Kids fishout July 2011

The first kids fishout at the Eastern Fish and Game Hatchery was held on a cold frosty day on the 17th July 2011. Nearly 500 young anglers learnt to cast a fly and, for a large number, catch a trout for the first time. Each fish was weighed and each young angler received a certificate to celebrate their achievement.

Below are some of the images captured on this day.
