With everything in my life being so busy lately, I managed to get away for a sneaky mid-week overnight fishing trip on Tuesday afternoon, returning last night.
I didn’t catch any fish, but it was wonderful to get away and get my lines wet, hanging with some mates. They booked a cabin for their Easter family holiday, so I grabbed an unpowered site at the same park and pitched my swag for the night. We fished all day at our various favourite spots, saw plenty of fish, but they just weren’t having anything we put before them.
Some young guys were catching small browns by drifting worms in the Goulburn, but for the most part the fishermen around us were striking out as well. Luckily for my mates they got onto some fish the day after I left, which is nice (for them! 🤣).
Despite the lack of a fresh catch to eat for dinner, I had the most wonderfully relaxing day. I packed a pipe and sat by the Pondage when my phone buzzed to tell me it was 13:00, and time for a daily routine at Starlight where the Melbourne office gets together to have a go at The Age Quiz. I logged in over Microsoft Teams to the group chat, got a few groans that I was out fishing, and that was worth the trip just for the giggles!
