Fish­ing club casts first net

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

THE first of the monthly meet­ings for the Port Dou­glas and District Fish­ing Club gave mem­bers an in­sight into hook­ing up in the wet sea­son.

Held the last Tues­day of Novem­ber, Keith Gra­ham from Bran­ford’s Tackle Shop, Clifton Beach, was the guest speaker.

Or­gan­iser of the fish­ing club and Com­bined Club man­ager Kym Row­ley said there was a great re­sponse from the mem­bers.

“Keith Gra­ham gave a talk on fish­ing the wet sea­son-in­shore and off­shore, this was about what species to tar­get and what to use,” he said.

“He also gave an up­date on some of the lat­est equip­ment and mem­bers who at­tended found it very in­ter­est­ing, re­ward­ing and can­not wait to put it into prac­tice.”

The De­cem­ber meet­ing will be post­poned un­til the be­gin­ning of Jan­uary so it does not clash with peo­ple go­ing away for Christ­mas and New Year’s.

“We are do­ing two in Jan­uary, one on the third which will be with the coast­guard and DPI in re­gards to boat safety and pro­tect­ing our marine environment,” Row­ley said.

“The other one will be on Jan­uary 31 and will be Keith Gra­ham again in re­gards to set­ting up tackle boxes and rig­ging your lines.

“Come down and see what it’s like, ev­ery­one is wel­come and if they want to join, be­come mem­bers of the com­bined club.

“The fish­ing club is al­ways look­ing for more mem­bers and ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend our meet­ing.”
