We fish - We care
The other day I was
driving past the Tavern and I saw the FishCare guys running their
program with heaps of interest going on. These guys are
volunteers and take their fishing education duties seriously.
These four blokes have in excess of 200 years of combined
fishing experience to share with the up and coming fisher men and women
Their very well kitted out trailer was full of goodies for people to
take away to read,
or to borrow for a lesson or two during the morning.
The FishCare people work from Warrnambool in the west, Ballarat in the
north and to Mallacoota in the east.
Lake Tyers Beach must
seem like just an afternoon out!!!
Thanks guys from Lake Tyers Beach, great to catch up!!!
These people are involved in
- Learn to Fish Clinics
- School holiday programs (like what I saw today)
- Primary School Programs
- 'Catch-a-Carp' events
- Catch and Release competitions
- Community Forums and Workshops
- Volunteer Training and Field Trips
