NSW DPI is celebrating this great national day of fishing fun by streaming a special how-to on family fishing basics featuring Social Fishing’s Rhys Creed and DPI’s very own Ian Osterloh.  

Tune into the DPI Fisheries Facebook page at 7pm tonight (8 October), to watch Rhys and Ian cover off on the basic tackle, rigs and baits you need to catch golden perch in our inland dams and rivers and bream and flathead in coastal waters.

This Friday night timeslot gives you the time to learn from the experts and get your gear sorted in order to make this Sunday’s Gone Fishing Day celebrations the best yet! 

As well as fantastic practical info and advice on fishing rules, we’ve got a stack of awesome prizes up for grabs during the video including kids’ fishing outfits and an array of great lures. 

No matter if you’re young or old, Gone Fishing Day is a great opportunity to get out on the water.  

While we can’t promote large gatherings at the moment, we’ve worked with Rhys and Ian to produce a great video filled with handy tips and advice.

Make sure you tune in at 7pm tonight to check it out!  

And remember you can watch it over and over again, even while you’re fishing on Sunday! 

You may also want to download the free Gone Fishing Day app from the Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation (ARFF) for more opportunities to celebrate our national day of fishing. The app is available to download right now. 

Gone Fishing Day is run in collaboration with ARFF, with support from the Recreational Fishing Trusts and NSW DPI.  

Tight lines for Sunday!
