Making lures at night and

Tue, 2020-03-31 10:37

Making lures as a hobby, use to make lures when I lived in Darwin 20 years ago, been collecting a bit of desired wood from over east 6 months ago and finally kitted out the garage last year with sander, pedestal drill, band saw, air compressor, air gun, paints, extraction fans and table.

Started with a couple of hard body barra lures, top water fizzers, and starting stick baits this week, sitting at around 50 lures at 75% complete.

Making my own designs and most of the time is spent at the boat ramp doing swim tests (not now though, fish pond in the back garden will have to suffice) and how I need to change up to get the desired action.

Very time consuming but can't wait to test the lures when this bloody virus goes away.

Genealogy

Tue, 2020-03-31 17:46

About 18 months ago I took on a new project which involved recording my wife's ancestry into one of the various genealogy sites.  I choose Family Search but there are many, some require subscription, others don't.  My wife had a hard copy of a 110 page document someone had created which traced her ancestors from England to Australia dating back to the first fleet.  After completing her family I then did mine, both parents, all grand parents etc and it has become huge.  Along the journey I've made contact with cousins, second cousins and others I previously never new existed.  In my younger days to be fair I wasn't particularly interested however I now see it as something we should all consider doing for future generations.  Each time an ancestor falls off the perch we loose so much information.

If you don't have patience forget about it.  It can become quite addictive and time consuming.

 Same mate. I've taken over the judo training. Not too concerned with school, just doing a couple of hours of maths and english as they are 5 and 7. We miss our regular missions to Wilbinga and surrounds though.

Yes if whitworths is open it’s definitely essential but only if you’re going to buy something. Just browsing would be non essential
