Inaugural NSW Go Fishing day a success

NSW Fisheries held its inaugural Go Fishing NSW day last Sunday. The event was staged at various coastal and inland locations across the state.

Some of the activities included “try fishing” sessions, casting lessons, seafood tasting and kid’s “goodie” bags to take home.

The Fishing World team attended the Sydney site held at Kurnell on the Southern side of Botany Bay. The weather was perfect and plenty of fun was had by all. There was a strong family turnout and plenty of kids were eager to learn about fishing and participate in the activities.

As part of the event, the Australian Fishing Trade Association (AFTA), organised a bream tournament and invited politicians, senior government figures and members of the fishing media to participate. The aim of the competition was to give non-tournament anglers, and non-anglers alike, a taste of what it’s like to fish a bream tournament on board the high speed tournament boats.

The day provided an opportunity for politicians and government decision makers to experience rec fishing and rub shoulders with tournament fishers and media.

Fishing World shared a boat with NSW Member of the Legislative Council The Hon. Paul GREEN, MLC. With rec fishing in NSW facing a number of challenges, the opportunity to informally discuss these issues with a member of the NSW Upper House was time well spent. And as a bonus we caught a few stonker bream!

The day is set to become a permanent fixture on the NSW Fisheries calender.
