Fly fishing

Ice bath with a difference

This is a post for Stack and Jonny, who love Bright and who put this idea into my head. Today is my recovery day, which usually means a sleep in, ice bath and coffee time.

I've just checked into Chateau Mock, aka Andrew's parents' place in Porepunkah, near Bright in nth-east Victoria.

When I was in Adelaide over Christmas, Stack and Jonny gave me the idea of going fly-fishing up here without waders so as to get an ice bath effect. I tried it this morning. My fingers froze and I had trouble getting hooks out, but otherwise it was awesome.

Here's a pic of one of our catch. All released to fight another day.

And now I've found a new favourite recovery day activity. Thanks boys!
