Burrinjuck Capers..II








The latest thing in hats for the Spring Carnival: King Parrots.
It can be a marvellous place when it has water. At 39% and little or no rain in sight that won't be for much longer. As can readily be seen, the lake is well stocked with redfin and Murray Cod. Josh's fish was some sixty cm and he wasn't too impressed with dad's "hold it orizontal...hand under the guts so as not to tear its gill latches...that's it..."
Oh for the days of 2-4kg rainbow trout that used to monster lures....
Couple of cases of black, several bottles of red, fish, mum, the kids and the birds...what more could one want?

Lovely pics Bertie!

Glad you all had a great time.

Maybe not now, dear Mike, but one day, when he is much older, Josh will realize what a wonderful and decent thing the old man did that day!

Yes, splendid pics Compadre!

The landscape at the top has the kind of haughty, aloof clouds that make such shots memorable.

I'm relieved to see Josh's and Caitlin's fishes didn't actualy carry them off. Those are surely whoppers for young anglers to grapple with.

And pleased to hear the retreat was enjoyed by all. Yep, what more could one want...
