Be able to retire alot earlier in life, but what sort of a life would it be. Probly cry alot aswell, and buy a nintendo Wii and go fishing on that.

Hopefully it would never happen. Would be a sad day.

I would build a tiny little town out of paddle pop sticks and become the mayor.
I would breed lama's.
I would take up breakdancing.
I would become a Scientologist.
I would paint pictures of Elvis on velvet.
I would build a supercharged big block canoe.
I would decorate easter eggs.
I would start arguments with people in Coles for no good reason.
I would start a heavy metal hillbilly band called "you've got a pretty mouth boy".
I would terrorize all of the cats in my neighbourhood.
I would chase cars.
I would become a judge in the cut throat world of competition flower arranging.
I would take up full contact tap dancing. ( I said tap, not lap )
I would stare and point at old people.

Yep, if fishing was banned I would go completley insane.

Find the moron that sanctioned the fishing ban, dig up as much dirt as I can on him and publish it for all to see.
Find and push for research on how rec fishing doesn't do as much damage as they think and publish/push that said ban should be lifted.

In reality IF fishing was baned it would be a salt fishing only.. Our dams have been stocked for one purpose and thats fishing!! there is no way they can ban all fishing without a revolution starting!!!

If they decided to ban ALL fishing I would go postal:P or move to a country that still allows fishing!!!

Cheers

instead of fishing I might just try catching . I mean I dont catch much fish fishing
so if I try a new approach of catching fish I might be onto a winner . I have been boatless for three weeks now & have cut enough grass , pulled enough weeds from the garden , straightened pavers ,mended fences even talked to the wife .
cant wait till i get my new boat .

I'd still go fishing!!...ahhh the memories of my younger days scaling high fences and barbed wire to poach a trophy (also very educated) trout.Was a laugh one day when someone who'd seen me (ONLY time) came up to the fence and was yelling out "I know you're in there,there are no fish in here!!"..heh he..I was about 10 feet away face down behind a small amount of greenery and with a couple of nice fish in my bag...shifty as f$%^&!

Yes I'd poach,as much to spite the c#^&$ as enjoy myself!

I'd start taking out govt officials one by one, starting from the top. Then I'd start on every green group, making sure none of these get left behind. In the meantime, I'll be planning for such a day, while I'm fishing.
I'm with you Scott
Wouldn't surprize me if it happens in the future , Communists government we have at the moment ... we are slowly starting to get more and more rules and being told more and more what to do
And if taking them out doesn't work i'll get my wife to go and live with them then they'll know pain and nagging LOL ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

New Zealand might get a sudden population increase. A bit more civilised than PNG but not nearly so restricted as Australia. Better gun laws, better fishing laws. The we could get on the turps, make all sorts of plans to retake Australia, catch a fish or two, talk more rot, then do it all agian next weekend.

Just as a matter of interest.

do ya thing a medium sized overhead spooled with 50lb braid and 80lb leader an a gang of #7/0 hooks would be approprite for fishing for pollies?

I hear there are heaps of them clinging to structure in a bend in the river at the end of George St.;D

Yep, sounds good. How do you string a Minority Vote onto a hook? I've heard they're really good bait for Pollies...

Cheers,

Tim

oldboot
10-07-2008, 09:42 AM
you see there is the problem, a vocal minority is certainly a good burley, and the pollies will school around it very enthusiasticly but you realy have to come up with better bait than that if you want to hook one.

a vocal minority with an emotional issue, that has broad appeal and the possibility of personal consequences has been proven to be a reliable bait.
But remember the best of these baits are like soft plastics....... have the look and smell of a solid issue but in truth are devoid of all substance.

The problem with the average polly is that they will often bite on realy stale minor issue with little substance and give a wide berth to realy nice jucy issues that they could easily handle.

even when you do get one to bite, you have to play them carefully as they are experts in throwing the hook particularly at the last moment.

Even when you have them along side and in the net be very carefull this is one of the sliperiest of creatures. they can rival the eel in their sliperiness and their ability to contort them selves to escape.

The special trick these fish have is the back flip, you can have them played and landed, but if you don't keep a firm lid on the esky they'll do a back flip straight over the side and they will be gone.

best of luck.
cheers
