Great couple of days boating fellas.... good to meet some new people and put faces to the names.....

Wilkin run on sunday was great....thanks to Pete for coming along and leading the way......the river was very high and dirty but we still managed to find a clear back water and catch a nice brown trout. We boated up to the Kerrin forks hut - 2 rapids past the wilkin river jet pick up point.

you tube video still to come uploading now

one of the boats went up further but come back with a few stories of the odd touch or two......but the main group stopped at the pool above the swing bridge for lunch (photos taken off the bridge). there was only really one boat that got adventurous on the way up....but we had a good play in the side channels on the way down....no pushing though *-).....which i was just happy enough about being the newbie.....Wilkin was real good even though it was in flood...first time in some slightly bigger and rougher water.....good experience following Pete Steele.

dodgy video with all the wobbles......have to sort out some sort of mount for the camera or get one of those proper adventure cameras - go pro i think they are called.....might have to do some research....

you boating this weekend at mataura?
