Learn how to cast off, watch your float and identify when and how to strike.
Things to remember:
- As soon as the float goes under you should strike. Not too soft, but not too hard either.
- If you catch a big fish, you may need to use a landing net to bring it in.
- Once caught, fish should be unhooked and either returned directly back to the water or placed safely in a keepnet.
Remember: Stay safe! It’s safer to fish as part of a group and children must always have parental permission.
Before you go fishing you need a Rod Licence if you are 12 years of age or older and permission from the fishery owner/angling club.
