VICTORIANS are being encouraged to take their mums fishing at Albert Park Lake this Mother’s Day.
Free fishing clinics, casting competitions and knot tying demonstrations will be available at the Albert Park Lake event.
The free event builds on the VFA’s Women in Recreational Fishing network, a Facebook group with more than 1,000 female members that was created to give women a support network and a place to ask fishing questions.
VFA ambassador and AFLW star Chloe Molloy will bring her mum along on the day and fitness guru, Nike trainer and yoga instructor Stefanie Turner will run a free morning yoga session and a fishingthemed meditation session.
Trout will be stocked on the day to increase everyone’s chance of catching a fish.
“This is all part of our plan to get more people fishing, more often, including mums,” said Member for Albert Park Martin Foley
The event will run from 9 am to 1 pm on May 12 near The Point on Aquatic Drive.
