Gone Fishing NSW Day

Thank you to everyone who supported our 2020 virtual Gone Fishing Day!

If you missed it, DPI teamed up with fishing legends Steve “Starlo” Starling and Al McGlashan to produce a handy “how-to” video to help everyone, including beginners, learn all about fishing, as well as activities for the keen angler.

Starlo and Al provided some expert tips and advice for catching golden perch and other native species in freshwater dams and rivers as well as bream and flathead on the coast. Check out the video below for info on rigs, baits and techniques to improve your chances on the water!

Planning is already underway for Gone Fishing Day in 2021. Stay tuned for more info! Tight lines!
