What were your aims for your first year?

Our aim this year was to grow interest around getting people fishing and in the outdoors.

Also to start building up some club fishing equipment available to members to hire and use if they don’t have there own gear and want to give it a go.

To run fishing comps and events aimed at teaching members all the ins and outs so they can get stuck in on there own accord.

To run some social events where you can meeting experienced or new fisher people.

Lastly to promote awareness around catch and release and sustainable fishing for the future.

How did you achieve them?

Was an amazing first year. Blown away by the interest and support of club members finishing off the year with 160 members.

With the generous approval of a grant application we where able to acquire 7 fishing rods plus other equipment necessary to get stuck into catching fish, enabling lots of our members to come out and catch there first fresh water fish.

Had really great turn outs to all of our clubs events in Twizle with 2 lucky members walking away with $100 voucher thanks to the support of fisherman’s loft.

We fantastic turn outs for our social event.
