The Nambucca Valley on Instagram | photos

THEY say that having a flick offshore kills the experience of fishing the river, but local gun Jai Miller would never buy into that.

Always keen to chase bass and with an appreciation of all the fishing opportunities, Jai was none the less buzzing about this great mackeral catch out on the Big Blue.

That's this week's cover shot of your photos shared on Instagram, and while we normally scatter the photos up, this time we have kept a sequence of Valla's Clare Warner's escapade in cooking a banana flower.

Lots of work - and determination onpoint.

Still on gastronomy, suss the monster snitty at the Servies, and how cool is the school holiday hair cut posted by Donna Barns.
