Getting back in practise here in Melbourne at the moment, fishing places such as the Murray river (Yarrawonga) Lake Elidon, etc, but going to be moving back to Brisbane at the end of the year. Anyone in Brisbane interested in some serious carping later in the year. Would love to meet like minded individuals who would like to crack the Australian carp record, share ideas on how to adapt UK techniques to meet our very different conditions, etc; personal best in Aus at the moment just on 13
