From the Back of the Comadore.
The October long weekend closed our Fishing
comp for this year at Lake Windermere Mudgee.
Though it was a weekend burdened by the
odd rain shower 14 Senior & 4 junior members attended along with 13 guests
(mostly kids) with 7 boats. The campsite was excellent with 24hr country
music playing in the amenities block? But the mud bank boat ramp was a challenge
to launch & retrieve. Just ask Brett who sank up to his thighs in mud guiding
his boat onto the trailer. Hope your back gets better ? The 4wd's attending
that weekend certainly served a purpose retrieving boats from the lake.
Though Crusty in his haste forgot to unhook his campsite electric light
system from his vehicle and nearly pulled his tent down? On Saturday Night
and attending Sailing Club put on a $10000 fireworks spectacular. You sure
don't expect that in the middle of nowhere? Unfortunately our only catch
was naturally, by Ian who landed a $20 fishing lure? However when retrieving
the line attached to it he brought up a $190 rod reel from the murky depths.
Ok so it wasn't a fish, but it was a keeper and we still weighed it in ?
