It was a fantastic day with a lot of trees planted and rubbish removed from the riparian zone. This work will hopefully enhance the local fishery by improving water quality and increasing habitat structure that fish need throughout various stages of their life.
One of the best aspects of the day however, was interacting with community members who are passionate about habitat restoration and fishing. It was great to meet and chat fishing with members from the Illawarra Fly Fishers Club. Another drawcard of the event was fly fishing legend Juan Luis Del Carmen from the Advanced Fly Fishing School Sydney, who gave some of us a much needed fly casting lesson (me)!
Watch all the action that unfolded on the day above in a great video produced by our friend James Lidsey from North Head Media. Massive thanks to Adam Woods from CVA for organising the event and having us. Keep an eye out for more events like these in the future!
The project was assisted by NSW DPI Rec fishing trusts “Habitat Action Grants”.
