A new fishing club has formed in Corio, offering a family-friendly environment for all anglers.
Corio Bay Anglers Club meets fortnightly, on Wednesdays from 6pm-7pm, at Cloverdale Community Centre. The club already has 30 members involved in a variety of activities.
President Mick Conway said the club is for all-weather and all sorts of fishing and will host 12 to 14 fishing competitions each year. They also have plans to clean-up around the bay, including North Shore and St Helens beaches.
“Our members also share their knowledge, so it’s a good place for young anglers to come and get support and advice,” Mick said. “We encourage families to come along to our social events, which include our weigh-ins and barbecues at Moorpanyal Park.”
Mick said young anglers can learn from older members and can also access equipment for a day if they want to try fishing.
