MEM­BERS of the Biggen­den Am­a­teur Fish­ing Club com­bined a week­end of fish­ing with the club’s an­nual meet­ing at Boon­dooma Dam.

The weather was per­fect for fish­ing and it proved to be a very re­ward­ing week­end for many of the mem­bers.

Ju­nior an­gler Jo­hanna Kelly snagged a 41cm golden perch.

And she had the big­gest smile out of ev­ery­one!

The club had a busy and pro­duc­tive year, in both fish­ing and fundrais­ing.

The suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing for the year en­abled the club to do­nate $500 to Rotary Lodge House in Bund­aberg; $200 to Biggen­den Am­a­teur Swim­ming Club and $250 to Paradise Stock­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

The fundrais­ing also helped the club to run and host its An­glers Ed­u­ca­tional Fish­ing Days for Kids in the community each year.

A mon­ster Christ­mas raf­fle will be drawn on De­cem­ber 21 and will be the club’s last fundrais­ing ven­ture for the year.

Tick­ets can be bought at a num­ber of busi­ness houses in Biggen­den.

The Biggen­den Am­a­teur Fish­ing Club thanked the pub­lic and busi­nesses for their gen­er­ous sup­port throughout the year.
