Goulburn: Oral History of Wally Cubbin and Ern Holloway


An interview in three parts.

Wally Cubbin and Ern Holloway are both fishers who reside in Nagambie, Victoria. Wally has been living in the area for more than 35 years, while Ern has lived in the area his entire life.

In the interview, Wally and Ern share their personal experiences of fishing from their younger years, to their adult lives where their fishing slowed down, to the present where more free time allows them to be more involved.

Wally, who is the Secretary of the Goulburn Valley Association of Angling Clubs and a member of the local Angling Club, addresses a number of topics including an audit on Goulburn Valley Water, poor management of the river, restocking initiatives (fingerlings), weirs and the changes in the fish population.
