Story: Estuaries

Wal and Cooch go floundering

Sand flounders make excellent eating, and can be found in estuaries, where they spend part of their life. In New Zealand flounders are either caught in nets or speared. In this Footrot Flats cartoon strip, Kiwi farm characters Wal and Cooch are using the barefoot method of locating these well-camouflaged fish.
