New year hammer

 Been fishing a bit with the old fella round 

the corner for a while now ! Good too have 

cold can and listen too his stories from 

when he was back in tassie and wet a 

line.. I got smoked earlier on by what I 

thought was a nice shark on half a snook

being line cleanly snipped at hooks then 

it was Oldman s turn on what first thought 

too be a large eagle any how 15mins later

i beached him his first hammer... he was 

a happy man with a new story for me and 

him too share ! Nailed a fresh herring from 

my bait supply! Cheers pirate.
