Trout fishing today has progressed away from the rich old man with the tweed hat and bamboo flyrod to a sport anyone can enjoy. Many fishers today enjoy chasing trout on lures and very light spin gear as an alternative to the traditional methods of fly fishing.

One of the finest trout fishing destinations in Australia is the Snowy Mountains in the state of New South Wales. There is no doubt that there are few fishermen that take their fishing to whole other level. They literally spend more time fishing than anything else, they are so passionate about the sport, their whole lives revolve around fishing. One man that knows and loves this place more than most is Daiwa Pro Josh Carpenter.

The following are a selection of images captured during the filming of the Snowy Mountains Trout Fishing episode featuring Josh Carpenter. All images were captured by Shottobits.
