Rangi Boy ( Dion ) & I decided on a bass fish,well to see if there were any Bass in the upper Albert River.We launch off a pretty step bank just on day break with my landing net going into the drink first up never to be seen again.The scenery & wildlife was amazing we fished poppers first up on the mirror like river with no success. We then tried bibless crankbaits & spinnerbaits still no success I then went to a beatlespin a smaller profile and finally a Bass. Dion also changed to beatlespin & was also rewarded ,so caught a few small Bass great fun in these awesome surrounding about 10 mins from my backdoor. cheers fishbrain

Great result fellas, probably a top night spot in summer if you can survive the mozzies.

Headwaters of any waterway are such scenic spots to fish and enjoyed the look, thanks

I wear shorts even in cold Melbourne weather.

But that is because in cold Melbourne weather I have to put on everything I have taken down with me in order to keep from freezing. Bit hard zipping up the 3rd pair of trousers over the 2 pairs of shorts over all available undies, but one has to keep warm in such an inhospitable climate.

This is Troppo signing off from nice warm Qld!
