Anglers Alliance Tasmania is co-ordinating a free Statewide Junior Anglers Day on Sunday 30th October 2016 , giving anglers 17 years of age and under a good chance to catch trout at a number of venues across the state stocked by the Inland Fisheries Service.

The day will be a great opportunity for children who are interested in fishing but don’t necessarily come from a fishing family, to come along and receive some guidance from experienced anglers.

Bait and some fishing gear will be provided along with giveaways and soft drinks. All parents need to do is to bring the kids along on Sunday 30th October between 10am and 3pm to one of the following venues :
