    We got 40 odd mls of rain in the storms on Sunday evening. First bit of water found it's way into the dam. It's a couple of ft deep, so it's an encouraging start. Bloody dogs think it's their personal swimming pool, that's gotta stop.

    Enjoying the thread mate, the anticipation is killing me and I'm just reading about it. Keep the reports coming for the next couple of years as it progresses. I can't wait to see the photo of your first fish capture out of it.

    will you be putting more structure in there at some time?

    Yeh bdowdy, bloody dogs think everything we do is for them. They're spoilt rotten. The anticipation's killing me too Shane. I'm a weather nut already, but I'm constantly scouring the weather sites and praying for massive downpours, bring on the storms! And Daz, I've scored a couple more logs to put in there, but not much more hard structure, mainly lillies and stuff around the edges.

    Just wondering if 30 or 50 tyres placed in there would be any good for structure. But I love it, have you got a ramp there so you can launch the boat to easily work on your trailer
    A marriage licence should be like your fishing licence!
    Expires every year and you get a 3 day pass when you go interstate.

    Didn't think about that Roughy. That'd look so funny with my boat sitting in it, make a cracker photo.

    Will your dam be electric only, or would my 5.5m full boar 115HP be okay to launch there?

    Not enough time in the day, to many spots to fish!

    Hey, i think you are going to have to fence it off from the dogs. Good luck with it all, green with envy!

    Bit of an update for any of those interested. Got pretty smashed up by the storm saturday night, our neighbourhood was badly hit. We were lucky with no serious damage to the house, but heaps of tree's down. Upside is we got about 60mm of rain in about 45mins, meaning serious run-off. Dam is now about 2/3rds full. Some of the logs are floating, hopefully they'll get waterlogged and sink. Got plenty of gum trunks laying around the yard if I need replacements anyway.

    Hey Tiges

    Your running out of time to put in your screened, trickle flow outlet to keep the critters in etc after she fills!

    Looks like one or two more rains and you will have it to the top. Cool.

    What could go wrong.......................
