Australian Adventure

I traveled to Australia for work a few times over the past few months. It was a great experience, and I met some great people. I was also able to get some fishing in and landed several new species. Although the pictures don't do justice to this beautiful country, I'll let them tell the story.

New friends we met fishing.

dug up some clams for bait.


Beautiful sunrise as we left for Sydney.
