Building Cane Rods

I had a young guy from Melbourne called Jack McCowan visit me last week.  He wanted to shoot some video of me working and interview me at the same time.  I nearly said no, but I had a look at a film he'd done before (called Three Two One - on his website - http://www.adventureproject.org) and he looked like he had a lot of potential.
He's using a Canon 7D DSLR for the video.  He has all the attachments to make the video work.  As you can see - he has done a really good job after spending a few short hours with me:

He has been working as a Ski Instructor and Outdoor Event Coordinator in Vic (Mt Baw Baw), and been traveling overseas too.  He's headed back to Melbourne, looking to do some freelance video and look for other work at the ABC etc.
Best Regards, Nick Taransky

A Work Out for a New Rod

A couple of days ago I went and purchased a new rod for spinning, a 1 to 3 kg starlo stix from Bridges Brothers.

I thought I might give it a whirl so I headed down to the Huon River about a kilometre down from Jubury Park.
