    Looking forward to what I hope will be another good season.

    Anyone got any goals set for this year ? I wanna crack the 20lb mark. 15lb is my best fish to date.

    this flood should give the rivers a good clean out. arrived earlier than last year so hope for the settled weather from mid October. have already sorted the spinners out some new colours to try and stripped and upgraded a lot of old ones. even imported one or two that have not been available here for a while. read up on some new tactics. now need to check the reels and then wait !!!!!

    The rivers might be up for a while. Wonder what they do with the effluent usually spread on the paddocks ?

    I would love to get a bag limit this season. Also catch one outside of the Waimak.

    The thought of the new Salmon season is more exciting than the America’s Cup when we blasted out to an 8-1 lead. Good to see the old names back and new ones joining. My goal will be to double my tally, so if I catch 1, I’ve achieved my goal ! Actually that score is the same as my Salmon stats 8 years trying and 1 fish, so hopefully I can do an Oracle and even that number up.

    I’ve got a canal Salmon defrosting on the worktop at the moment, ready to be smoked for a get together of friends tonight. Nice, but shame its not the ‘real thing’!
