FISHERMAN'S 'MEMORY OF TIDBINBILLA' POEM


I like these old poems.

One for the fishermen... a Queanbeyan (I presume) resident's 1917 poem dedicated to an experience whilst fishing for trout on the streams around Tidbinbilla. Fishing was a popular pastime in Canberra whether residents were casting for fish, dynamite fishing or fishing for dingos.
