    at lunch we have a picnic on the bank few beers and lots of laughs .
    patsy has her siesta
    while we half hartedly fish
    today pete landed 2 ,I got 1 and patsy and spike were out for a duck .
    we fished our way back to kingfisher
    returned after dark , another cracker feed , and a skin full of drinks
    I cant imagine returning back to my normal life ,after this trip . im dreading it .....
    slept like a baby tonight , never even woke ,till I smelt the boys fueling up mikes boat ,at dawn .

    Congrats on the recovery bluey!

    I love how in this day in age, someone still knows how to do real work when it comes to net work and is not talking all hip about networking;)

    Given the residents of that river it is kind of important to have a spotter! or at least a witness..

    Mike (in best Prince Philip voice): Oh look Patsy, our friend bluey has chosen to scrum with a crocodile....ole man is daft!

    Patsy (in best Queen Elizabeth voice): I do say, that is a poor choice indeed....shall we retire to the dining room love?

    Both with tea cups properly held close to the dish in right hand with the dish supported by the left, chest height.

    As far as i can remember, considering the temperature and beer consumption, there was some posh-ness to Mike that day...

    If i recall correctly, he was about to start slaying the tiger fish with his brand new TigerWakka... A fancy looking new spinner that was going to make us all look like we were wasting our time!!
    So Mike takes to the front of the boat, commands his new TigerWakka to go catch him a fish, sends it hurtling into the sky above the Zambezi River to search out a monster, only to have his line snap mid cast and watch his new "special" lure go arcing gracefully into the depths of the Zambezi!!
    To which his response in a most posh tone was "Oh, F**k!!"
    He then promptly wound up his line, sat back in the captains chair and enjoyed the rest of his day, staying well hydrated of course!
