    Thank you to all that attended. It was fantastic.

    Bryan.
    I'm glad you got a big one. Pitty I could only find the rats and mice for you. Friday evening's fishing from the boat will stay with me for a while, that was a fun session.

    The boys's from cabin one you sure now how to live it up. Great spending time with you.

    Nice fishy Bryan!
    Herman's retelling of him rowing against(or with) the fish was a lot more interesting than story.

    Get us the dates for next year, and I will try my best to be there... this time.

    Now that is a big fish! Look at the size of that tail...

    For anyone that doesnt know John he is a big chap, well over 6' tall just to give you a sense of the scale of this fish.

    Sorry for this late responce but I would also like to say a big big thanks to all involved with the organisation of the event it was great. The men I fished with thanks to you too great time. it will be one that my boy will remember for some time too as he managed his PB with a fish of about 6kg and then the one that got broken off in the trees, as he puts it the fish of his dreams got away there.

    You all deserve a big thumbs up.

    ps John you just had to go and catch the biggest one again, well done mate.
