I have been fishing for as long as I can remember and my passion for this sport is still as strong today as it was way back then, when I was a young boy.

I grew up in the rural township of Deloraine, with the Meander River flowing through its heart. Many hours were spent along the river banks with a tin of worms and infinite patience. Sometimes I would be rewarded for it, many times I wouldn’t, and upon reflection there were far too many times when I arrived home with an empty creel and nothing to show for my efforts.

That being said, and ‘once again upon reflection’, with every trip I ventured out on, I think I learned a little more, soon my luck began to change ‘dramatically’ for the better. I had learned the “basics of fishing”.

Huntsman Lake 13-02-2010

Hi all, Just got back from and impromptu trip to the Huntsman with my family a couple of mates and their families.
What a fantastic looking water this is, they definitely got this one right when they established it.
We all caught fish although most were returned to fight another day with only three kept as smokers.
All the fish are in fantastic condition (although on the smallish side) but because they are "little plumpers" as my daughters call them, they give a good account of themselves whilst on the end of a line.
All fish caught trolling.
Only out there for a couple of hours and as an added bonus we had the entire lake to ourselves,we then followed it up with an onsite BBQ, a couple of beers, a bit of stirring and then home.
Not a bad evening , I reckon.
cheers, Todd
