    Took a little tiki-tour out to our favourite lake yesterday, thought we'd try for some more rainbows for the freezer, as well as some blueberries which are abundant this time of year. Unfortunately we couldn't get onto any mushrooms, but we didn't go home empty-handed.

    The glassy conditions made for slow fishing. Windy conditions helped early on and at the end of the session, fish more willing to bite with the lake roughed up a bit.

    The lure of the day (again) was a Toby, one of two purchased on the local Trademe for two bucks a pop including shipping. Funny, but they deliver more often than not over here.

    In other news, moose hunting season started last week, with a hunter shot and killed on opening day.

    And.... saw some pics online of a (very lost) swordfish caought on a fly rod in Norway. About two metres long, maybe forty, fifty kilos? Anybody else heard anything else about this....?

    Record number of salmon in Swedish rivers this year. Funny, I ain't seen one!!

    Well done Boulderman
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It is a beautiful country Gibo. The culture is quite liberal, the sheila's are spunky and the cars are built like tanks but be warned you can't find a Waikato anywhere.

    Had a bit of a double date up in the forest on Sunday, scrounging around for the last of the bright 'kantarell' mushrooms, as well as the 'trattkantarell' (funnel chantarell) which are coming into season.

    They ain't pretty but they go great in a soup.

    Also plenty of moose sign about, and what I'm pretty sure was roe deer sign, hard to tell if it was fresh, just wet, or both. I'm over posting pics of animal crap, you fella's have probably seen enough of that....

    Trying to organise a trip to the south to get after some roe, long trip, so feel free to wire some funds!! Fingers crossed we'll get down there....

    Moose and Roe deer. Not to be found in New Zealand BM. We wish they were.

    Took a trip to the coast yesterday with a character I met recently. He has a cabin down there and mentioned that a nearby trout hatchery had released a bunch of trout into the sea. The bay was boiling upon arrival and we had some luck. Dragged up six smallish trout over the day, and lost a bunch more. Lure of the day was a cheap wobbler in a few different variations of yellow, stripey and spotty patterns.

    Then along came another of my mate's comrades with the fly rod and cleaned up big time. A great day out, down jacket on all day though, freezing.

    On the drive home I spotted a few roe deer out on a large field where they commonly graze about. Snuck in from a side road and took some pics from just inside the treeline. They eventually got wise and bounded off with a couple of barks. I need a new camera, or to learn how to use the one I have....
