Dr Dale McNeil (Picture by David Thorpe) thought he was going to be a footballer and that didn’t pan out. Then he got keen on a girl who was doing Zoology so he enrolled too. Then he developed an acute fear of having to leave university which lead him to undertake a drawn out nine year post-graduate epic during which he ruined his liver, lost his hearing playing too much rock’n’roll and grew his hair really big. Now, he has gotten fat, had children, cut his hair and settled down with the Murray Local Land Services in Deniliquin, NSW where he is the Strategic Planner. In between all of this he looked into fish quite a bit. He wishes he could talk all day about swamp yabbies and play banjo with people. Maybe you do to?
