First Trick: "Shadow Board" Tool Organizing
Here's Ross Griffith, Saul's dad in his garage in Sydney. If you organize your tools this way your kids will turn out just as well as Saul did.
By drawing outline "shadows" around each tool, you can tell instantly where each tool is supposed to go, and which tools are missing. This trick isn't unique to Australia, but if you look carefully you'll see that everything is exactly backwards, because it's in the southern hemisphere :).
Step 1: Catch Sandworms for Bait
This Aussie gent is catching them for bait at Hawks Nest, New South Wales.
He's about halfway between the high and low marks of the waves. The area of sand that's being actively washed by the waves now, but is fully exposed between the waves.
He's got a mesh bag of chicken giblets or fish parts in his left hand and is holding it against the sand bottom. In his right hand is the tool for grabbing the worms. Either a trowel with a sieve attached or a gripper sort of like a large pair of needlenose pliers. I saw people using both types of objects. If you're quick I think you can use your bare hands, but the sandworms are pretty scary looking and active.
I would have gotten better pictures, but I asked him "Ok if I take some pictures?" and he said "Not at all", which means "go right ahead", but I thought he meant the opposite.
