Oh well then I better put an end to the head scratching. The first one is the strip ar Gorge River and the 2nd one is the mouth of the mighty Cascade or the Cascade whitebait camp.

Couldn't agree more Corky! Used to be about this time of year that once the whitebaiters had been in for a wee while, I'd drop the Islander on Big Bay on the way to NZMF (pax loved it!) and drop them off a wee bottle, a couple of newspapers and a kilo or two of rump steak... always got a feed of the white gold whilst there and at least 4-5 1/2-kilo bags frozen to take home! Great days, miss 'em & the places/people...

Remember a big old hollowed out log bath tub on a strip down that way back in the sixties?
The Whitebaitin' technique in them days was falling in the river with ya mouth open.
Deer was like sandflies....

Vaguely recall similar Tinpis... the Hollyford strip springs to mind for some reason?

Yup, when I was kid whitebait was chook tucker -literally. It wasn't unusual in those days to wake up on a Saturday morning to find someone had dropped off a 10 litre bucket-full!!! Eat what you wanted, until you were sick of it, then give the chooks the rest. There'll be more next week...

...as were the helicopters of the airstrips in the area!!! I believe the feral population is exploding again, due the lack of hunters out there keeping the numbers in check! Wonder if we'll see the sights we used to see dawn & dusk again... fling-wing staggering home grossly overloaded, pilots & shooters covered in blood and ****e, helicopters littering the ground in every available spot! Huge fun in the pubs of a night too

Richo,
Willy arrived only about a week before I bugged out in Dec. Do you know if he's still there?

Is that the same BSH that I took down the West Coast on June 5, 6. 7th June1960??? It was a PA22 piper tripacer, painted red and owned by the Rotorua Aero club in those days. If it is must have had a charmed life, have seen that machine land at Rotorua with a heavyweight family onboard, returning from Air Force Reserve training Wigram, after landing Rotorua it was running on the nose, mains and the tail skid, must have had very good rubber bungees!!!
