Like many of the Coventry makes, Triumph had their roots in the bicycle industry, beginning motorcycle production in 1902.

Well its good to reflect on your good fortune occasionally even if we don't share the 'merkins turkey day festivities....

Its coming on summer here and already the heat is being felt in the sun. Also the fickle winds of the spring equinox are becoming less strident and we are getting some simply perfect days. like last night - its a work day but on the way home on the train I was looking out over a mill pond ocean thinking, it really does not get any better than this and once I stopped caring about going for another ride on the bike, cleaning the other bike, the lawns or going to the gym I dragged out the kayak and found me fishin' stick...

Fresh Snapper for dinner tonight...

Can't wait...

How was the fishing? (I'm a land-lubber and only know about fresh water fishing.)

NOW THAT's A FISH ~

I just came back from three weeks of and I wanted to do a fishing charter off the coast ~ which is only 80 km away ~ the weather played against me and then just getting a booking was a hassle ..

I want to catch a nice Barramundi ~ (the creme la creme of Australian fishing ) but they are out of season till February!!

So the only fishing was done practising to master my new over head caster ~ rock or SHOULD I SAY ~ MASTERING ~ UNFURLING BIRD NESTS ~ :158

But Spring is really on us ~ it is a challenge to master time to service 2 British MC.. and endeavouring to do some fishing and I also want to buy a Metal detector as well ~ preferably Gold detecting capacity ~ But they are very ~ very expensive ~

Do you recall when we were youngens.. time was abundant !

Now ~ Where IS the time ?? ~

Tremendous! That's a far cry from the bass and crappy fishing around here.

It was a night of fishing magic... Shes pretty skinny waters off the coast where we live but that night it was impossible for me NOT to catch a fish. 10 legal snapper in an hour! 5 were a bit scrawny so they went back and the other 5 were perfect eating size so they were kept. Enough for a couple of feeds... YUM - you just cannot beat fresh snapper with a squeeze of lemon (except maybe gurnard)

And yes - that IS me ;-) First one is an earlier trip with some mates off Otaki Beach.
