Let's talk Bass

Who doesn't love talking fishing, and in this corner of the world it's all about the Australian Bass.

Run over two nights at the Marlo and Bairnsdale RSL Angling Clubs respectively, these free events are a great opportunity to learn about the right techniques to catch a Bass - where, when and how - and better understand the value of river health in our region.

Head down and meet:
Kaj “Bushy” Busch
Jarrod Lyon from Athur Rylah Institute
John Douglas from the Victorian Fisheries Authority

Let's Talk Bass will kick off at the Marlo Angling Club on Monday 17th, September at 6.30 with a free family barbeque. 

The Bairnsdale RSL Fishing Club will be your hosts on Tuesday 18th, September kicking off at 6.30pm with a light supper provided. 

Please RSVP directly to the clubs for catering purposes.
