Kids give fish­ing a go

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

The new trout fish­ing sea­son has opened with fam­i­lies be­ing en­cour­aged to give it a go dur­ing the the school hol­i­days.

Fish & Game com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Don Rood says fish­ing is some­thing the whole fam­ily can en­joy.

“The whole fam­ily can head out to­gether for an out­doors ad­ven­ture,” says Don.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity to get the chil­dren into the out­doors and in­tro­duce them to the joys of fish­ing. With any luck, they will catch their first trout and head home with some fresh wild food for the bar­be­cue or smoker.”

To make it eas­ier for a fam­ily to en­joy trout fish­ing, Fish & Game has a spe­cial fam­ily li­cence avail­able.

“Fish & Game’s fam­ily li­cence not only gives par­ents and their chil­dren the chance to fish to­gether, but also al­lows grand­par­ents to take their grand­chil­dren fish­ing,” Don says.

“As well, chil­dren can get a free fish­ing li­cence, while teenagers up to the age of 18 can get a li­cence for the whole sea­son for $26 — much cheaper than the adult li­cence.”

Li­cences are avail­able at sport­ing stores or on­line through the Fish & Game web­site www.fis­handgame.org.nz

“Buy­ing on­line is straight­for­ward — all peo­ple have to do is choose the li­cence op­tion that’s best for them and a few clicks later they will have bought it,” says Don.

“I urge ev­ery­one to get out there and give trout fish­ing a try.”
