Summary January 2017

Facebook provides an excellent and simple facility for conducting group discussions in text form, including unbeatable support for adding still pictures, movies and "shares". As a result, with our Facebook Group we have better media-rich communication within Noosa Yakkers than ever before, with lots of info and useful material appearing quickly on our Group because it's so easy to post, to view and to make comments. Not on Facebook? I encourage you to dip your paddle in the Facebook sea and give it a try. If the oldest members of Noosa Yakkers can do it probably you can. Not convinced? Don't despair. We have no intention of dropping our tried and true Google Group email or our indispensable blog of Trip Reports and generally useful yak fishing info. But if you're not on Facebook, you're missing out.

To help retain contact with our established world wide blog audience we've decided to publish this monthly summary of our fishing activity. The info has been extracted from our closed (private) Facebook Group. Constructive ideas to improve this summary and/or volunteered editorial skills are welcomed.

Don't want your Facebook post reproduced here? Please contact a committee member.
