Hi there and looks like its been a long break_ I am still fishless, but some of the old timers have been working over time, and a family has resurrected its angling , to catch a couple of near extinct carp from the murray darling river system in Oz.
I went down for a lil chin wag and hopefully fishing, to Jayant and Charu's place in bendigo, vic, in Nov.
Just my luck, i landed up in 4 deg cold front, 80kt winds and baro fell to940 (if i remember). well, we were brave and went down to the designated lake after buying permits.
struggled with the wind, the cold and managed to get the bannerjee's onto knot tying and casting.
A great rustic lunch at a 100 year old inn, back to another lake, more casting, Teaching dhruv how to use a scum frog till we lost it...

So mama San Charu helps out when the guys forget the knots, by throwing in some surgical knots-I have a sneaky feeling she did the knot tying when the guys hit the Murray Darling sustem and hauled out what was euphemistically termed by a local as" the last carp in the river..."

Braso and well done -More power to the Bannerjee fishing elbow in Oz.

More news, ol man river pops out of the cold from snowy Bristol to show these beauties, fly fishing ofcourse...damn licence costs 50 quid a day and double figure wt guaranteed. He wont tell which wooly bugger he used...
gwan henry. I wish i could raid your fridge-the trout I had the last time was delicious.

Thats Our Glenn's (Todd) cousin, and here's what he has to say:

my cousins in Albury have been out trout fishing again and caught this monster Please see pic nos 06, 010 and 011
[Which is what I've uploaded...Axx] which show the big trout which weighed in just short of 14pounds, length=70cms. It was caught on a home tied fly imitating a 'stonefly' on a size 8 hook with a 6lb leader. Three other fish were caught at the Dartmouth settling pond near omeo, nsw. weighing 3 to 4 pounds.
hope u r well

am I well? actually NO , Glenn Ol chap-You oldies seem to be having all the fuN, while all i get in sunny QLD IS yards OF RAIN AND UNENDING CYCLONES
Will some one please turn off this hex...

Axx :twisted:
