We need the BIA to take fishing seriously.

If the BIA don’t treat fishing seriously, Travis, run your own weekend, a good old-fashioned fishing show.
Get Mr.Andrews to open it.
You will see the pic with the stack of rods. I think it was after the Tsunami.
The rods and reels were sent to Sri Lanka and Malaysia and were vital to getting the economy back, apart from allowing people to catch their own fish.
How do we do this folks?
C’mon let’s get the thinking cap on.
We all have gear that just sits around.
I’m not suggesting you give it away.
How can we turn rods and reels and boxes into money and you people then spend it on new gear?
You spend the dough at the tackle shop, or wherever.
Your gear is then sold to less fortunate people at a price and the surplus is used to get thousands of rods and reels through Travis and give to schools, scouts, etc.
So, can we have a ripping discussion and come up with some ideas.
I will guarantee some people in very high places will be reading this.
Let’s show them that the target 1 Million is and was a total pie in the sky.
I say give that the flick and get kids into fishing, that’s the way.
As John Kennendy would say…..
Dont think, don’t hope…..dooooo something.
Thanks for reading this. YYRH

Post 1/2
Gday ....yes it’s been a while.
I am managing my illness rather than trying to cure it with mind altering drugs.


The hardest thing of all has been the shame and embarrassment of mental illness.
Having been diagnosed at 68 years of age has been tough to deal with.
But you always keep pushing....
I am just hoping that others never get in that hole.
It’s the loneliest place in the world.
I will continue to assist anyone with the illness, if I can help them at all through my experience, I will.
Anyway, here is my post.
I have spent most of my adult life in the Fishing Trade.
I have never seen such a trough/downturn in the trade in my time as is there now.
I saw the enormous growth and following in the late 80's, 90's and into the new millennium.
People are blaming online sales and discounting for the drop-in sales and interest.
I think its deeper than that.
I feel that interest in fishing is waning.
Licence sales have sprung a leak.
I have just renewed my 3-year licence on the eve of my 71st birthday.
I’m not writing anything that Travis or Minister Pullford hasn’t heard.
Trav….the VFA site reminded me that I am 60 plus and don’t need a licence.
There would only be a handful of tight cracks who would whine about a few bucks to go to the kids.
So, I encourage all retirees and in fact seniors to buy a yearly licence. Despite not being legally required to do so.
Recently there was a Shimano Super Saturday, obviously a drive to introduce some cash through various shops and of course Shimano.
But all that does is make the trade tighter.
It also pisses those people off who have paid full odds at Christmas.
Yeh yeh.. I know I used to discount at the Melbourne Boat Show back in 1928.
Or was it 29, the year of the big log jam in Leo Ciscos cistern.
But the real smarties got onto our plan that we weren’t making any money out of the initial sales, but we gained a lifetime customer because we introduced them to fishing.

I need someone out there to come up with a plan to get things going.

Just in case some of you don’t know, join me on @3aw693 on Friday nights for the return of my Fishing Show.

7.00-8.00.

My struggle this year with mental illness led me to a treatment called TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)

This lot of TMS is now complete.
Thats me under the magnets.
This treatment has given me the best result since this rotten thing got hold of me late last year.
If you are struggling on the pills like me with side effects, it is worthwhile investigating, if you are suitable.
I hope to give people hope through my experiences.
My treatment has given me hope and I’ve felt better then I have in a long while!
AND TOMORROW WE FISH!! 🐟
