"Granny I want to show you how good I am at fishing."
We hiked to this wonderful creek, and I had to show the guys how to bait the hook and to cast out. I told them, no big sharp noises or we would frighten those slippery little suckers away.
It looks a long way down to the water, I had to hang on tight.
"I think I have got one. Hang on mate. We want to have you for lunch."
Harold came around to help me pull it in he was so excited.
"Stone the crows, what a bottler of a fish.OK will you help me get the hook out Harold." We don't want it to slip back in the water." Sweet Pea , will you get the bucket." Thanks ..
I told, Wil, Harold, Daniel and Sweet Pea that is how it is done. We all need to get a couple more each so we can have a good feed.
All afternoon every one was very busy, and I heard lots of calls. "Quick, I have got one."
we would all run over and see how long it was, and in the bucket it went.
This one was caught by Sweet Pea. He was so excited.
We all had a dip before lunch, and then went straight back to fishing. We wanted to brag to the girls how many we caught.
While we were waiting for the girls we played cards and I was telling them about some Aussie slang.
I said to them "do you know what knee high to a grass hopper meant." I told them it means very small because grass hoppers knees are not very high. Tee Hee they all laughed.
Another one " What does flat out like a lizard drinking mean" no answers.... Well I told them it means very fast indeed. Because lizards tongues go very fast.
Last one... "What is a stunned mullet." It is some one in a dais, because when a fish is stunned he goes very limp.
We all had a good laugh.
The girls came back with their daisy chains and it was time to go back to camp.
Oh!!! we did brag about out catch.
Granny I don't want this to end.
I will see you soon,
