Sun­downer prepa­ra­tions

Broome Advertiser - - Fishing - Sara Hen­nessy

In times like these when the weather stops us from throw­ing a line in safely, I could be re­ally pre­ten­tious and preach about how this is the ideal time to clean out the tackle bag and get your gear ready for when you can once again hit the wa­ter.

While this is, of course, a most awe­some sug­ges­tion, the re­al­ity is most of us have been sit­ting on the couch watch­ing re-runs of iFish or en­joy­ing some of the Win­ter Olympics ac­tion.

That is un­less you are on the Mary Is­land Fish­ing Club com­mit­tee, who are busy get­ting ready for the club’s first event for this year, a sun­downer on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 24, with mud crab rac­ing and the of­fi­cial open­ing and pre­sen­ta­tion of our club rede­vel­op­ment to the com­mu­nity of Derby.

There has been a huge amount of work go into this club up­grade and we en­cour­age our Derby com­mu­nity to come and have a look and en­joy a so­cial af­ter­noon. Sara Hen­nessy is the pres­i­dent of the Mary Is­land Fish­ing Club in Derby.

The Mary Is­land Fish­ing Club sun­downer will hold mud crab races, as filmed by the Our Town crew back in Au­gust last year.
