“Tight Lines” we said to one another as we headed out on Port Phillip Bay

I love fishing – like anyone, sometimes I’m successful and sometimes I’m not.  12 12 12 like a millpondI was given a day out in the bay fishing for snapper – it was a part of my Christmas present.  (What a great present!)

So on a perfect dawn we headed off into Port Phillip Bay and hopefully to catch some snapper.  Serene fishingWe put out lines into the water and said to one another “TIGHT LINES!” – that’s exactly what we were after – TIGHT LINES!

My fishand a new design was born….tight lines taut against the weight of a fish as we pull them all on deck. Tight Lines by Jenie YollandThe center feature consists of lots of little lines in different blue and turquoise tones…like all fishing lines they are a variety of strengths, thickness and gauge.
