    Murray River Fishing

    Spent a week or so out on the mighty Murray River. Lots of beer, and lots of bites. We all came home with a decent haul. A few Cod and nine Yellow Belly and six Redfin. The heat nearly killed us, but the beer helped in that regard. A nice barby. Isn't that what Summer is about...

    I'm Not That Good At It!

    But really the whole idea is getting out in the great outdoors and breathing some fresh air. It's a lot of fun when you do find the fish though!

    When I tell people that I like fishing they act surprised because I'm the kind of girl who doesn't like being dirty or crawly, slimey, scaly, smelly things. I don't take my fish off the hook nor do I bait the hook myself. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy the catch! I also don...

    I Grew Up Fishing

    My dad and grandpa took us kids fishing as soon as we were old enough to walk to the creek and hold a pole. Those were the best days of fishing. I like to go fishing every chance I get. Someday I might catch a big one to brag about to the grandkids if I ever have any.

    I love river fishing.

    It's calming to feel the water rush by your legs. Getting to unwind from a long week. Even if you don't catch anything it is worth it's weight in gold.
