Two large-scale shots of the beach at Frenches Narrows at Cape Conran park, with people fishing into the surf.

The beach at Frenches Narrows, Cape Conran park, Victoria

This beach is huge (I’m not sure whether it’s officially part of Gippsland’s “Ninety Mile Beach”) and there are parts of it you can swim on, but this isn’t one of them; the water was brutally cold this day, the waves nasty-looking, and the locals muttered about sharks.

The idea of fishing out into the surf would never occur to me, but I saw others doing it too. I asked this fellow how he was doing and he said “nothing today”.

[Yes, that’s how they spell the name, Frenches Narrows, no apostrophe or anything.]
