Stand­ing in a stream near vil­lage

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - Sireli Ravairoro

I was born in Fiji and have lived in Cairns for the past six years.

Down there I fish a bit off the jet­ties and the sands, catch­ing rays mainly, and puffers. They’re scary.

I fish up in Port now and then.

I think the fish I re­mem­ber best was one I caught last year, back in the vil­lage in Fiji. It’s on the main is­land and a long way from the coast.

There are a lot of creeks and streams in the flat­lands and we have wa­ter all around.

I was stand­ing in a river and caught this sil­ver coloured fish, I don’t know its name.

It wasn’t huge but it was the best fish I’ve ever caught. That was in fresh­wa­ter of course.

There’s lots of fish in that river. The vil­lage eat a lot of fish. There are plenty of eels too.

I’ve been fish­ing since I was lit­tle but my brother fishes a lot more than I do. He’s re­ally good.
