1st April 2013

Salmon season on Parry Beach Western Australia is now well underway

When www.findafishingboat.com.au visited Parry Beach in February, Dave (FAFB) was chatting to David Kirkwood who described the highlight of the year which was when the salmon run into the bay in March. Unfortunately we were there too early in the year to see this event but David promised to let us know when it happened. True to his word, it was a pleasure to receive the following email on 1st April.

Good afternoon David

Well what can I say,
