Kids fishing clinic at NSGFC
THE Narooma Sport and Game Fishing Club hosted 10 kids for a day last week to teaching them the fundamentals of fishing.
They were shown how to tie hooks and rigs, how to cast, how to find bait, how to bait hooks, how to catch fish and also how to release fish.
They then proceeded to the sand flats and pumped Nippers. Although the tide was still quit high the kids manage to capture quit a few nippers.
The kids had a great time and then enjoyed an excellent lunch of hamburgers, sausages and salads prepared by Christine and Terry, the delicious hamburger patties were created by our club president Mick.
After Lunch it was time for some casting practice at Taylor’s Boat Ramp and then it was time to fish. First fish landed was a toadfish which was promptly returned to the depth.
Finally a nice bream was landed by a male member of the group followed by a luderick, and two more bream captured by the female participants. At the end of the day the tally was Girls 3 and Boys 1.
All of the fish were returned to the water although one unfortunately turned up its fins and was filleted for Thursday’s breakfast.
The afternoon finished with ice cream and chocolate syrup, all participants received a fishing rod and Reel, as well as a tackle box stocked with goodies,
Club members who attended both to teach and look after the kids all expressed how terrifically the kids performed. They were courteous well-mannered and expressed their enjoyment of the clinic.
A great bunch of future anglers!
Thanks to all members who assisted with the clinic.
The event is supported by the NSW Department of Primary Industries.

Bermagui CC Social Anglers
ONCE again our monthly three-day fishing comp and social barbecue at the Bermi Club offered various stories and fish tales, bringing members together.
Attracting visitors, welcome Ronda and Harrison - great to have you aboard!
Seas have not been so inviting for competing over Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning in the off shore event, but undeterred, our weigh master, Ian Reid, came in with the heaviest mixed bag for the prize.
Alas, the onshore fishos were not so lucky – so better luck next month –May 9-11.
Of course, there’s the annual variety weigh in, so go angling.
Our raffle once again, found a home with member Cyril le Rossignol.
Congratulations and from President Fran Vercoe: “Thank you all for a great get together”.
A reminder for all – the Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, June 15.
