Hi Jim

I watched a few of them a while back, great listening to some of the history.

Thanks for sharing that Jim.  In the Ovens River history, Bert Carmody's brother married my father's sister, I knew him as uncle Bert, and Wally Mitchell was my mothers cousin.  Mum and Dad had a property at King Valley Valley, and Mum grew up in Edi at the junction of the King River and Boggy Creek.  Dads family had the Whorouly pub near the Ovens River for a while.

Dad and Mum's father would fish for Bream near the Edi cutting in the King River.  I had many trips to the top of the Buffalo, King, and Buckland rivers but all we caught were trout.

The breeding success with Macquarie's lately will hopefully result in them getting a leg up again I spent a bit of time looking for them when I lived in Canberra - the image attached is one we found in the upper Murrumbidgee

We got a few in Dartmouth fishing Downriggers, but I've never got one in a river.  They mentioned a remnant population in the Buffalo River but I never encountered them.
