Goulburn: Oral History of Seymour Anglers


Goulburn: Oral History of Seymour Anglers


Jim Hanley, Don Collihole, Geoff Vernon and Keith Jones are fishers in the local area of Seymour in Victoria. While Geoff is associated with the Seymour Anglers, the others also enjoy fishing and they have all been doing so for more than 20-30 years, along with hunting that they believe complements the sport of fishing.

The interview goes into depth about the types of fish that were present in the past, the increasing turbidity of the Murray River, fishing and the techniques and bait used, the interesting and opportunistic diets of the Murray Cod, and the changing views of fishers from those of over-fishing to current attitudes of conservation in light of the changing laws.


Bardi grubs, 'trout', platypus, turtles, cockatoos, rats, mice.
