ANGLING

If you would like to join the FBYC Angling group please join by clicking on the button below.
Dear all fellow anglers,

Welcome and thanks Andrew Whitehead and Byron Ashington for volunteering to assist me and participate in an FBYC Angling subcommittee.

The Ice machine has been moved to its new position and is back in working order.

I have received many requests for a webcam that will show us a view of the bay. Today was typical, while it was white capping at millers, Simons Bay was fine for chokka fishing.

We intend installing a web camera on the flagpole on rumbles jetty and consequently calling for donations towards the data link, camera and router.

Ideally we need a hi site, maybe someone has a spot?

We have also been donated a new scale by our Commodore, Rob Newman. Thanks.

I have rigged up a block and tackle arrangement for lifting large tuna.

We need a lockable box that can be installed near security so that anglers can sign for the scale when they have a PB they would like to weigh and for future competitions.

We can't leave it up unfortunately, children are likely to play with it and could get hurt. Anybody have a suitable lockable box, please make contact.

Yours in angling,
Bryan Fitchat.
