I thought you were going fishing

Susan thought I was going fishing.  So I went.  River was at 270, but with high winds.  No luck -- didn't even see a platypus.

Another drowned rat experience

Took Martha out.  The heavens opened.  She caught a snag, that turned out to be a fish.  We bailed, got her a warm coffee at the cafĂ© and came home.

Snuck Out

Got in a morning on the Tyenna.  The river was high -- almost 300.  But I did see two platypus at once, and had one swim under my legs while I was sitting on a log!

(4 fish, all about 1Kg)

Steve Visit - Day 1 - Bronte

Camped at Bronte overnight, and then fished to top end.  Caught 3.  The first was on a caddis, but then Steve started catching them on grasshoppers with a slow retrieve -- I caught 2 using that technique.

Took Fabi and Alisia out in the dingy.  Lots of flathead.  Alisia lost a salmon.  And Fabi had an epic battle with a gurnard.
