The Gone Fishing Gallery is situated next to Church Point Ferry Service at 1858, Pittwater Road.

Opening hours are Saturday and Sundays, 10am to 4pm, and Monday to Friday by appointment.   The opening hours account for its quirky name, because if we’re not there…we are just 5 minutes away by boat, (pulling in the fish….)

 Welcome Home, Davros

The Pink Floyd dalek has come home!
Thank you to Tristan Unwin for his swift action in liberating Davros.  You are to be commended for doing the right thing, Triss, and we are all hoping that someone out there will also do the right thing by the boats vandalised at Carol’s.

This now clears the way for a repeat performance, perhaps some time in the new year.  If there’s enough interest....

Sailing bag
My large yellow and black "Savage Bee 16 ft skiff sailing team" sailing bag went mysteriously missing on Wednesday night after post-Woody point drinks at tennis wharf. I am almost certain I put it on back of golf cart. It would either have been left at Tennis or fallen off on the fire trail up to our place.
If anyone found it, please call me on 0402 060967
