    Has anyone noticed the noise of the cicada lately? There must have been an impressive hatch.
    My mate Badger took this picture hope he doesn't mind me sharing it but bloody great photography.

    I took this small clip at the river tonight but the sound doesn't even play the part with the speakers up.

    Cunts of things. When I was hunting for 4 days in early jan you couldn't hear shit over them, mate keep grabbing them and throwing them at me too. Also went up to a farm last night and theres a bit of a drive through bush and they were still making shitloads of noise

    Flyfishing definitely, very good. Think of a humpy pattern, tied in olive deer hair. There are some pretty cool foam pattern out as well.

    Have you tried a live one on your spinning gear ?

    Can hear them when driving at 90-km on way home and to work with the window down a couple of inches. Must be a kazillion of them out there. Have noticed a number of the shells around home. I don't think we are anywhere near as dry as we were this time last year

    You should have eaten them Toby. If you take the wings off first they are quite nice and a good source of protein.
    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

    They sure are loud this year - they seem a bit late but usually start February.

    Has anyone got a theory that they go louder if they start later in the season? Maybe some kind of compensating?

    Has anyone else seen the huge dragonflies out over the past month or so?Name:  DSCF1243 Dragonflies.jpg

    We have a large section of poplar trees near our place, currently infested with the fucking things. Non-stop from sunrise to sunset and then last night they just started kicking off at about 0100.

    Seems that they've followed me to work as there are is a plague of the things in the trees outside of my office.
