Grab your rod and help get rid of some vermin

THIS weekend the Coraki Fishing Club will hold its 11th annual Vermin Classic.

This event aims to eradicate pest carp from our waterways, with last year's figures - 224 fish caught, a total weight of 240kg - organisers hope to better that tally this year.

The classic is open to all who wish to fish.

Registration is at the Coraki Hotel 4.30-6pm Friday, and 7-9am Saturday.

Weigh-in will be held from 2-5pm Saturday and again on Sunday, from 11am-1pm.

This is followed by a free barbecue lunch, prize presentation and raffle draw.

Then stay on for some great music with the afternoon jam session.

Camping is available at the Coraki Caravan Park.

For further information, phone 0411 230 066.
