Before I get started with the introduction, I must start by saying that this forum is just fantastic. I stumbled across it about a year ago and the vibe and info at hand is just great. Anyway, enough of the soppy stuff.

I have been interested in yak fishing for a while now but I've had issues with storage space. Things have recently changed for me though (I bought a house!!) and I now have a nice Hobie Outback hanging in the garage. "Another bloody Hobie..." I hear some of you groan.

I've only taken her out for a quick test paddle so far but it is just as good as I imagined. The tricky part now is finding time for a peddle/paddle. I have a demanding woman and rather long 'to do list' courtesy of our new home... I know I'm not alone here!!

I'm sure I'll see many of you Sydney folk out and about in the near future.... and I may see many more of you as I plan to take this yak up and down the this wonderful east coast of ours (time permitting, of course).

Until next time...
Paul

Welcome Paul, hope to see you on the water soon.

w.r.t. yak time, try the early mornings, while the significant other is still asleep. You may be falling asleep at the dinner table, but at least you'll be snoring into a plate of fresh fish. ;)
I got into serious trouble with SWMBO for falling asleep at a friend's place one evening after an early morning session.

I am no stranger to early morning fishing sessions and I too have nodded off before the main course on few occasions. I just blame on the wine.

Likewise. I know there's a lot I can learn from you 'more experienced' folk.

I'm with you on that! They seem to appeal to a lot of people. Even Gatesy has joined the club (Yes, I feel like I know most of you guys already).

I won't bore you with too many details. Basically, I'm Sydney born and bred, 30 yrs old and been a land-based fisho for years (rocks/beach/estuary). I discovered soft plastics a couple of years ago and I can't get enough of them. Of late I've mainly been targeting bream in the hawkesbury but the yak now opens so many doors for me.

I'm pretty excited about the impending adventures!! I'm really looking forward to catching my first kingy!

Interesting? Perhaps.
Pathetic? Most definitely. Loops is what my girlfriend calls me (I can't believe I let the cat out the bag so early on). There's no story behind the name... it's just one of those things.

Let me guess your girlfriend is eastern european?
No eastern european in her at all.... unless she's lucky! :wink: I'm the one with eastern european background. :twisted:

I hope that attempt of humour hasn't lowered the tone around here. For some reason I suspect not.

I think it's obvious that I'll just be adding to the riffraff
