When the weather starts to get some consistency, like the big high that is settling over Victoria, it's time to tell the kids to stick the electronic devises up the proverbial, and GET OUTSIDE!!!!! Some much to do when the weather is good. The Inverloch Jetty is proving very productive at all tides with famillies catching a variety of species including flathead, mullet. salmon, luderick, leather jacket and the odd trevally.
Anthony Collins, teacher at Yinnar Primary emailed us this week. As part of their reading program, the Grade 3/4 are reading our Rod Bending book...."A Day in the Boat". Anthony said the kids have enjoyed the story and are using the audio disc for class participation. They also have many great fishing adventures of the own to tell. Thanks Anthony for the feedback and I hope there continues to be many tall stories with big tails!
Long weekends and school holidays during Spring and Summer are the times to get outdoors with the kids and have adventures.
Young Baxter from Inverloch had an awesome time fishing the inlet beaches of Anderson Inlet. But it wasn't just bait fishing, Baxter has mastered casting and retieving lures. Check out Baxter's casting style.
It was great fun today to be invited to the Inverloch Library to be part of their regular Wednesday Story Time and National Simultaneous Story Time. I had the opportunity to read my story ..."We Caught a Fish"...then at 11.00am, I read the awesome Nick Bland story.."The Wrong Book"...which was being read to pre-schoolers at the same time in all the Libraries all around Australia.
Rod Bending's conducted another Schools Fishing Program this week. A strong easterly week tested the kids casting ability and they all passed with flying colors. Keeping the lines tight was the most difficult aspect in the conditions. But when the kids did, they could feel the bites and a couple of flathead and a small salmon were landed. Great fun was had by all.
David from Rod Bending's World is conducting a four week fishing program ( 2 hours per week) for primary school kids at the Koonwarra Village School. 4 Week Fishing Program For the Koonwarra Village School. Commencing Wednesday 10th October 2012
