Great Initiative For Junior Angler Education Clinic
Earlier in the year Fishing Team Joker helped at 2017 Kids Clinic put on by the Palmerston game fishing club. Kids have the chance to go Barramundi fishing. What a hit it is with not only the kids but the parents to. It was a full on day as you can tell by some of the footage in the short video below. This event is definitely with out a doubt some thing to pride your self on when your involved. 80% of these kid would not normally get to do this or have done this out side of this event. With catching fish they also learn how to respect the fish and the water ways of the top end. Along with that learn a few rules from the local water police, let off some flares and tie some knots.
So even tho the get to catch a mighty Barramundi, they get to experience what it feels like to hold the top end legend. They also gain knowledge, understanding and self achievement of what they have just done. These kids cast and fight the fish them selves. The only help parents and volunteers give is netting the fish.
Spending most of the day at Humpty Doo Barramundi farm its always good to go back to the Palmerston Game Fishing Club for a dinner. Its was a perfect opportunity to talk with the parents and kids together. To find out how they felt about the day and what they learnt.
Next years PGFC Junior Clinic will be looking for new and willing candidates. Its a great day out of the house, where you can have fun and enjoy what the top end known for. Before you go home you can have a drink and a feed at the PGFC club house to unwind before heading home.
