    Drop Bear,just watched an ozzie travel show here in Pommieland "Cruising with Jane McDonald". She was in Brizzie and it has won us over - I think. If we come up your way will message you Would be good to meet up. How far away are you from the city ? John

    Its the dodgy Sydney one I was referring to Drop Bear My ozzie fisho mate was a great sport,do not think he possessed a pair of shoes either Ollie was fearless,he targetted sharks off the shore a lot. Once we set up at dusk on Manly(Sydney) beach and Ollie paddled out a large bait on his surfboard whilst I let off line on his shark rod. He overturned at one stage but managed to dive down,get his bait and remount his surfboard. A total nutter. Will add a few images from that session for you http:// http:// http:// No shark takers that evening but I managed a few bream and my very first tailor http:// John

    Most enjoyable read,well done. Have fished around Manly myself a few times. Love it around there. Using yellowtails for livebait had salmon.bonito and kingfish off the shore. Also fished at Little Manly Point Park a few times. On livebait my ozzie mate Ollie hooked into a decent size bronzie. Managed this shot of it just before it bit him off. We head off to oz of 4 weeks today. We will be staying at our daughters in Warriewood for 3 months. Would be good to hook up with some of you guys John

    Think my mate Nimrod (Frank) is trying to arrange another trip for us to Lake St Clair and a sea fishing trip as well. We did have a trip down to Bermagui a while back. Had the pleasure of trying that good bush tucker "damper" cooked during our Lake St Clair trip We fly out 4 weeks tomorrow,bring it on. John

    Thought the "pommie barsteward" would be appreciated. Went on a 3 day camping/drinking/fishing trip up to Lake St Clair with some ozzie mates a few trips back. What a howl it was and I even managed to catch a bass between drinking bouts. Must have been called a "pommie barsteward" at least once every 5 minutes over the trip. What a great bunch of fishos. Even managed to catch a "drop bear" on camera a few times. http:// http:// http:// As you might guess,photography is one of my hobbies. I am "Geordiepix" Thanks for the kind offer Drop Bear but no plan to head Brizzy way on the trip. John

    I did make the Manly paper back in 2012 with this unusual capture from Sydney harbour, I have included this in my species list http:// John

    We leave the UK 06 Feb for oz and will be staying there until 01 May. We will be staying at our daughters in Warriewood near Mona Vale. It will be our 7th ozzie trip since I took early retirement just over 10 Years ago. I love fishing in oz and have caught 46 species in my previous trips. Looking forward to adding to my species list but am finding it harder each trip. If anyone in the Warriewood area wants to take a wrinkley old pommie barsteward out fishing I would appreciate it. Cannot beat local knowledge. John
