Restless by nature, on a whim I blew off city living and my career, to try my hand at a simpler-slower life in rural Tasmania. It's going to be one heck of a learning curve..join me as I find my feet, fingers crossed!

Fishing with a border collie!

Time to test Zuki’s sea skills after one previous excursion, which was a total disaster. He’s a bit older & maybe wiser now, so it’s worth another try..


On the day, there’s still a few doggie glitches:

  • Excessive barking at every cast which sets off the farm dogs, on shore
  • Having a 25+kg dog trying to sit on my lap
  • Trying to bite the fish
  • Eating the bait
  • Lots of wet sloppy doggie affection
  • Keeping him in the boat when he’s trying to bite the waves
  • Having his nose in every bucket
  • Moving around the boat too much




Back at the wharf he hops out the boat like a champion & seems happy to be back on familiar ground. A quick doggie dip follows, it’s hot work being furry & black in Tasmania.







It’s been fun. Perhaps next time Zuki & I will break for lunch at one of the numerous gorgeous beaches. Yep, we’re really doing it tough, down here in the Huon Valley.

  1. Hilarious. Laughed out loud at this one. We've often wondered about taking Baerli on a boat. I am sure it would be a total disaster for all concerned! Gorgeous photos.
