Aussie Salmon on the move
Photo courtesy of my friend Mark. A huge school of Aussie salmon basically at wading depth, vacuuming littler fish. I gather they were once a very common sight in these parts, before being fished very hard for canning. They're not the most delightful eating (being quite strongly 'fish' flavored, and not having great keeping quality) but they are fun to catch - jumping all over the place and very aggressive takers of small fish imitations.
