Fishing â€“ we do it in ponds, creeks, great rivers, the deep sea. Some fall under the spell of the chase, some spend a lifetime trying to tie the perfect fly, some just like sitting on the pier for hours. These are tales of the fishing adventures and misadventures of amateurs and pros, one-time anglers, families and friends, in the stunning landscape of Australia.
Stories, pictures and hilarious anecdotes from folk across the country, including fishing royalty Vicki Lear, Philip Weigall, Steve Starling and Greg French, writers Hilary McPhee, Krissy Kneen, Vicki Hastrich and Angela Pippos, and many more amateur enthusiasts.
