The Black Jug Fishing Haggle – Competition was on last weekend. Around 120 anglers both local and quite a few from town spent the weekend fishing around Great Barrier Island trying to land that big snapper. This event is held twice annually on the Barrier and the main prize is for the heaviest Snapper. Winner takes it all. The Jackpot was around 6500 NZD this time and an angler from town won it with an 11-ish kg snapper.
Well, it appears I have been a bit lazy posting but then again I haven’t been up to much lately. Things are going well at work and I will be working 4 days a week now. If I were to sum up ‘what work is like’ I would say: great atmosphere with a lot of strong characters, very amusing, you’ve gotta think on your feet and always have a comeback ready, it builds up the confidence level because I’m working with and around heavy machinery and fix stuff (it’s a great feeling to fix things, things that are actually needed), challenging and at stages exhausting. I’ve mentioned it before but I like to do so again. It’s a great feeling working in an environment, in which people don’t think they are better than others and don’t constantly think: me, me, me.
