fishing spots

i went to find some saltwater fly fishing spots around safety bay and this is what i found


wharf/water and sheep’s head pie

i went down south to busselton for a drive and a look around .. busselton is 2 hours south of here ( as is the way in australia its a straight road) . i went to see if i like it and maybe move there. busselton is known for its wharf , 2 kilometres long, and beaches… it was impressive; i am now actively seeking work there.. long white sand beaches ,azure blue skies , cobalt blue seas and a wharf that is perfect to fish from.. this was just the beginning; southward down the coast get better .. i must find work down there and look around some more……  so where does the sheep’s head pie come into all this?  i was reading the book i was given for christmas (Londoner’s Larder by Annette Hope) and it mentions sheep’s head pie but does not give a recipe for it ,so i am looking for one and will take suggestions……..

rockingham aka swinging pig

saturday night in rockie for the non pub goer can be an interesting night . the biggest obstacle is no daylight saving here ,darkness comes early and so too the morning,  night comes quick .. this saturday night i went to cheak out a fishing spot ( i’m going to try my hand at saltwater flyfishing; this will be another post) the wind was up as always, so it was just another walk along the beach .. with a steady and regular wind the kite boarders were out having fun …friendly people, a nice stroll and  a few photos ended the daylight hours .. off to the pub for a quiet beer……
