Grants to help with Go Fishing Day
RECREATIONAL fishing clubs are being urged to apply for grants to help run fishing activities on the second annual Go Fishing Day, to be held on October 16.
“There are currently around 850,000 people who love wetting a line each year in New South Wales and Go Fishing Day provides another opportunity to promote fishing as an enjoyable part of our lifestyle,” Lismore MP Thomas George said.
“Fishing clubs are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $2000 to run fishing activities on Go Fishing Day, such as casting and fishing workshops, information sessions and so on.
“Activities to restore fish habitat on the day are also eligible, such as replanting river and creek banks.”
Go Fishing Day will also coincide with the first National Fishing Day being coordinated by the Australian Fishing Trade Association.
For more information or to get involved, fishing clubs can fill out the application form, which is available at www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fisheries
