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.

Please contact me for further information.

Scamander River Report 17/11/2012

The Longford Fishing Club held a bream fishing competition on the Scamander River today. Johnny Dekkers is a member and invited Jacob and I to tag along. Although we are not members (and therefore not eligible for entry into the competition side of things), we decided we would still go along as a bit of company for John and do our own thing. Mike Stevens also found himself a late minute inclusion.


The game plan was that Jacob would catch 6 fish for tea, Johnny would catch a big one, Mike would guide and I would be cook for the day.
It’s not often that a plan comes together perfectly, but today it did.
Johnny ended up winning the Longford competition, Jacob caught the required fish for tea (that he promised his mom), and I didn’t burn anything.
Jacob actually caught a bigger bream than the one John weighed in but as it was a big breeder fish, he promptly released it to swim for another day. (He is quite smug about that) ha ha.
Many others were also released.
Mike pulled the soft plastic rod out towards the end of the day and landed a couple of nice ones as well.
What a great day.
