Junior Angler Education Clinic

A must-do for all Junior Anglers!

The Junior Angler Education Clinic was first launched by Palmerston Game Fishing Club in 2004. It aims to give 100 juniors between the ages of 8 to 15, an introduction to the sport and recreational activity that is angling!

In previous years the clinic introduced the children to the skills of casting and retrieving a lure. In an endeavour to improve the clinic in 2011 this was taken a step further by introducing a trip to a Humpty Doo Barra Farm at Adelaide River.

In 2017, the Kids clinic will again aim to build on the success of previous years events. The children will be split into 2 groups and each group will enjoy a session at the PGFC clubrooms where they will see presentations from various community groups, such as Dept. Primary Industry and Resources, Parks and Wildlife and Marine Safety among others and participate in hands on learning activities such as knot tying and flare safety demonstrations. The other half of the day will be spent at Humpty Doo Barra Farm, where the children will have the opportunity to hopefully catch a Barra and be shown the correct procedure for handling a captured fish.

Please note: Parent/guardian supervision is required on the day but are reminded that the day is held for the children, and are asked to refrain from fishing themselves whilst at the Barra Farm.
