FATHER and son Tony and Jayden Lilley of Bulahdelah Fishing Club have taken out first in their age categories at the NSW Casting Titles at Tuncurry.
Jayden Lilley, aged 14 is a budding young caster who scored second place in last year's National Casting Titles.
Mr Lilley said no one in the juniors at the state championships came close to his son's 123 metre throw.
"87 metres was the closest throw to his at state," he said.
Mr Lilley said his son got "a bit bored" with the competition and that he was looking forward to a bit more of a challenge at the national championships.
"There was no one in his league to compete with," he said.
Mr Lilley said he only competed in the competition to "have a bit of fun" with his "young fella". The first place positioning certainly was not part of his plan, in fact he said it was a bit of a fluke.
"There was a guy who could throw 200 metres but he had one bad throw," he said.
His first place position was scored with a largest throw of 147 metres.
A true family affair, My Lilley's daughter Leteisha also participated in the casting titles where she managed a 50 metre throw.
The casting titles take place on an open field and then surveyors measure the distance of the casting.
Another section of the casting titles requires participants to hit a target to test for accuracy.
Mr Lilley said his whole family including his wife Therese had been asked to compete in the Australian Casting Titles in Queensland in August next year.
