Well with daylight saving and Easter out of the way it was back to work for me today. What a great day is was to be back at the office with no wind, clear skies and crisp air. Couldn't have been a better day to go back at all.. This morning I had to travel to one of my other offices some 45 kms from Sheffield. Still it was a beautiful morning for a drive in the country side and it helps to get the brain into gear for the work ahead of me. My office today was the Meander River.. No better place to start off my first day back after a brief break.

Factory freezer trawler, the Geelong Star, arrived in Australia on 1 April and within three days it had been approved to go fishing, despite persistent opposition from conservationists, recreational fishers, tourism organisations and people across the country. This weekend hundreds of people are joining events in a National Day of Action across the country to call on Prime Minister Abbott to stop the Geelong Star and other super trawlers from threatening our unique marine life and valuable fisheries.
"Senator Colbeck has welcomed the Geelong Star in to trawl Australian fisheries, when the fact of the matter is that there is still widespread opposition to these super trawlers and the devastation they could cause", says Rebecca Hubbard of Environment Tasmania and Coordinator of the Stop the Trawler Alliance.

Trout number 400 reached today. 6/4/2015
Needing another six more trout to reach the 400 for the 2014/15 season I thought a trip back to Merseylea would be worth a shot. I knew the Mersey River still had a good flow of water coming down and this area would give me the best chance of reaching the mark. I was in the river by 4.30pm and didn't realise how low the sun was, with daylight saving out of the way it was much lower than I expected. Still I knew I would still have at least two hours to get the trout I required. The first run of fast water didn't show any signs of a fish, but in the next run I managed five hook ups for three browns caught and released. This was just the start I wanted and I had only fished some twenty meters of this fast water. It went quiet for the next ten meters before I had another brown take the little Mepps black fury, it was soon in the net. With only two more required I was feeling pretty confident of reaching my target before I made it to the end of this fast run in which I still had some thirty meters left to fish. It didn't happen, the rest of the run didn't give a yelp much to my disgust.
