That's 5 mins from my front door mate. I've moved upstream in search of the big uns, they are there at Conham and the boardmills, but it's finding them! You might get lucky and find one (biggie) amongst the snotties and chub, but I haven't.

Good luck mate, the weather is changing. We've had some rain, so who knows what might happen?
