Abstract

Since our last evening meeting several large fish have been taken by a fixed net in the Derwent, immediately below the mouth of the Plenty, which fish differed so materially from the trout caught in the Plenty and those retained in the ponds, as to induce a belief that a veritable grilse had at length been caught. The first of these fish, a female weighing 4 1/2 lbs., was taken on the 26th December last, and is now before you.
