On Sunday 13th January 2019 the Bribie Island Anglers Fishing Club, in conjunction with Sunfish Queensland, held a fun fishing day for the local children aged 7-14 where the children were able to learn the skills of fishing for a sustainable future. Thirty children along with their parents came along for the day and all children were assisted by the members of the Bribie Island Anglers Fishing Club to catch bait on the low tide, learn how to rig their lines and fish the high tide.

Generous donations from the Member for Longman, Susan Lamb, Member for Pumicestone, Simone Wilson, Councillor, Brooke Savage, Division 1 , Moreton Bay Council , Sunfish Queensland and Southern Fish Marine made it possible for all the children to be awarded a fishing rod and reel, tackle box, fishing tackle, bucket, hat and water bottle. The children enjoyed learning how to tie fishing knots on their line, pump for yabbies, net bait and fish for their big catch.

Col Fisher Park was a beautiful venue that afforded a scenic backdrop for a great day for all ages. Special thanks to Peter Hunt, member of the Bribie Island Anglers Fishing Club who coordinated the day and to thanks also Ms Judy Lynne, fishing instructor, Sunfish Queensland, whose contributions made the day such a success.
