Paddling into a summery nor-easter at twilight.
Settling in with a couple of beers in the lee of Chowder Bay.
Tony (wearing a white head lamp) trolling his lure in front of a 200,000 tonne container ship as the night descends.
A close-up view of Tony with his head-lamp switched on. Vaucluse is the crazy electronic cacophony in the background.
The only thing that we caught all night was this beautiful blue-eyed Port Jackson shark pup. After carefully releasing him from the hook we returned him to his Chowder Bay hunting ground.
Tony paddling across the black harbour. The night sky streaked with the light of a million distant suns and two close planets.
The city nightscape performing its own multi-coloured neon light show.
Rob Mercer sagely observing our return to the Harbour.The one that didn't get away - an Australian Salmon caught on a Xmas Tree lure down towards the Rock Garden.
The fish fillets from which have subsequently been blended with Thai curry paste, coriander, garlic, a little peanut oil and lime juice ...
... and eaten with chilli jam.
