Huge! Must of put up one hell of a fight. Only 3cm til the meterey (is there a club for tailor?). Fits the 3 foot club though (if there was one).

well, they have the 1 meter

Mon, 2011-03-28 22:44

well, they have the 1 meter club if you get over 1m (but not sure its an actual club, just a title). So if there was a 3 foot club, you'd be in it as that tailor is over 3 foot.

Rumour

Mon, 2011-03-28 19:16

There is a rumour going round town from a reliable source that a 1.02 metre tailor was landed and released along with a 1.97 partner a fortnight or so back from Dwyer's leap. Would love to see the pics if any were taken.

Bloody hell!!

Tue, 2011-03-29 08:09

On half a Mulie too. Always remember my meter + Tailor. Fishing as a Uni student of Wittacarra. Got there way first, but poor student only had a grandma car of a Corrolla. So from the creek bed watlzed in. About an hr later a bunch off "gray nomad" mates turned up in they 4x4s and the pr*%$ks pushed me off the gutter I was in (the best spot). As soon as I rebaited there was one in my spot. About 20 of them and I was a state rugby player and just about wanted to flatten the lot. Men in blue came to my mind and I got sense.

Decided to leave and went to the Blue hole trying for some lesser fish, on light breamsky gear, and hooked a screamer. 1.02m and was I over the moon. Not nearly as fat as that one, but over the m. Still loved smoked tailor and those days catch and release was not something a hungry student did.

Drove back to Witta, carrying the Tailor and shoved it up the old farts. Thought it was possibly a record (it wasnt so they do go bigger and as the tackle shop owner said "big but small for here sometimes). He did take a pic and it was on the brag wall for some time.

Mate that is still one very very large and very fat greenie. Oh fark that is a no no word on this site now. Greenback!!!!

POTM for smile and fat tailor.

Its a honour club, much like the Golden duck club in cricket (which I am a member offf ) and the barra club 1m club. Its just to say that you are in it. Pilbarra brad and others on here is in it. I also think that there is a 50cm bream club, but like I said only a term of honour, not a club as in the Eagles etc.

Neels
