i promised ryan i would take him to my secret stanley river spot, so he can have a crack at "real yella" fishin.just need some rain up there.

a couples of things have changed up the brissy river..a heap more water..i mean lots more! the fullest i have seen since i have been fishing there. the vegetation on the banks were extremly dry and the catfish were very black and look very healthy compared to previous trips.

ryans catty had a decent sized bony bream down its throat too :P

Ah well. A fish is a fish! Thats where I caught my first fish on a HB with James W and never looked back :) Even a lot more "quality" fish have been caught those cat fish can still give you a good run for your money on light gear!

James W: How did you find the Blue Mountain?

the lemax blue mountain went well! didnt get to give it heaps as i only hooked up the once!

but it casted light and heavy lures a great distance..nice feeling thru the rod while working the lures too which i like...and could control my lures actions pretty good with it.. i like it :)

oh well I didn't catch a fish, but it was a lovely day, with good company and some exercise in the great outdoors...better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick I reckon :)

congrats to Ryan on the first HB capture.

Very cool to see the half swollowed bony hanging out his gob...

could have done without the close encounter with the large deadly snake though! that'll get your adrenaline pumping....

will have to do it again soon (the fishing, not the snakes!)
