Mine is to do better than last year which was absolute c**p. Did not catch one bass larger than 3lb all year, the bream were late and small and did not get a sole at all. Even the whiting were hit and miss. Am I losing my touch?

Oh right soz about that. I have a trout fishing pal who keeps saying the same but hasn't happened yet. Got to wonder if there are any trout left after all these floods. BTW I have seen blokes catching schoolies with a fly but yet to see a decent size bass taken that way?????
