    Shooting fish in a barrel

    Baldbobs gonna give me shit for this.

    Took the kids out for a salmon..................at a salmon farm!

    List of excuses

    Iv never caught a fresh water fish "properly" and wouldnt know were to start.

    Kids need near instant action or get bored and grumpy.

    We like salmon.

    "Anatoki Salmon" Takaka

    Click Grainy pics for vid







    All the fish in the "fishing" pond are 1.5-2kg, take em back and they fillet them for you and smoke or sashimi if you wish.

    Fry trying to get upstream in one of the ponds.


    Tame eel next door at bencari farm,great place for kids.
    geezejonesy and BRADS like this.

    Can think of a couple of adults I know with the same trait

    National Trout Centre near Tongariro also has some casting ponds for kids, don't think they are open year round...

    Brilliant VC. Great to see kids and family having fun. Laughed at your daughters expert knowledge as to why your son couldn't pull the rod up. "the fish is pulling the string" You are going to have trouble mate.
    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 actually really good to see VC. Made me smile at the memories that it stirred up.
