Fishin' Trip to the Spit

Farewell Spit, as a fisherman's paradise, has received considerable publicity of late. And no wonder! We' re told the snapper sit outside and just beg to be caught! At least that's what we' re told. But good fishing or no, it's a wonderful place to visit if you' re up that way. Only way in is by four-wheel drive vehicle when the tides are right. To prove our point, Michael and Jerome Cooper display a fine example of the fish thereabouts (at top), while others (above) work hard at it. At top left is the spit light-house and at left. tyre marks in the sand are quickly obliterated by wind-driven sand. (Pix by Peter Cooper).
