Anyone interested to share a new business venture. It's on a tropical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Need to work out some sort of a job share shift.

Can you make out a shank and a set of eyes? Self inflicted. :lol:

I remember that Tony, it hurt like hell. Expected to look down and see the fly stuck in my side.

A couple of interesting crab species found in Exmouth, maybe some big Permit food ?

Tackle failure. To be fair, this Tibor was put through the ringer. We came across a ball of prawns that held the attention of some rather large golden trevally. This is what happens when you hook 4 goldens in a row that takes you deep into backing, with a heavy drag setting, in 40 degree + conditions with not much breeze.

Knit and weave. One of those bait balls that we came across. When you don't patiently wait your turn, and everyone on multiple boats cast into the midst of busting up fish. Amazingly, Ross managed to get our lines apart, and most of those fish were landed and released.

The old burger van in Exmouth. This was always a good fall back when we were too lazy to do a cook after a long day on the water.

Why we tie hundreds of flies for a week's fishing. These ones are destined to be recycled. Hooks and eyes salvaged, to be retied for the next trip.

Steve's TCR about to earn more frequent flier points. :lol:

I don't know the last time that Trigg Island was actually an island. I have a small memory of some 40+ years ago that I saw it. Probably since but certainly not common (Monday afternoon).
