Day for kids to learn to fish

THE annual Queensland Government and Sunfish “Take a Kid Fishing” morning is on again in Warwick this year on Sunday at Connolly Dam, south of Warwick, from 8am onwards.

This idea of this event is to get children interested in the sport of fishing with the emphasis on a family outing.

Local sporting goods retailer, Warwick Outdoors and Sports, in Palmerin Street, is the co-ordinators of the event and children must be registered with them if they are attending.

Sunfish provides free sample bags for each child and giveaways, Woolworths is providing chips and Supa IGA is providing drinks.

Warwick RSL has generously again donated meat for the free sausage sizzle lunch. Sunfish is also donating $200 towards the prize list.

The Commonwealth Bank is providing $50 towards the fishing tackle giveaway list, plus some money boxes for the children. A.G. Boating Licensing has donated $200 to be spent on fishing gear as giveaways and Big W is also donating fishing gear for the prize list.

Children must bring their own fishing line or rod to use in the event and all prize winners will be drawn at random from the registered children.

Warwick District Recreational Fish Stocking Association members are providing free bait for this promotional event and the manpower to run it.

Take A Kid Fishing is being held earlier this year before the cold weather sets in.
