Headed out for a few arvos on the Tweed and out of the Coomera River into the Broadwater to chase some fish with the boy!
It’s all about passing down the small things, like baiting a hook, adjusting a rod, feeling a strike … seems the young lad has the fishing bug after all!
Love the array of local birds out around our waterways too. Sometimes it feels like you’re in the middle of some National Geographic epic or Discovery Channel special. Truly spectacular environment just a few minutes from the populous.
Lots of different encounters and fish, many to return back to the water, a few to take home. I dropped something massive at one point, nearly snapped the rod until the line gave way, will always wonder what it could have been. A giant metre-long flathead? Stingray perhaps? It wasn’t a runner, but it did try to take off – it’s 5 minutes of mystery now haha.
Lots of little fish about, perfect for teaching Kyal how to rig, bait, cast, wait, reel, land etc.
