  No sooner caught than sent home to its mother
by unravelau

We have pretty strict regulations in Australia relative to the type and size of the fish that we may keep having caught them. The other morning and in the space of a minute I guess, this young man started reeling in his catch, agreed to allow me to photograph and with smooth movement brought his catch ashore, and immediately (seeing its size and type), flicked it back to grow a little more.

Equipment: He was fishing off the north wall of the Coffs Harbour Jetty area not far from where a few days before, a small aircraft lost part of its undercarriage on its approach to the airport. Landed that safely too, by the way.

Address: You will be able to fish anywhere around the jetty
Directions: This spot just a few metres east of the yacht club on the north wall of Coffs Harbour Jetty and marina area.
Theme: Fishing Trips
