Seymour’s Goulburn Park will next month host a free introductory clinic to give newcomers a chance to try recreational fishing.

The Victorian Fisheries Authority, VFA, will run VicFishKids and Fishing For All clinics targeted at people who are looking at getting into fishing for the first time, with filleting and cooking demonstrations, as well as general tips presented at each event.

The clinics at Seymour, Lilydale, Shepparton and Bendigo are part of the State Government’s Go Fishing Victoria plan, aimed at encouraging more people to go fishing more often.

Minister for Fishing and Boating Sonya Kilkenny said the clinics were a good opportunity for people to take up a new hobby.

“These free introductory fishing clinics are a terrific way to help children give fishing a go for the first time in a safe and educational environment with help from experts,” she said.

“Recreational fishing provides the perfect opportunities for people to get outside and spend time with friends and family.”

VicFishKids events are designed for children who are keen to learn the basics of fishing in a safe and supportive environment with help from experts.

Fishing clubs will also help to teach children about knots, casting, bait selection and what to do when they first catch a fish. Catchable-sized rainbow trout from VFA’s Snobs Creek hatchery will be stocked at the locations prior to the event.

Fishing For All clinics are open to people of all ages and abilities and are designed to get newcomers introduced to fishing.

VicFishKids will run from 10am to 4pm on September 18 at Seymour’s Goulburn Park,

Children who pre-register will receive a free fishing rod to take home, with 120 up for grabs at each event.
