Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

My name is Stephen Smith and I have been managing the website since May 2009.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

I am developing a new venture Rubicon Web and Technology Training ( ). The focus is two part, to develop websites for individuals and small business and to train people to effectively use technology in their everyday lives.

Lake St.Clair 22/1/2012

I fished with Bailey, arrived on Saturday around 11.30am to 8pm, fished in the Derwent Basin and around the Frankland beaches area. What a fantastic spot to fish, scenery outstanding and no crowds as we were the only boat on the lake.

We caught 8 brownies from 1lb to 2.5lb, all on dry beetle patterns, lost a few as well.
Bailey caught his first trout on the fly here, he is doing a great job with the fly rod at the moment.
We saw a lot of fish chasing the dragon and damsel fly’s but they are very hard to catch, most of the fish we caught were feeding on gum beetles, we saw a few right in close feeding so I dropped Bailey off on the shore and he caught the best fish of the day, a 2.5lb brownie.
He was absolutely rapt, all fish were in good nick and very strong fighters, nice colour inside as well, weather very hot and sunny.
