Challenged by our ‘Two Selves’

This past month I’ve been challenged by my own thoughts. I guess we all are from time to time. I used to feel like there were two personalities in my head, and now I know there are. “Crazy?” I hear you ask. Nope, just honest with myself, and unashamedly honest with all of you. Recently […]

Happy Colonial-Commonwealth Games!

Ah, the Commonwealth Games. This may come as a surprise, but I absolutely love them. More so than the Olympics. Sure, they’re the result of a dark and murderous history, but we win lots of stuff, so I dig them – even if the other half of that ‘we’ doesn’t know I exist and would […]

Preparation, Anticipation and Daydreams

What an absolute cracker of a month we’ve just experienced. The start of autumn, fish everywhere, warm water and the final days of daylight saving gave us all the chance to jam more into every day.

“Marco!” “Polo!”

First things first, this is primarily an article about water polo, not Marco Polo, but I couldn’t resist the memories of that wonderful childhood game that must drive parents around the world completely mad.

Winter is Coming

Nothing brings the world together like a big sporting event, and the 2018 Winter Olympics, being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, from February 9-25 may just be the solvent the world needs right now. In fact, it may be the only thing that saves us all from nuclear annihilation. With Supreme Commander Kim Jong-Un, otherwise […]

Tight Lines and Sunshiny Grins

What a cracking start to the year – a solid month of proper Sydney summer, plenty of hard work to get the year off to a successful start and a few fishy days to keep the dreams alive. How’s your start to 2018 been? Fishy and full of friends, I hope. With the second month […]

All You Need is Love…

Fantastically, many of my friends’ young kids are falling in love with fishing. It’s an exciting time for us older blokes, as the reins of the fishing fanaticism are picked up by wide-eyed youngsters starting their own journeys of discovery in life and in fishing. As with any obsessive pastime or hobby, you need equal […]

Seven Deadly Sins

The HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series comes to town this January. Held at Allianz Stadium on the Australia Day weekend, it is a competition that only the players – and perhaps Fijians – care who wins. But the series has very little to do with the actual games. Any sport that actively encourages you to […]
