I can't make it to Darwin, but I am launching Friday heading to the Walker river (Groote Eylandt area). I will be on the water Saturday, does that count as a protest?????


Insanity is a good place to hide from reality!

It is not how long the fish is but how long you have fished & how long you've wished.......

If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

a model of committment Doug! You might wanna check and see if the fish population are doing okay......for research purposes....oh and its probably a good idea to check their eating qualities too.....

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.
