Description

"Big Emby Lake - near (1/2 hr hike) our camp at Dobodura. We fished there. Had a raft and later - re-cycled inflated life rafts from aircraft" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Three Jovial Fishermen. Left to right: Dick Baxter, Bob Casey, Mitch Fadal. Often, Hill and his buddies got up early, walked two miles of steep trail to reach Big Embi Lake. Here, they hold up their catch - probably a mix of native gudgeon and rainbowfish." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
