      Many thanks to the volunteers who helped clear weed from our favourite pond today.

      Big shout out to Tony, Pete, Kermit, Gerald and John (Tony’s brother).

      After a couple of hours casting and pulling chains we managed to make a dent in the weed beds, the extent of which is yet to be fully known.

      By dragging the heavy links along the bottom of the pond we managed to drag/rip or otherwise remove around 85% of the growth. What was left mostly appeared to be floating masses that we hope will find their way to shore, with a little wind assistance.

      We’ll check it of course on Tuesday and make an assessment of what, if any further work needs doing. Thanks again guys we made a good team.

      Yes, thanks to all those on the working bee, sorry I couldn’t assist but unfortunately I’m still a “walking wounded”. Hopefully will make it to sailing on Tuesday.

        Well you may have had all those non dietary produces to eat @ the BBQ lunch but we got fish.

        This was our collection of size fish @ lunch time ( biggest 450mm – smallest 325mm). Ended up with 18 total by knockoff time of 14:00.

      YOU CALL THEM BIG FISH   I throw that size back….. My flat head fish hooks are bigger than any of those tiddlers ….the ones down here require a marlin rod  to land em   Sorry cobber but those  wee tiddlers wouldn’t even make bait for my hooks     but keep trying one day you might get lucky

        But we have pics to prove it, you know the rules – no pics then it never happened.

        Had half of them for tea tonight, in my custom beer batter – yummo.

      TO BE FAIR COBBER    I have seen white bait bigger than that lot   the batter would be the biggest part of em  I can see I will have to introduce you   to real flat head fishing where a flatie under a mtr is thrown back as to small
