The cod bug had bitten again after successful trips and it was time to check out a new place. The gorges of the Namoi river was our destination of choice and after months of planning we set off in my Land Rover and my brother steves big Nissan and the drive wasn't tough but 60klms of dirt road didn't help. The place was awesome with a great house to stay in overlooking the river. We quickly rigged up and swano got a cod first cast (they're on) and while not big fish there was enough of them to keep us all entertained. I had a pretty heavy fall the first day and it just goes to show how easy it is to get banged up if you misjudge your jump. The gang was Steve, Swano,John dory and yours truly. We had a ball and Dave scored his first ever cod on a surface rat ... well done mate. There were some hairy moments with some type of nocturnal animal but a good set of ear phones stopped the frightening noises ? Thanks for a great few days fellas as I never stopped laughing all week. One sour note was I had a micro sleep at 120 klms an hour and only the ripple strip woke me. Be very careful on long drives and stop if you feel tired. BIG LESSON LEARNED
