the eucumbene river
One of my favourite things to do is be outside. Heading up to the Snowy Mountains in the NSW high country is about the ultimate version of being outside. A week fishing the high alpine waters of the Eucumbene River, one of Australia's most pristine environments is just what I needed after such a busy year. Now I feel a bit refreshed and ready to go on the next year of adventure.
I cut a video whilst on the trip, and couldn't wait to try video editing for the first time. The camera work is a bit dodgy but it gives you a general idea of my past week....although you'd swear I didn't actually go because I did all the filming and don't feature in the video. No I haven't lost a heap of weight and aged a decade or so.....that bloke is my fishing mate Jeff, who over six months ago offered to take me to his spot. For that I am very grateful and also for the tuition and guidance he gave me for the fickle mistress that is fly fishing. Thank you Jeff....especially for your patience when I was constantly shooting more footage. Until next year mate.....when we will again fish like wild men, feast like kings and drink like lords.
