Re: Fly Fishing

That's pretty cool after all that time away. Obviously you have come into a heap of money lately eh? :yahoo: :up: I have a mate that flew outback milk runs for years just to keep his hours up and pay his lessons upgrade bills. He said he was too scared to total it all up! Hey, you can't take it with...

He's Back!

Way back in 2016, a young guy set out to share his experience making a plumbing tube 'boat' and fishing the creeks around the Goldy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_W8tbJqIX8 There has been lots of interesting clips of his exploits and catches since. Then there was Pipe Dream II and also the skiff...

Re: VIetnam Veterans’ Day

Never forgotten Dig. And what I cannot forget is the piss poor treatment you all received when you came home. Great to see you are still on the forum. I hope you have you been able to chuck a lure or bait at some of the stonker bream that are supposed to out and about down there? Keep safe and stay ...

Re: Advice on box trailer for the outback

Well here is the latest I have on the old 6x4 box trailer and kayak transporting. Victoria is the only state that does not require a standard 6x4 that is shorter than 3m and not wider than the towing vehicle to be registered. Lucky us eh? However the critical point that most users forget is that the...

Re: Hobie compass

Have a look at Maverick's review on here or on his other site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO1MlQeU5zU The new Compass is great. New hull shape and lots of tricky bits, but the compass has everything an angler needs. Lighter and a bit more maneuverable on smaller creeks or river stuff. Just need...

Really? Scumbags!

Lubin and his guide head out searching the Ovens for cod. They have done it before, good footage, nice water and interesting to watch. But, this trip was nearly a no goer because some scumbag decided to steal their raft! Really. A fishing raft that a local owns and uses........... It's getting worse...

Oooopppps, nearly

Here is a good clip of some young fishos having a go after that elusive greenback. :thumbsup: I'm always aware of the old Joe Blake when on or near the water. I've had a few close calls over the many years I've been an active outdoors person. I carry a snake bite bandage and a lucky rabbits foot (na...
