Cobram local makes a rare find at local fishing spot and public called on to find buried treasure.ROBERT HENSON March 6, 2014 4:15am
A fisherman all his life, Roman Herezo is not about to become a treasure hunter.
The Cobram local dropped a line at Wilson’s pump, near Wilson’s Beach, about 8.30
Picking it up from the water’s edge, Mr Herezo noticed a message inside the bottle.
After half an hour attempting to extract the tightly inserted scroll, he managed to remove the message.
It includes instructions to ‘‘a wonderful treasure’’ hidden in Horseshoe Lagoon. The tall tale to riches involves a Chinese goldseeker, a buried blue key, a heavily guarded door and ‘‘some potatoes’’.
Mr Herezo said his pirate-looking eye patch, acquired after he took a nail through his eye working as a carpenter, might, to some, make him a prime candidate for the treasure hunt.
But he said would leave it open to the public.
‘‘Let them go and look for it,’’ he said. ‘‘If someone else can find it, instead of me, they can have it.’’
