I used to love going fishing with my dad. Not that it was a common thing. We were land-locked growing up in Orange, high in The Central Tablelands of NSW. Sure there were fishing spots nearby. Apparently you could catch fish in Lake Canobolas; dad's sister and her family had a van at Lake Burrendong not far up the road; but our weekends were full of football and hockey and horse-racing and hanging out with friends. Fishing wasn't a great priority.
