Reel­ing in new year

Broome Advertiser - - Front Page - Sara Hen­nessy Sara Hen­nessy is pres­i­dent of Mary Is­land Fish­ing Club in Derby.

I per­son­ally love stay­ing in the Kim­ber­ley for the Christ­mas and New Year pe­riod and tak­ing the op­por­tu­nity to do ex­tra fish­ing trips and ex­plore my own back­yard, which is what we did.

At the Derby Gen­eral Post Of­fice just af­ter Christ­mas, Brad, the man­ager, asked ex­cit­edly if he could get my email ad­dress so he could send me a photo of the Box­ing Day barra his daugh­ter had caught, a beauty by all ac­counts.

Ex­cel­lent, I thought, I have a photo for the first col­umn for 2019.

A week goes by and I’m back at the GPO and Brad is apol­o­gis­ing for not send­ing the photo through be­cause he had lost his phone.

Well, not just lost it, it was sit­ting at the bot­tom of Geikie Gorge af­ter a fish­ing trip with a mate ended up with them flip­ping the tinny try­ing to get a big barra in and the two of them hold­ing onto a snag un­til they got res­cued.

I was belly laugh­ing at the re­count of the mishap and as a re­sult I have in­cluded a photo from my fish­ing trip to Yampi Sound over Christ­mas.

Happy New Year!
