It is the height of the salmon season here. These are not related to the pink fleshed wonderful eating Tasmanian or Canadian salmon, but are unique (I think) to the south of Australia.

There were lots of people at Pt Picquet this morning and lots of salmon apparently. Here is one in the process of being caught (or missed? ). They are great fun to catch.
