Welcome to 2018!

To tell you the truth I’m not one to set New Year’s resolutions but I do get a bit nostalgic as the year ticks over.

The recreational fishing industry is naturally one very close to my heart – as a mad keen angler. Each year the range of fishing equipment from reels, rods, tackle, clothing and in particular lures take a leap forward.

That said some things remain gloriously the same – mateship and giving each other a ribbing and on that note I think it’s fantastic that more and more women are getting hooked on fishing.

Below is a photo that sums it up for me. The photo is from around 100 years ago. A bunch of people getting together for a fish on a beach in Moreton Bay

The tackle may change but the beauty of fishing will always remain.

Now that’s something worth celebrating as each year ticks buy!
