  13. 13. 68cm 6.75lb Ravenswood 20/08/2007 Clue: Caught in August but look at the Erosion There are two definite winters –but what next? The plus growth after the second Winter seems to be heavily closing but Summer fish should be “Open” at the edges. The erosion shows however that this fish came in a long time before August. The most likely explanation is that this is a very small, 3SW Springer. Again, not all 3SW fish are large ?
