Two photos of me practicing the noble art of angling have been published in a fishing magazine. On one of the images, you can see me still in the heat of the action, bringing a Barramundi to the net. In the other one, it is the more classic "bragging pic", where I proudly hold my catch.
The magazine is nothing else than the very good North Australian Fishing & Outdoors.
My favourite fishing magazine, as it is about the only one that issue after issues is relevant to someone fishing in Darwin.
Here is the Magazine:
In this very issue.
In both photographs I am wearing the fishing shirt that Colin, the boss of Reidy's lures had given me as a present. In the first photo, I am also actually catching a fish with a lure made by Reidy's, called The Judge.
And here it is:
A very focused Rambling Expat.
In this image, the Barramundi was just about to jump out of the water and make a last run before being netted.
And now, lets brag:
Look at that!
In fact it is not the same fish than in the previous image, it is from another day, but still with my lucky shirt.
Both fishes were caught during the Top End Barra Series last year.
The first at the mouth of the Adelaid River, in Arrabmundi's boat. The second one in Darwin harbour, from Dingo's boat.
I did not send any of the photos to the magazine, but I suspect that Dingo, one of the organisers of the Top End Barra series has sent the images.
This was a good and amusing surprise for me when I purchased the magazine.
And yes I know, in none of these photographs I am holding a metre plus Barramundi...
The Metery club hasn't open it's doors to me yet.
But hey, it could be worse.
Have a good day,
