Kids Annual "Gone Fishing" Day
14 October 2018
Over 23 kids including 9 first-timers attended BHCC's "National Kids Gone Fishing Day" at Bobbin Head. The Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation donated sample bags and rods. Scott Leavers ("Araluen") assisted by Bashir Taouk ("Blue Fin") demonstrated the basics of fishing including how to rig the rod and reel, how to tie an improved clinch knot, casting, looking after the rod and reel, and handling fish. BHCC supplied the bread, sausages etc for the free sausage sandwiches which were cooked by Commodore Bruce and committee members. The morning was a huge success and put a big smile on all the children’s faces.
