Naenae College Fishing Club

Scott McLean —

The Naenae College Fishing Club (NFC) was begun by a group of interested junior students in term 1 of 2015. 

It is an informal club; if students want to go fishing, their parents give permission and they are taken out to a fishing spot on a Saturday (terms 1 and 4) and delivered back to school later, with or without a fish.

The aim of this club is to promote an interest in fishing and being outdoors. We want the students to visit a range of fishing spots in the Wellington area and to develop their skills in land based fishing.

Anglers need their own fishing gear, although there are some spare rods available for those who have none. Bait duty is shared and most trips end with a BBQ and drinks.
