Secret fishing spots shared

IT was the warmth and the fish that enticed Peter Boston to move to Yamba 12 years ago.

“It's paradise and I love the climate,” Peter said.

“I came from Armidale so that's probably why I like it so much here.

“I froze up there.”

This week Peter had family friend Peter (Jnr) Drewett of Brisbane visiting for Easter so he took him to a few secret fishing spots around the Valley.

But when the Daily Examiner caught up with them fishing the incoming tide at the Shallow Channel, sadly only the catfish were biting.

Peter Jnr blamed it on his presence, claiming he always had bad luck when it came to fishing.

“I don't catch a lot so I don't take a lot home,” Peter Jnr said.

“But it's a good way to get out and relax.”

Knowing he had the rest of his life to catch fish on the Clarence Peter Snr. didn't mind either.

“We're still having fun and that's the main thing,” he said.
