Fishing in the new millennium

IMG_3279

Looking thorough my bookshelf the other day and I came across a photography book that I had been involved in almost 20 years ago.

1.1.2000  24hours in the life of Australia was a photo book that documented all aspects of life in Australia on the first day of the new millennium .

65 photographers from all over the country spent the day taking pictures and the best were collated into this book, I went fly fishing with my mate Jack Quinn, and as luck would have it, he caught a very nice little trout just as the sun was setting. quintessentially Tasmanian, the image made it as a full page image in the book.

20 years is a long time, Jack is no longer with us, and I really miss the times we spent walking the lakes and rivers in search of trout! Happy to catch one, but also not at all fussed if we didn’t.   It was the company and being out in the fresh air that kept us going back.

Jack taught me to fly fish, one of my goals when we left Sydney in 1988, but it was almost a decade before I got around to it.I still will have a little bit of a cast every now and then, but losing your fishing buddy changes things a bit, and it is no where near as often as we used to go.

The other thing that has changed is me! Check out this head shot from the back of the book! I know many of the other photographers who were involved in the project, and I can see that it was not just me that has aged over the last 20 years!
