Rivendell students ‘Get Hooked’!

This term the Get Hooked program delivered yet another fun-filled fishing workshop for Rivendell School students.
 
With stunning views of Sydney Harbour in the background, students were taught how to correctly tie a knot, how to identify different species of fish, and the importance of fishing sustainably. After morning tea students were able to cast a line into the beautiful waters of Mort Bay, Balmain. 
 
Congratulations go to the student who reeled in the “catch of the day”, a sizeable yellow-tailed Brim. 
Catch of the day- what a beauty! 
 
 
Another student reeled in a fish that could not be identified by the Get Hooked team, so the fish became affectionately known as a Stevenfish. 
 

A very peculiar Stevenfish 

 

This is the third fishing workshop our students have participated in, and we hope to keep our long-standing friendship with the staff for many years to come. Our staff and students are very appreciative of the efforts and enthusiasm the Get Hooked staff. A big thank you goes to Amalia and the Get Hooked team for once again providing an educated and important message to young people for our fishing future.
