Nape Nape and Gore Bay. The surf fishing at Nape Nape is not a patch on what it once was some 20 or 30 years ago. Back then big 8 foot sevengill sharks where often taken during the annual surfcasting contest held in January each year. There is a reef approximately 100 metres from shore which runs parallel to the beach from the bluffs at the south end of the beach to the dry Ryton River mouth where the road comes out of the Ryton Valley. I once lost a fishing kite off the end of the Ryton Valley and several hundred metres of long-line thinking I was clear of the reef. Luckily it was a cheap homemade kite!
