne with an elastomer implant (pink) inserted near the left eye(please see attached photo).
Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon have just started to hatch, with the brown hatchlings running a bit late due to the late trapping season.

NEW PRODUCT IN SOON
THE VERY BEST FLATS LINE ON THE MARKET— perfect for bones, perms and poons with low stretch performance
RIO’s new flagship saltwater fly line has been designed for anglers hitting tropical flats in search of bonefish, permit and tarpon. The line is built on RIO’s new DirectCore, a proprietary low-memory, low-stretch monofilament core that retains its stiffness in tropical heat, yet lies straight on the water without curl or retraction. The core, which has 30% less stretch than regular tropical saltwater fly lines, ensures solid strip sets and shortened fight times.
The new core isn’t the only technology advancement in this fly line. RIO’s SureFire technology, which has been used in their freshwater fly lines in the past, is added to the Flats Pro line. This triple color, distance-marking design takes the guesswork out of accuracy and distance control, allowing anglers to make higher percentage shots to cruising targets.
The DirectCore Flats Pro line is available in floating models and a clear tip “StealthTip” option that features a full-float head with six feet of clear intermediate at the tip. This nearly invisible front section allows for shorter leaders and easier, more accurate casts, while the increased density provides greater wind penetration.
Each line is built with a front taper that loads easily at close range, and with a mid-length head and extended back taper that provides stability for fast, accurate, long-distance casts.
This phenomenal line won “Best New Fly Line for 2018” at the European trade show “EFTTEX”, and “Best New Saltwater Fly Line for 2018” at the US trade show “IFTD".
