There’s fishing with Les Gane on Thursday, September 22 from 4.45pm.
You will have the opportunity to cast lines and learn the correct techniques to snag a fish.
“Les has plenty of experience and local knowledge of the area, your dad will learn tips and skills in casting out a line,” Ms Millet said.
To be sure not to miss out it’s recommended to book to avoid disappointment.
