Does my Asana look big in this?

Long-winged, Long-legged, Hunters… Swamp Harriers

Apart from Nankeen Kestrels and Black-shouldered Kites, both of which hover for sustained periods in open areas and are easily seen, birds of prey are not common in the Sydney region. There is a pretty good chance of seeing Whistling Kites, Brown Falcons and sea-eagles in suitable habitat, but others are uncommon or less obvious. […]

Celebrity Style Icons and Fashion Victims

By now, I’m you’ve heard about or seen Rihanna’s latest headline grabbing outfit (or lack thereof) – all glittering nipples and derrière and shimmering headscarf at a US fashion awards ceremony. If you can move past the shock value of said nude outfit, you might agree with US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who described Rihanna […]

A Time To Focus On The Basics

Crisp mornings, blue sky days and light winter westerlies are what all Sydney anglers hope for across the days of July. Whether your landlocked or boat-based, July is a time to focus on the basics, hatch a plan related to the prevailing conditions and stick to it. Quality lures, fresh baits and burley are vitally […]
