Waiting for shool fish to arrive can involve a lot of patience.  Brian Davies (left) would go surfing when the waves were suitable.  Brian said the school fish usually arrived 2-3 days after the first 'cold snap' weather warning.

The late Brian Davies was a very good surfer and fisherman.  A couple of working holidays in Japan (hazardous chemicals on synthetic tennis courts) would not have done him much good, health wise.  He thought Japan was fabulous.
