    THE THINGS YOU SEE WHILE FISHING

    Went out to the mouth of the Waitaki river last night on the south side and what did we see some ID TEN T has tried driving in his 4wd out to the mouth on the north side and was bogged up to the axles in the gravel with an incoming tide.
    Long story short someone went for help 2 4wds came down first one got stuck but pulled out by second
    no help there about 40 minutes later a 2-3 ton digger is seen making it way out along the bar after a bit of pulling out it comes.
    finaly pointing in right direction follows the digger out only to get stuck again in one of the water crossings digger to rescue again
    5 minutes later truck on ferm ground.
    Many Thanks to the person involved made a fishless trip a laugh

    I once saw a golden retriever floating like a cork 20 miles off the coast

    I usually see Deer while Trout fishing in the back blocks.

    Have gotten into the habit of carrying my Baikal across my shoulders while fishing.

    However from recent experiences the buggers know your holding a fishing rod and bugger off real quick when you go for the rifle.

    Oh saw some German backpacker eye candy swimming in the Mohaka recently too, ............. apparently they had forgotten to pack their togs.

    Cheers

    Not a whole lot to tell really. We were in a three day marlin comp and as we wandered the big blue we happened upon a bloated dog bobbing around the ocean. A few other boats saw it to over the weekend, was some funny comments over the radio

    When I was a Rafting guide so many years ago, the German punters were well known for their swimming attire, or lack of.
