Kids Big Fish

Kids Big Fish

Kids Big Fish a great holiday program for kids who like to think and catch big!

Kids will spend a couple of hours down at Busby’s pond with Tony the Fish Whisperer. Learn how to bait a non-barbed hook, how to cast out, then catch and land a fish. These are great skills that can be used anywhere you may want to fish be it fresh or saltwater

Kids will be fishing for carp in our ponds, these are large fish that are an adventure to catch. In fact some of our fish are so big that we even have our own world record for the longest carp to be caught. See more here.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity as fishing is usually not allowed in the Parklands, but as this is an endorsed program kids can have an experience that many don’t have.
