Picture this, you’ve been driving for 10 hours along an unchanging highway, there are Macca’s wrappers scattered throughout the car, you’re down to your last Red Bull and the fishing rods rattling against each other in the boot are starting to send you crazy. But wait! I promise it’s worth it. When you arrive at any of these fishing spots you will jump out, kiss the ground and think you have arrived in nirvana.
