New book: It Happened on a Fishing Trip


THE only thing more Australian than a prawn on the barbie, is a prawn on a barbie that you’ve caught yourself. Over five million Australians fish for fun, which makes it one of our most popular pastimes.

There are many reasons why we love to fish: some fall under the spell of the chase, some spend a lifetime trying to tie the perfect fly, some just like sitting on the pier for a few hours. It can also mean seeing your dad differently, learning how to pitch a tent, or spending rare time away in the outdoors and communing with the Australian wilderness.

It Happened on a Fishing Trip is a collection of the stories that at least five million Australians can relate to – the fishing adventures and misadventures of one-time anglers, amateurs and pros, families and friends, all in the stunning landscape of Australia.

This book features stories, pictures and hilarious anecdotes from folk across the country, including authors:

• Angela Pippos
• Vicki Lear
• Philip Weigall
• Steve Starling
• Greg French
• Hilary McPhee
• Krissy Kneen
• Vicki Hastrich

Available to purchase from November at Booktopia.
