RIP - Black Velvet 1960 - 2006

Many of you will be sad to hear of the tragic loss of 'Black Velvet' my favourite vintage Jitterbug. It was taken suddenly in a vicious attack by a large bass whilst swimming on the fringe of a water lily patch in Clarrie Hall early last week. It will be sadly missed by myself and all those that fished with it over the years. It went they way it would have wanted, doing what it loved best – catching bass. I hope it’s up there blooping across the big bass pond in the sky, its little barbless hooks straight, shining and sharp and its bib no longer loose.

1960 - 2006

The coroners report is citing a dodgy knot as the cause of loss. Police will be conductiong further inquiries.
