I can't quite believe this but I picked up a small flake of gold while fishing on the Upper Yarra River today.  Shocked  It was partly wedged in a crack/clay on a small rock outcrop, and yes, it is definitely gold. No photos as my phone is actually on of those that makes phone calls -will try for the photo tomorrow. I've caught fish before while fossicking, but never the reverse  Very Happy
