Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:

Great report & photo
Is that a 10lb trout, or an optical illusion
Well done boys
Going to the broken river, in 2 or 3 weeks, at Nathalia, we'll see how we go
Btw:bait & lure, not fly
Cheers Gra

Hawthorn defied the odds in 2014 to win back-to-back premierships for just the second time in the Club's history.

on the Silver Anniversary of the first in 1988 and 1989.

After defeating Fremantle in 2013 decider, the Hawks faced a new challenger in minor premiers Sydney Swans on Grand Final day but proved too strong, playing their best game for the year on the last Saturday in September.

In a remarkable achievement, the Hawks overcame a number of challenges throughout the season to win the flag, including injuries to key players and Senior Coach Alastair Clarkson forced to sit out five weeks while recovering from the rare illness, Guillan-Barre Syndrome.

After qualifying for the finals in second position, the Hawks produced their best football during the finals series by defeating Geelong in the Qualifying Final and Port Adelaide in a nail-biting Preliminary Final.

But the side saved their best for last, dismantling Sydney with ferocious pressure and pin-point accuracy of disposal by hand and foot. Hawthorn's intensity proved too much for the Swans as Clarkson's team ran away with a stunning 63-point victory to claim the Club's twelfth premiership.

Skipper Luke Hodge was a deserving winner of the Norm Smith Medal, the second of his career, after an inspiring performance that saw him pick up 35 disposals, take 12 marks and kick two goals in the victory.
