    I am not sure who I am talking to with the section below, it's all too confusing .

    Agreeing With Steve B
    I agree with people saying a couple of beers and a corn meat sanga/roast is fine,
    but what Steve is referring to is that big Mondy Muster night, from 8pm to 5am was nowhere near a 2 beer night. Politely I haven't listed how much was consumed, please respect this action ok.

    A Big Night & Morning

    The campers that were not happy the next day, (comments not printed)
    The camperís thoughts on the matter when arriving at the next barra lake (not printed)
    The manager of the park was livid, (Comments not printed)
    The park ownerís thoughts on this behaviour (not printed)

    This stuff that went on could cost people their jobs, (Actions not printed)
    Which could have had the police around? Steve was smart enough to see the dire consequences of too much beer talk on the net and posted a well timed thread as many commenting have been doing so without knowing some truths, so I give you the benefit of the doubt for firing shots without knowing the full story, as face to face those shots would never have been fired.

    This wasn't just from a couple of beers, (8pm to 5am), so the couple of beers argument goes out the window. People that enjoy a couple of beers is fine by most people, and not drinking is fine too (equally). This debate is clear, have a couple or donít drink, thatís fine by everyone I would think, i reckon that topic is over now .


    Everyone makes mistakes letís just leave it as that.

    That nights feedback doesn't need to be printed, so Iíd leave this thread with, enjoy a couple of beers, no stress and probably leave beer threads alone, that night alone and the things that happened there as it might just cost some people their jobs.. Check with mates before posting a reply if itís going to have a go, as the reply won't affect me at all, but will affect others for life.

    Lots of respect and restraint has been used, I hope this is remembered in the future and all benefit of the doubt given, as there were enough shots fired to spark a reply. I gave the benefit of the doubt to a person and called him, now all is good and sorted, and we both had a sigh of relief after that call ha.


    Painted With The Same Brush
    If everyone posting on net site is painted with the same brush it makes us all in this together, current police requests to ban alcohol late at night in clubs, combined with federal government campaigns regarding role models and teenagers drinking should make us all aware of our actions. If people want more beer reports, donítí tell me I donít want to talk about beer, I will share one with you and a joke about it though. If people want more beer in our sport, thatís fine just call:

    Modern Fishing, QFM & Bush N Beach editors to make this request.

    Call the Owners of AFC & ABT to request drinking in comps and on TV fishing shows.

    Future Thoughts: Think about the long term marketing ramifications for fishing, what would the papers and newspaper headings be for these types of actions?

    Steve is correct, I know a couple of tournament guys who have been made aware of the downside of posting on the net if they are sponsored, donít bring the company unprofessional publicity, one guy has been wrapped over the knuckles for a big night out in a park (behaviour).

    Other writers have said ďIf you want a career in fishing donít get on the netĒ.





    My Thoughts: However I think if we work together we can be on the net and learn from each other.

    Being Positive & Moving Forward
    Lets move on to the fishing, Chris has been kind enough to start the spin thread up again and positive answers or suggested solutions (right or wrong) have been provided, at least we both made an effort to print learning info, has everyone else moved on and tried this? Currently that answer is NO.


    My Attempt to Lighten Things Up A Bit (At least I Tried).

    Itís funny what you donítí know about people. I used to work at xxxx for years, I have smelt, seen and talked about beer more than most people would have in 100 lifetimes.
    I remember one batch tasted like Corona, we made sure we got a few of those, and I remember deep conversations with old hats about the changing palate of the 90ís onwards generations as low fat marketing came in full swing with our foods which resulted in companies pumping sugar in to our food which resulted in people getting used to a sweeter taste across most meals in the day, so it made xxxx bitter taste, well even more bitter LOL.

    I nearly forgot to mention, we had a bar where all the beer was free.
    And could buy cartons at genuine 1972 prices from $12.
    Result: I can now smell yeast and hops from 100km away.




    Thanks for a great chat on the phone Steve your post on here is a credit to you and your love of fishing and learning. I hope to catch-up with you on my next trip to Monduran, share a handshake, maybe even a beer, but most importantly a quiet arvo fishing on a great dam with a nice person.

    Cheers Lyndon.


    Lyndon,

    Thanks for your kind comments seriously, but I am uncomfortable with your praise on this subject as I was one of the main offenders that evening...I certainly dont deserve any praise...EVER...whether I acknowledge it again 1 year later or not....I was hoping it would never been raised again.!!!....yes that evening that was pretty much as you have described, no one that was there needed reminding... it was dead and burried I thought.....We have learnt...and moved on. Hence the brilliant reports, behaviour and attendances at this years Muster, borumba bash and somerset sessions.....everyone has had a great time and behaved like model citizens!!...if there is a plus to be found since 2008 then that is it...thus we HAVE learnt. I figure the guys on here would have done 300 to 400 nights just at Mondy....mabey more since then with no problems whatsoever.

    Comments marked in red: my post wasn't refering to the muster.. sorry if it read that way.... It was refering to the general writings of my mates and I more recently....that we should think about how they are viewed, and tips for guys wanting to make it in the industry. I thought that was pretty clear in my post. I had made some smart a$%e remarks about 'thinkin not drinkin etc' and I appoligised to you on the phone as these sort of remarks are uncalled for...hence the train of my post.

    As for the chartruse highlight When we spoke.....you promised me (and in a followup PM) that you would not dig up old bones and flog us with them, if I wrote a post basically trying to get a positive message across regarding the way we write and portray ourselves.ie not look like yobos (that we are most certainly not). Now I thought this was a good idea, as the message was good, and I didnt want the 2008 muster brought up for many of the reasons you stated from the evening. I thought we had sorted things out and I was happy too....so I kept my end of the bargin. I could (and did) deal with any replies...it was all cool with me...a few had light hearted digs at me...they are my mate, and I knew what they were about.

    How do you think I feel now I read all about it again I know you didn't put all the details and I thank you for that....but enough was rehashed to be embarrasing and disapointed all over again....and you promised me you wouldnt bring it up.

    Boiled, with stingers, or fresh from the pack mate?

    If we do this on the water, say time it with a moon rise around 7.00PM, there shouldnt be any shortage of volunteers to act as seconds, problem is they'll be throwing slickies them selves, and not attending to us!

    Brian.....I am ready for the slickrig at 10 paces bro!!
    We all thought this was dead & buried Steve _ I was surprised when it was raised again 13 months after the fact........
    There was no mention of the success of the Bash ( which I unfortunately missed) , The Somerset sessions - which we were praised for by other campers & the park managers. & the most recent Mondy Muster ........ as you said "Model Citizens"
    The people that make up this section ....... are some of the best people you could meet _ they will go out of their way to accommodate newcomers & make everyone welcome.
    Any banter that arises is born from friendships , respect with a common bond of sharing the outdoors ...... & a passion for our iconic sportfish. - it just cant be beaten

    Steve ... .as for yourself - you are not only well respected as a fisherman but more importantly well regarded as a person ......... & besides we all need a mate nearby that can remove a 1/O Owner

    Its a shame that a bloke that was also at the event may not have been there all hours but hey duty of care they call it these days. Steve well said mate you post what you like when you like if there is a problem with it leave it to the moderators to be the ones who say what we can and cant post .

We all did that as free flowing thing expecting nothing in return and what happens you hit us all with olld memeorys thanks mate really enjoyed the trip down memory lane . Lyndon . IF all recall years ago old norm sitting in front of the telli enjoy his favorite past time arm chair cricket with a feew beers whats different from what we all do each to there own i say .
