Young anglers between the ages of 14 to 18 years of age will be able to apply and join the PFIGA for free; once their applications are successful, junior anglers will have the opportunity to be mentored by Australia’s leading fishing guides who have survived in business because of their superior knowledge and skills that has been demonstrated to and respected by their clients.

PFIGA will also be able to offer these young anglers nationally accredited training in various competencies of recreational fishing – a huge advantage when applying for employment within the industry.

If you know of any youngster between the age of 14 and 18 years old that may be interested in becoming a PFIGA junior member, contact PFIGA recruitment officer Darryl Head by e-mail or Steve Williamson at:
