Famous Fishing Spots – Pot Hole & Orange Rocks

Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour

“You have left your footprints, not only in the sand, but also in the sea”. Thus reads an extract from the book The Sonny Side of Life written by Hazel Lodetti, in honour of her late father, South Coast legend, ‘Sonny’ Evans, who was born in South Africa in 1910. These sentiments were expressed by the Acting Mayor of Shelly Beach on the occasion of Sonny’s 80th birthday bash held at Shelly Beach Ski-Boat Clubhouse back in 1990. Never were truer words uttered in recognition of a stalwart pioneer, a son of the South Coast, in fact, our very own ‘old man of the sea’, to whom the region owes so much.
