"One day I catch two great big salmon. When I went home ... I cook one for myself. And I gave one to my Aunty and Uncle ... and they gave me a cart to drive down the beach.

And I went fishing with my Uncle big boat and I catch two fat barrundi in the creek and I go to catch big mangrove jack ... ohhhh yum!" -Andrew Brown, 2002
