Hey Mat and Jesse,
Keep up the good work, sounds like you're getting the hang of travelling about Oz. You've got some good photos there. How is the travelling book coming along?
cheers Pete

Hey Jesse and Matt,

Love the website. Its great. Sad to hear that you guys didn't end up catching anything of a good size after we left.
We want to thankyou both for such a great weekend. Siting around the fire, drinking beer and talking shit was the best. I love it. "You guys can join my camp fire anytime" he he. That saying is from the Man from the Snowy River.

Anyway have fun on Fraser, you should definately catch some fish there and of descent size.

I llook fowward to the next update.

Cheers
Simone.

Hey Boys,

Sounds like you're having a blast - bastards. Jealous as all hell. I can only find confort in the fact I'm closer to Berka than either of you.

Sad innit.
From Dick - Wednesday, 23rd August 2006, 00:05 (GMT)
59cm.. is that all, talk to me when you've caught anything decent in size.. haha
I'm at work and reading this and am soo jealous, glad you boys are having fun, catching some sun and fish. Nice work.

I am loving the site lads. It really takes us into it with you. Love the photos especially. Cant wait for the next installment....

Have fun mate. Now is the perfect time to spend the time learning to fish on the fly... you know you want to.

You fished the Gorge ! Legendary stuff . You know a 7 weight flyrod and a badass popper would have had bass crawling all over it, don't you ?

Have ya got a tinnie ?

Cheers, Jules

G'day Mat & Jesse,
Its 7:30am and I am in the office (Kent St) looking at tower cranes, building facades, piles of documents and emails and then I read this....need I say more. Please keep up the diary - fantastic to read though it was strangely pleasing to read that you were both freezing on day 9! Alex Badgery
Piles of paper are good for you - piles of fish and lots of freedom are good for me!!!!!
From Bowy - Wednesday, 9th August 2006, 22:42 (GMT)
You bastards! Sounds like you are having a great time... hope the fishing picks up.
I have an interview this arvo to work for Fosters (Carlton United Breweries)... my dream job. All the best lads, and Dus, I am going to punish you in the Julian...
Going down Bowman... Good luck with the fosters job!!

Did you make sure that you packed the squid lure? - for salt and pepper squid. We'll be heading over today to the Noodle Star - thought you'd be interested. How's the new ebay fishing reel - is it up to scratch?
salt and pepper squid sounds great - haven't had anything like that for a while! Fishing reel holding up well!
From Amy - Wednesday, 9th August 2006, 23:46 (GMT)
Sounds like a tour of beauty - natural wonders all round. Sorry you missed Rob but he's here this weekend so will say hi for you. D and I will wave to you from plane to Brisvegas next week. Hope the fishing picks up!
From Stu - Thursday, 10th August 2006, 06:59 (GMT)
BASTARDS. Freezing arse off in ireland and all you can talk about is fishing and drinking cans around camp fire. Well its finally under way anyway. Sounds great so far. Myself and stace are heading over in october so dont know where youll be. We will be hitting cairns, brisbane, perth, sydney, melbourne and then driving to adelaide. The southern areas will be in the wrong direction but it will depend on how far north you are going and the length of time your going to take travelling up.
Take it easy guys
keep me posted

I will take on, and punish, the winner of the choccy challenge in a world championship showdown.

Sounds like you are having as much fun there as we are in Sicilia. We survived our first 10 hours of driving with crazy Italiano's yesterday after lounging around on the Amalfi Coast. Off to Mt Etna tomorrow and a bit of Taormina magic.

So you bastard's aren't the only ones having a great bloody time !!
From Sarah - Monday, 14th August 2006, 19:04 (GMT)
Hi Mat,
Great to see you are having the adventure of a lifetime! Still plugging away over here in the UK, but will be coming home in Oct/Nov for a few weeks for a fleeting visit, but guess you will be off somewhere exotic! Hope things are going well and make sure you catch a barramundi for me at some stage!! Hope to hear from you soon.
Take care,
luv Sarah

G'day Lads,
Sounds like you're gonna need a bit more luck with the fishing. Lucky you've got the fred rogs to rely on in the event of an emergency.
Good to see a pretty full account of things already. You've got some great photos up too.
Keep up the good "work".
Cheers Dave

Looks like you're both having a wicked time. Was having drinks with Mel Alsop over here the other day.. London seems a far cry from you at the moment. Spud sent me your ph number so will call at some stage. oh.. and did you see mum's fish.. I think she caught a bigger one than yours... how annoying for you!! H xx
From Spud - Wednesday, 23rd August 2006, 10:12 (GMT)
It taken a long time coming but jee it good to see you out on the road. To be honest I was bit worried that you might not catch many fish and I would have a cranky brother but it looks like my worries are over!!
love spud

Boyz,
Seeing as though you're having trouble getting phone reception, I was considering training carrier pigeons. However, in light of the news you've had a dry spell fishing over the last week, I'll consider the birds' safety and give the idea a miss.
Enjoy the Nth Queensland coast..

Taken me a while to get on your site because of restricted access..."profanity" the firewall tells me. It's prob the picture of you Dus in that tank top. Kidding, you look hot in a man kind-a-way. Mat great beard, I would expect no less from an adventurer such as yourself. Pictures and tales are great. take it easy guys. A
Thanks Curley...It is now known as the amish growth thanks to mat shaving off his mo and leaving the beard..photos to come!
