Al McGlashan says weather and tide aren’t reasons to avoid fishing, there’s always a quiet spot somewhere

Al McGlashan says weather and tide aren’t reasons to avoid fishing, there’s always a quiet spot somewhere | Fishing Business | Scoop.it
FOR the past few days all I have done is talk about fishing instead of doing it. ­Being committed to the fishing stage at the 4WD and ­Adventure Show in ­Sydney’s west is all good, but it’s still nothing like ­actually being on the water, especially when the weather is sensational.
Deep End's insight:

Not sure if we agree with all of this article. Calm places aren't always easy to find or access. Ignoring weather/sea conditions  & tide can have dangerous consequences - always best to be safe particularly when rock fishing or having to cross a sand bar in your boat.
