Fishing Off One Mile Jetty in Carnarvon, Western Australia

I recently spent a couple of days up in the banana capital of Carnarvon, located in the Gasgoyne Pilbara region of Western Australia. I was staying in this coastal town to get in touch with my inner Bear Grylls and to get involved in a bit of fishing which somewhere along the line of growing up, I had forgot to embrace this primal hunter instinct in me. So joined by my grandfather and my partner in crime Niki, we ventured out to Babbage island before sunrise to cast a line. This photo was taken out to sea at the end of the mile long jetty looking back as the rustic town of Carnarvon. I found it fascinating to watch the colours of the sky change as the sun rose up to reflect the scorched earth that make this part of the world so harsh. Carnarvon has plenty to offer if you’re travelling north and is approximately twelve hours driving from Perth, making it a great stop over on your way to Exmouth and Ningaloo. By the way, in case you wanted to know how many fish Niki caught? A nice half dozen. Want to know how many I caught in my Bear Grylls Action Man stance? Zero….I’ve never lived it down!
