Around Oz Trip (so far) - Perth to Thredbo (pic heavy)

G'day peeps

Been a while since I've posted here, thought it was about time I put up an update on my trip around Oz.  This is a brief picture summary of the first month away, we covered from Perth to Thredbo skipping a lot of SA as we used to live there.

We've seen a fair bit of cool stuff and so far, touch wood, things have gone pretty well with the car and van.  We hit a roo crossing the Nulla but damage was minimal, that's been about it thankfully.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the pics.

you've got to have a crack at the river run browns in the Eucumbene , drop into the little tackle shop in the main drag at Adaminaby and get the old fella to kit you up with some glow bugs and brown nymphs , then head on up to the river , great fun and some big fish should be on the move , you'll need some small split shot as well and some small swivels.

Nice pics too


Just one more cast , honest !!!

Cheers lads, I'm just using the newish Olympus Tough TG-1.   I've got the fisheye and telephoto lenses which help the pics a bit.

Goatch didn't end up getting to Eucumbene but heard a lot about it and hoped to get there.  Not sure what tackle store you're talking about but was it the Alpine Angler?  Heard a bit about that joint too and drove past it on the way in and out of Thredbo.  Wanted to stop in but it just wasn't practical.
