Default New member from OZ.

Hello from Australia,
I recently joined the forum. I live and work in rural fringe town about 60kms NE of Melbourne in Victoria. I'm fortunate in that there is very good trout fishing in the local creeks, even the one that runs through the town centre. I occasionally drive an hour or so for the all day "expedition" but the local waters keep me more than happy. I mostly fly fish but sometimes cast a lure when lake fishing when the trout are taunting me just out of my fly casting range! Looking forward to browsing the forum.
Cheers,
Steve.

Thumbs up Re: New member from OZ.

Add my welcome from 12,000'ish miles to the North East of you. Minor suggestion go back into your user CP and add your location. Many times a question gets asked but the location really pins down better answers.

Thanks for the welcome to the forum. Top Blokes and Beaut Women (or should that be Sheilas?)--what more could you ask for?
Cheers,
Steve.

PS Blokes and Sheilas are OZ terms for men and women and no disrespect is meant or intended with either word.

G'Day siege,

Thanks for the welcome, much appreciated.
The longer I live in my town, the more I come across fishing opportunities close to home. Every little creek or run that I drive over gets checked out. Some spots are quite isolated and the thought sometimes crosses my mind "What if I slipped while wading and broke a leg or whatever?" The usual reaction to this is "I'll just try around the next bend, first!".
You wrote that I seem to live in fishing heaven. I'm just making best use of what have in my own backyard. Do you have any places near home that you dont consider just because they are close to home? You may be surprised.
Cheers,
Steve.

Welcome to the forum Oz.
I used to study and live in Perth, WA for 2 years. I missed the time drinking Emu Bitter while watching the West Coast Eagles vs Fremantle Dockers at the Subiaco Oval with my best friend there.

The fishing is always good in this forum Oz.
