Well it’s another one done and dusted, in fact my 10th Barra Nationals, and what a week it was. To say it was tough would be an understatement but I can honestly say it will go down in my record book as perhaps the most enjoyable one ever. Some fellow competitors would find that hard to believe…weather-wise it was the hottest one ever, so much so you couldn’t stand barefoot on the carpet floor! Which brings me to my point….should it be DOOM and GLOOM just because the fish aren’t on the bite? I think not. It was time to have some fun so that’s exactly what we set out to do…out came AC/DC, Van Halen and Dire Straits, a hint of Beer and Wild Turkey and things couldn’t have been better.
Congrats to Team Cunning Stunts for their line honours. A well-deserved win resulting from stunning persistence, patience, a ‘match the hatch’ mindset and a boat load of skill to boot.
I’m already prepared for next year!
In other news, I just love to see kids getting into the world of fishing. Check out young Nathan Tait, all of two years old…. about to unload a monster 17A Bomber from his outfit. Now isn’t that a breath of fresh air from the usual ‘Metrey’ photo…..now I think of it…I think Nathan is a metre tall!
See you instore folks!
