So I have been hearing mixed views on the death of Steve Irwin the infamous crocodile hunter. For some, it was an accident waiting to happen for a reckless adrenalin junkie who was just in it for the cash and for others it was a tragic accident that robbed the world of a dedicated Australian [...]
I passed my driving test today. I am now mobile- a full force attack of the Kelvin shall be happening, not just my usual haunts but some of the other tributaries as well.
Not done any fishing as it has been too damn hot and my driving lessons seem to be getting in the way of things. However, other anglers have been on the water and are seeing roughly the same amount of fish as I am- namely doodly squat. Alex sent me this rather nice picture of [...]
Will be in a few days (possibly a week), thanks to all those that entered it has been fun !

Greetings, people who have just read The Herald. I have not actually read the article regarding the Kelvin yet but just in case I came across like a trumpet I thought I would post this first. Anyway,some background, I have been fly fishing on the Kelvin for a number of years now and call it [...]
