'Rodney & Penny' - fish hide in fear - at the sound of their name
(that could be why we never seem to catch very many)
 
 
 
 
In a couple of places in this email I have inserted 'smiley faced' flash sound buttons
which will play a sound when you just put your cursor over them.
 
 
 
 
And   nnnooowww - did I ever tell you about the MARLIN I caught . . . . .

FLASH BUTTON

Yes - unbelievable but true
as friend Fiona in America (who is one of our email friends) can verify
because more than 20 years ago - she was with me here in Australia
on that yacht sailing home from Narooma on the South Coast
when I hooked and boated the Marlin.
She steered the yacht about
for all the time it took me
to play and land the big gamefish.
And 20 years on and half a world away
we are now email friends again on the internet.
 
 
There have been many other fish caught over the years
but none ever as big as that one.
 
And that's it sitting on the wall.
 
..........ooo00000ooo..........
 
So now let's board the 'Time Machine' and zoom up to the present day.
 
 
                             
 
 
to 2009 in Botany Bay
 
 
You will recall THESE excellent catches from fellow yachtie Andy
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and let's not forget THESE good bream caught by neighbour Laurie

(Don't they look BIG now?)
 
 
 
So don't tell me we can't catch  B I G   F I S H !
 
Well at least we've got plenty of bait - all ready for when they turn up.
 
 
     
 
 
Did I ever tell you about the time I caught the big Marlin . . . ?
