As the dust settles
The dust is literally settling. I'm not saying that the drought is over, but the dust gets wet every now and again. The figurative dust also seems to be settling...
Who can fathom that it is the end of February 2021? What happened to 2020? It just seems to have been a blur, or perhaps we're blocking it out and trying to forget it every happened. But, things are still ticking over, we're still here, and the fish are still enjoying their beautiful, nutrient rich spring water.
Talk of the drought is almost as fatigued as talk of COVID-19, but we can't bury our heads in the sand and hope that it goes away. We have to work with Mother Nature. Fortunately some of the waters in our area have received some good rains, which means that some of the dams have filled up. We're focusing on these and making them the best we possibly can. The trout that were stocked in one of our trophy waters a year ago, are now over 2kg! Catching and releasing that beauty makes all the effort worthwhile.
On the home front, we've been blessed with both returning and new clients; building on old friendships and developing new ones; meeting the most remarkable people that, without travel restrictions would never have been possible. There comes a time that we need to decide to stop putting our lives on hold, and we've done just that. It's time to share our experience, and our beautiful country with everyone, both locally and from further afield.
