Great catch Rob!

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 18 July 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

While our tour group was out cruising with Neville on the East Alligator River, Rob - our driver and tour guide for the day - stayed onshore. With a bit of time to spare, Rob went fishing. And he was in luck! Here, you see Rob with a very fine Barramundi - the much sought after fish in the rivers of the far north.

This shot concludes my trip into the wetlands and stone country of the Kakadu National Park. Hope you enjoyed it!

This is a place where we must be careful ... I do not like crocodiles, they really are animals that impress me and scare me when I have no fear of a lion or a tiger
