07 Jul – Kimberley

07 July 2018

We are so fortunate to be able to work in this special part of our country known as The Kimberley. People visiting this area for the first time are blown away by the vastness, the unique landscapes, the wildlife and of course the perfect weather. 32 degrees most days and hardly a cloud in the sky is a pretty tough way to spend winter ha ha. Ian and Alison lived in Broome many years ago and are regular visitors back to this area and although Ian had been into the Kimberley before Alison had not and was quite nervous about the whole adventure. They bought along with them good friends Tony and Jodie and we matched them up with another couple from Perth Darren and Michelle. The group could not have fitted together more perfectly.

It was to be a bit of a mixed trip of fishing and sightseeing and although the girls at first could take or leave the fishing they all got into it and even out did the boys one day or maybe even a few. It was great to see the nerves settle down and everyone enjoy the whole experience so much. Many in the group had to learn from scratch how to cast, use the gear and work their lures. They obviously did a really good job as they caught over 50 Barra between them as well as all the other species which are just as good but for some reason only considered bycatch.

This was our last Kimberley adventure for the year so we will definitely miss this spectacular place until we visit again next year. We head out to bluewater for the rest of the year, quite a sea change. Thanks guys for making our last 2018 Kimberley adventure so much fun, the photo’s below are just a few of the many memories. It’s a pity the website doesn’t accept photo’s in Pandora format as I know Jodie has a few hundred rippers of these.
