Hi guys, Beez here. Im from Newcastle nsw. Im new to the KFDU family, and a keen fisho. I was thinking about heading to copeton dam on 27th 28th 29th October and I was wondering if anyone was keen to do a trip with me. Its a fairly long trip so i would prefer to go with a group just in case something was to happen . Any takers??
Cheers Beez

I'm a huge fan of the idea but am not in a position to join. The right circumstances and I'd make the road trip down. I have family up this time.

Certainly a place I'm keen to see. Good luck and hope you get some takers on the trip.

Hi Pavo, Thanks for the offer, but im pretty hell bent on going to Copeton hey. I went there back in July i think it was and got a 90cm on the first day and a 92cm on the second day, both on swimbaits, so im pretty excited about going back. This time last year, a mate and i lost 2 really big girls on surface, so guna give that another go.
Anyway, we will have to do a trip one day.
Cheers
