Give fishing a try

October 11, 2017

Young fishermen Layne Warde, Ace Warde, Zac Warde and Flynn Warde with Kyabram Anglers Club president Geoff Cronyn before last year's fishing day.

IT’S time to lure in the kids for a day of fishing fun as part of national Gone Fishing Day.

For an entire day, recreational fishing licences will not be required anywhere in Victoria, with fishing events held across the state – even right here in Kyabram.

The Kyabram Anglers Club is offering a free fishing day for children on Sunday.

Club president Geoff Cronyn said the event was an excellent opportunity for kids to give fishing a go.

“We had a massive crowd attend last year – 120 kids and more than 200 people all up,” he said.

“The kids just loved it.”

The age range for kids is zero to 16, and they must all register at the start of the day.

Every participant will receive a prize, with two kayaks up for grabs.

Snacks and drinks will be provided as well as a free barbecue.

The event will be held at Goulburn Murray Water channel, McEwen, between Everard and Brose Rd, Kyabram, between 9am and midday.
