Sometimes it doesn’t take much for a day’s fishing to go from chocolates to boiled lollies.
As they say in the ad, your luck can change in an instant, and whether it’s the fish of the day (or lifetime) getting away, a favourite lure being lost, or a rod broken, the margin between triumph and despair is often much smaller than you’d like to think.
And so it was on a recent trip out of Albany in the Western Angler Westerberg project boat with Morris Wilkinson.
It was very much a spur of the moment decision, with Morris ringing mid-afternoon to see if I wanted to go salmon fishing from a local beach.
A mate had been catching salmon and squid just off Middleton Beach that morning, so instead we decided to quickly hook up the boat and drop it in for a couple of hours with the same plan.
