  4. Hi All Been about 10 years since I last posted - used to fish Botany a bit with my son "RodHogger 1" before he turned into a teenager and life happened. Lucky enough to still be doing things together but mostly surfing in Bali, Sumatra, etc but this year with COVID we cant get away and we have therefore reinvested in a little tinnie last month (like I am sure a lot of others have also) RH now is somewhat older and has a boat licence so can drive around the old man so spent a couple of hours yesterday throwing soft plastics at some of our favourite flathead spots and managed a couple
