Roll with the punches

So Paul and Andy`s trip was cancelled last year due to floods and this trip did not start well at all. On the first day, Andy fell crook with a 24-hour virus that really knocked him around. My Canoe fell off the back of the trailer (first and last time) and this resulted in us having to chase down a Drover who thought he had scored a free Coleman Canoe. He had it all tied up on his horse truck and was just pulling away. All that said and done once we got into it we started to find our groove. It was tough on the first day with Andy crook and the Bass shut down but with a change of weather the fish switched on and the next 2 days were as good as it gets. With Bass up to the magic 50cm and some surface smashing Eastern Cod by day 2 we were over 20 fish and the boys had already booked the next trip. We lost count but I think the final tally was between 30-40 fish with a healthy mix of Bass vs Cod.
