Toolamba Fishing Classic hooked community on Easter weekend

By Madeleine Byron

With the weather delivering plenty of sunshine, participants taking part in the 13th annual Toolamba Fishing Club Easter Classic hit the water with bait and line, enjoying two days of fishing.

The ‘‘catch and release’’ competition, along the Goulburn River, ran across Good Friday and Saturday.

Starting things early this year, participants and club members were invited to a barbecue for a gold coin donation on Thursday night, before the early morning start on Friday.

The fishing competition show bags were a hit, as was the Friday night meal and band entertainment by Under the Radar.

More than $6000 worth of prizes were up for grabs, leaving fishermen keen to hook a winner.
