AAT completes a very successful Junior Anglers Day


The state wide Junior Angling Day recently conducted by Anglers Alliance Tasmania proved to be a resounding success. Held on 11 October at venues in Ulverstone, Latrobe, Launceston and Bushy Park, the event attracted strong interest from children accompanied by parents and/or relatives. Great numbers were reported from all venues with approximately 450 junior anglers participating. Approximately 250 fish were caught which meant that about half of the junior anglers caught a fish.Anglers Alliance Vice Chair and organiser Terry Byard said that the success of the day was largely due to the great support provided by the local angling groups who managed and controlled each venue. AAT will undertake a review of the day and in due course decide if the event will be repeated as a state wide event in 2016.
