Overcast, cool.  No wind at this stage. All rivers are fishable. It looks like some rain is forecast for today and tomorrow ...... but will we get it ?  One would hope so.  This should move some fish into the rivers ..... any volunteers want to work for me ?

The pictures below are from the fishing expedition I did the other week to explore some more of the river. The picture below is the Silly Pool. A nice part of the river to fish.  However there is one drawback .... you have to walk to get there. I look at it this way .... while I am going for a fish I am getting some exercise as well. Normally having to walk somewhere means you get to usually fish a pool by yourself.

(Below) The Shag Pool ... the one on the corner.  A nice deep swirly pool.  For those that want a challenge, this pool will make you think how to extract a fish out of it.
