I should try to catch a fish on Saturday then. Winter hasn't been the best this year - hanging around my neck like a sodden heavy woolen blanket. And now spring is nigh. At least there's the sun. I'm in need of it, but fcuk off daylight saving and the relentless devil winds

Luckily today I caught a jew, a tailor and a flathead: a spring trifecta.

Otherwise, I'd head to the Himalayas for 6 months from daylight savings.
Stellar effort on a day of increasing northerlies.
I wet a line twice - zilch

I don't think you are doing it right Salts.

Bring your gear down this way and I'll show you how to catch a flathead.

similar spring to last year, a great late run of south swells with a hint of east in them.

I heard this bloke on the radio the other day; specialist in mental health and he was talking about some reasons for depression being seasonal and related to disrupted circadian rhythms amongst other things.

Immediately the penny dropped. Soon as spring starts I feel this almost insane restlessness and general sense of ill-being. That gets super-charged as soon as Grand Final weekend passes and daylight savings starts and the spring/summer world of endless hot windy afternoons descends.
I hear you.

i was reading how strong winds can aggravate and even cause anxiety and other mood disorders. It never spoke of wind direction. but there's something about a strong, sustained northerly that gives me a restlessness and changes my mood. and it's much more than just not surfing. 1 or 2 days of N winds, and i resign myself that I'm not surfing i find other things to do, or get super productive at work etc

... but once we get into a sustained run of a week or more. i start to fray a little. I notice driving around I'm less tolerant of asshats. my neighbours on one side who are nothing but self-absorbed pain in the butts, become this all together unbearable menace. i get super itchy feet to surf travel where it almost obsesses my every thought etc etc

Maybe i might come down and fish with you shep.

Depressed because of the wind? Sounds like you poor simple cnuts need to harden up.

It's just the early dread of the Silly Season kicking in.

Riding a bike is something your average 4 year old does with no problems whatsoever Loof.

I guess that is why it is so popular with adult learners who need a "sport" with a skill base a pre-schooler can master.

Anyone can ride a bike Stephen, its where we ride them that splits the men from the boys. As I said, you haven't got the ticker for it - it's not a derogatory thing, some people just wern't built for intense cardio, stamina and endurance.

What, around Sydney's eastern Suburbs?

Every second middle aged cube monkey cnut seems quite able to don the lycra, get himself ripped off at a bike shop on a ridiculously over-specced status symbol of a bike and get the job done Loof.......so I'd take that exceptionalism argument and flush it down the toilet, stat.
