Fun landing their lure closest to the bucket – kids, come to the next Fishing Clinic on May 22
Rainbow Beach Amateur Anglers ran a Junior Fishing Clinic for local and holidaying children, and the good news is more activities are planned. Our next event will be kicking off at 8am on Saturday May 22 at Inskip Point.
This practical session will focus on how to catch fresh local bait and a few strategies for fishing with soft plastics.
The two-hour holiday clinic was run by Steve Bennett, Junior Mentor, and local fishing guru Drew Gardiner, President of the Club, with a large group of our juniors turning out for a morning of fun fishing activities.
Our budding anglers enjoyed the practical sessions on how to tie fishing knots and participated in a beach fishing education session where they learnt the ins and outs, different species of fish to target and the bait to use to entice fish onto their lines.
The clinic finished on a high with a Casting Competition – the casting accuracy of Libby Bennett (Juniors) and Riley Wheeler (Seniors) earnt them an ALVEY Reel prize pack!
Overall, it was a great morning with an abundance of tips and hints shared and, judging by the smile on the faces, a fun time was had by all.
Thanks to ALVEY Reels and Gardiner Fisheries for sponsorship and a sample bag of fishing goodies for each participant, and Drew Gardiner for sharing his wealth of knowledge with our next generation.
We look forward to seeing our budding young anglers joining with representatives from ALVEY on May 22! Hope to see you there.
