FIND THE WORDS
This is a theme puzzle with the subject stated below. Find the listed words
in the grid. (They may run in any direction but always in a straight line.
Some letters are used more than once.) Ring each word as you find it and
when you have completed the puzzle, there will be 12 letters left over. They
spell out the alternative theme of the puzzle.

8 Which sportsperson said: "I'm really exciting, I smile a lot, I win a lot and I'm
9 What is an "exploded view"?
10 Whose debut album was called "Charcoal Lane"?
The letters in each vertical column go into the squares directly below them,
but not necessarily in the order they appear. A black square indicates the end
of a word. When you have placed all the letters in their correct squares, you
will be able to read a popular quotation.

bottom. Your solution may differ from ours.

Trout return after big chill
LAST year dished up some crazy
weather and it hasn't taken long for
2012 to do likewise.
Can you believe it was snowing last
week in the alps -- in the middle of an
The big chill would have confused
the trout in the mountain lakes, but
they should be returning to their
typical summer feeding pattern now of
holding deep during the day and
cruising the margins at dawn and dusk.
Summer trolling for trout can be
very productive as fish sit at a
consistent level, making them easy
targets for anglers using downriggers
and lead-core line.
Before the mid-summer freeze,
Steve Williamson at Jindabyne report-
ed excellent catches of rainbows,
browns and Atlantic salmon on Tas-
manian Devils fished anywhere

Surface trolling is working well on

Bait-fishing from the shoreline
continues to be a reliable method. Try
powerbait for the rainbows and scrub
worms for the large browns. Best areas
are Waste Point, The Claypits, Hatch-
ery Bay, the Town Centre and the
Canberra angler Danny Spelic has
been selected in the Australian Fly
Fishing Team to represent Australia at
the 2012 Commonwealth Fly Fishing
Championships from February 15 to
18 in Tasmania.
The Commonwealth Champion-
ships will be contested by 16 teams
from 12 countries on the rivers and
lakes in Tasmania's central highlands.
On the coast, hooking a kingfish or
two has been relatively easy -- but
wrestling them from the jaws of
members of the local seal population
has been a lot harder.
The area around Montague Island is
thick with kings to 90cm but anglers
report losing plenty of fish to the seals.
Live yellowtail and squid are the
keys to getting a hook-up, but you'll
need a dose of old fashioned good luck
to get them to the boat.

support women, and men, with breast
cancer in the Canberra region."
