Details: Phil and some of the BSAC crew were going up to Lake Eildon for a bit of fresh water diving and i was kindly invited to join them. After an interesting tour of the fish farm by Hui we went to the boat ramp and kitted up. The dive was to take place just off the boat ramp, and towards the dam wall. It was characterised by a flooded valley wall with scatterings of old flooded pine trees that grew out of the bank. The vis was much better than i expected and the eriee green glow mixed with the dead calm water made it a really different dive. Not much fishlife, but the night dive planned for latter in the evening was promised to deliver more of the native and stocked fish that occupied the lake.

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm , SS200 Strobes
