ONE of the great pleasures on a Sunday afternoon is to grab the kids, grab the fishing rods and relax on the banks of the river.

That's what hundreds of people from around the Tweed do, and that's what Mark James did yesterday; fishing off the jetty in the Terranora inlet.

"I live just down the road," Mr James said.

"It's a nice place to bring the kids to."

Some of the more popular fish caught in the river are bream, flathead and whiting and one of the best fish to catch is the elusive mango jack, but that will take a lot more experience and effort.

"It's fun to go out and fish," Isaac Moloney said

But fishing can have its dangers, so it best to educate the kids, he said.

"Keep the hooks away from people's head to be safe,"  Isaac said.

Not to be left out of this story the youngest member, Mason Moloney.

 "I have caught a flathead.  It was the biggest fish out of everyone."
