One step closer... last flick before back to work today and I watched a legal size barra follow my Z-man up, followed it back down, up, down and hit. Took straight to the surface and the hooks didn't set! All within about 2-3 metres of me! One day I'll get you lunchtime barra! One day!

This work hours lunch time fish continues to elude me. I managed a couple of Barra in this video on the final day of the 2018 Rocky Barra Bounty during a typical lunch break time, around midday. Unfortunately, I was off work due to injury, so again, it's not technically a lunch break... it will come!

I went back to work on call last weekend amd had a race meeting with a lot of walking. My knee blew up and now I have a decent swelling (bursitis) over my knee cap. Worked Monday, then wife dislocated and broke her ankle Monday night and have been off since with her in the hospital (surgery) and nursing for her at home. Back for part days on restricted duties this week. Restricted for my knee and part days for looking after my wife.

I am still incapacitated a bit, less so than I was in this little flick. I could hobble around the rocks. I am moving better now, but can't squat, kneel, etc. It'll get there with time. Aching to get out on the yak again, though.

Bummer about the bursitis - that can be really painful & uncomfortable! :beye: Double bummer & Bad luck about your wife's injury too!

Both of you - take it easy - do what you have to do to recover & don't 'overdo it'!!! :?:
