I can think of nothing worse than spending all day slogging through
mud, wrestling with gillnets full of catfish and the odd crocodile,
getting back to camp at dark and then having to chat politely with a
bunch of computer nerds when I could be eating (fish), preserving
fish, writing up notes or sleeping!
the Ricoh worked a treat, but being basically a computer it doesnt
like salt water much, so I had to be careful.
we invented a new collection method on the Wildman: startle a shag
rookery and pick up the warm regurgitated fish from the mud banks
below. Mmmmm, good!
