October 2016 Fishing Club Report

Posted on Aug 15, 2016


  What a busy and fruitful month October has been. The month started with the National Fishing Day which attracted a larger than expected number of registrants, both adults and children alike. There were lots of prizes won, the attendees were taught basic fishing techniques, knot tying. There was casting competitions, jumping castles, food and even fairy floss. It was funded by the government and is to be become an annual event. Next was the goblet weekend and the goblet fish was trout. An "away" weekend was organised in the wonderful Crackenback resort with many members attending. It was a weekend of contrasts, snowing heavily one minute and sunshine the next. Warm clothes were the go and trout were actually caught. It wasn't as easy to catch a trout as everyone hoped any member members were not successfully walking away with a trout score but the compensation was the camaraderie, food, drinks and exercise. For those who didn't travel to Crackenback, a fishing competition was also held in Tuross which had a handful of fish recorded and a much smaller number of people attending the Barbecue. Overall, the goblet fish (a trout) was caught and the goblet winner was Tim Kovacks who managed to edge out John Suthern with a centimetre longer fish than John's.14642293_10211597585840855_5264171369179295140_n 14670803_10211597587560898_6875403964995903999_n 14691171_10154762830659284_6185395353420721884_o 14700918_10154762840344284_4843169051222886440_o 14705638_10211597581640750_6807735348525737325_n 14705874_10155361829759392_6047441778596830268_n 14714892_10154762830009284_9205685860302128593_o               14721746_10154762828124284_480752452833517892_n                     On another note - The NSW Minister for Lands and Water, Niall Blair MLC has recognised Tuross as a centre of excellence for trophy fish and the Department of Primary Industries has produced a colourful booklet promoting Tuross as a "hot spot" Sample copies of this booklet have arrive and shortly copies will be made freely available.
