    Weekend Away...hanging & fishing, Australia

    The trout season opened 6 hours south of my home this weekend, needing some major time management skills & family promises to get my trouty fix...

    Caught the tail end of a blustery cold front blowing freezing winds & horizontal rain showers.
    Setting up camp with watering eyes blurring my vision, numb lifeless fingers trying to thread rap rings & a slow brain took 3 times longer than normal.
    Tested a recently purchased HH tarp, simular size to the std issue, just with more tie downs points which was what i wanted...& came in real handy.



    Fish were hungry.......



    Time out to feed my hunger.....



    Sluggish inhabitant...


    Start of the long road trip back home....


    Good to get away from the hussle & bustle....
    With only a small price to pay...hopefully.

    Appears to me this Hanging/ Fishing thing is a world-wide epidemic. Looks like you had a great getaway. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Flrider,
    Had been regularly checking the weather reports before hand... just didn't sink in HOW cold the wind chill was going to be, went straight through me. Brrrrr.
    Tooo long lazing in the sub tropics does things to the mind, forgotten what real weather was like !
    Food was freeze dried Miso & Tufo soup, lightweight & supprisingly tasty.
    Water scooped straight from the stream. Also have some scroggin (a mixture of dried fruit, nuts, seeds etc)within reach in my side pockets, so I dont have to take off my pack all the time. The heavier stuff was back at camp.

    Thanks MAD777,
    Combining hammocking, wilderness camping & fishing....has got to be a winner in my book & catching fish were the icing on the cake !
