I recall Neil Elphick and I went yabbying one day out to the "Blue Hole" at North Katoomba, a good way out in the scrub behind the Katoomba Reservoir. We caught some beautiful blue yabbies and then a big rainbow trout was biting on one of the baits - we couldn't et him because we had no hooks. Next weekend we went out there again with worms and hooks and caught a heap of rainbow trout. We often used to go out there fishing after that. Years later I took Sally there and we caught yabbies and trout.
