When: Sat 18 Jan, 10:00am - 2:00pm

Venue: Ward

Additional Info: All Ages

Come and have a go at trout fishing at one of the region's best fishing destinations: Lake Argyle. Be in to win some great prizes, including the chance to catch some lucky tagged trout which could net you a $500 Henderson's voucher plus other great prizes!

There will be fishing guides there to help you set up your fishing gear and teach you all you need to catch fish. If you have your own fishing gear - that's great - bring it along with you, otherwise there will be limited gear available for you to use. Guides will teach you whatever you want about trout fishing: spin fishing/fly fishing/soft baits/bubble and fly techniques.

Fish & Game will release a tanker load of fish during the day which you'll be able to see - including some monster trout over 10 pounds!

There will be a BBQ provided and even a fish smoker on hand if you're lucky enough to catch a trout and feel like fresh smoked trout - a real delicacy!

No licence for the day required: Fish & Game will provide you with an educational permit so you can fish for free on the day.

Prior registration appreciated: email nelsonmarlborough@fishandgame.org.nz; or phone (03) 544 6382

In the event of bad weather the reserve day will be the following Saturday (25 January). Postponement will be notified by email (if registered) or Nelson Marlborough Fish & Game Facebook page.

The event is brought to you by Nelson Marlborough Fish & Game, Department of Conservation and Henderson's Ltd.
