The Hunter and Gatherer


Anthony went fishing at Thomas River the other night. Being a school night the kids and I stayed home, but with holidays coming up we’re hoping to spend a few nights fishing with Dad!

It was worth the Boss’s while going to throw a line in the water as he came home with this six kilo ‘Skippy’ – one of the biggest he’s caught.

When the fish hit, Anthony was battling a salmon on his other line and thought that this one was a salmon too. Cursing, he just yanked the line in, not enjoying the fight that the Skippy put up. He’d been hoping for something yummy, not salmon after salmon, like he’d been catching. (The salmon we catch down here, aren’t great to eat).

To his surprise and glee here was a Skippy that didn’t fit into the esky with its head on, hence the lack of a head in the photo!

We had a yummy feed of fish and chips last night, while we watched the Eagles beat the Hawks – all in all, a very good night!
