well done billybob!.

haven't seen any posts from him in a while - hopefully he is still catching those monsters up Noosa way!

ps. any idea if that K-FISH magazine is still going to come out?
A legend he is, thanks for all your help in the past Billybob.

I might even have to buy this mag, sounds like some good reading.

I find it a great read, especially with the fishing reports. I was hoping that they might have run a story on Billybob, but no, Bill has himself written an excellent article about a wheelchair bound guy who he helps out on the kayaking front. Great stuff, and well worth a read.

Picked up my copy yesterday and had a flick through the pages, but havent yet had a good read. Yakfishing is getting very good exposure at the moment. Fishbrain's Trevor knocked em dead over at Ausfish along with WayneD's bit flattie. If Spottymac had of posted his Snapper on there, it would have also got tongues wagging. I think Billybob's front page will convert a few people who havent yet taken the plunge and we should see a few more yaks out there soon.
I don't normally buy fishing magazines, but this one is a "must have".

If we can get a yak on the front page say 3 times a year, that would be a pretty good outcome 8) .....and thanks Billy Bob and keep those Spaniards a coming...

Cheers all Andybear :lol: 8)
I was taking pics for a mate on my Swing at the Head of the River Rowing Regatta on Hinze Dam today.

The swing was the only boat within a couple of kms, other than race craft and a couple of official tinnies

And after the races I came ashore to have a few coldies, and was approached by a number of people who had read Bill's QFM article and pumped me heavily with kayak fishing questions.

Such an inspiring story has generated a lot of interest in yak fishing
Yeah on ya Billy Bob. With exposure like this, kayak fishing will be massive in the next couple of years. If it grows at the same rate it has since I started about three years ago, who knows where it will be in another three.
Will be good to see less boats out on the water and more kayaks.

One of our legends here in the States is Kayak Willie, who paddled one of the first (one-off) glass SOT's made and entered the here famous Pompano Rodeo Sailfish Tourney. He made his own rods, developed unique methods, built his own paddle, and more - all designed so that he could go offshore and compete against expensive sportfishing boats and their crews.

His story is fascinating and I had the great fortune of interviewing Willie, who has since become a good friend...

I was hoping to have free reign of the waters for a bit longer, everyone's doing their best to spoil that! ;-)
BB and IB certainly are awesome legends.
Been a long time, what's new with you Brad?
