Our regional groups have information trailers that house our resources along with a number of fishing rods and tackle. If you are holding a community event and you would like to provide some information or interactive activities regarding sustainable recreational fishing, make sure you contact us to discuss how we might be able to support your event.
Below are examples of various community activities we can provide, but of course contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can customise your Fishcare experience!
Fishcare can help raise awareness of various sustainable fishing methods by either having a stall, tabling or even bringing our Educational Trailer to provide resources and educate the public about rules and regulations currently in Victoria. We will bring as much information which is relevant to your event. Whether this be about Fishing rules awareness, volunteering opportunities or children’s education Items that we can bring to help the community to fish legally and sustainably include, but are not limited to; current Fisheries Rules and Regulations books, “Weigh your Catch” rulers for saltwater, freshwater species and Kids activity books.
Dry casting clinics for kids and adults to try their luck and learn how to cast a rod (without the risk of getting a hook to the face!). This way it doesn’t impact on any set fishing areas if run in conjunction with an independent fishing competition but uses up any open areas at an event for more activities. Our rods have casting plugs on them so it simulates the weight of having a hook and sinker on there without chance of hurting anyone! We can add an extra element of fun by getting participants to cast the rod into the hula hoop and catch plastic fish.
Come & Try Fishing
We can run multiple set fishing clinics throughout the day where people sign up to learn about Rules and Regulations, how to measure their catch and of course, learn how to fish! We provide all the equipment, all the bait and all the expertise. We run “Come & Try Fishing” clinics around the state during the school holidays, keep up to date with where we are running things events by visiting either our website event calendar or on our Facebook Page.
