Hundreds of keen anglers are ready to drop a line this week for the annual Putt Bennett Family Fishing Festival being held at Mylestom. The festival regularly attracts people from interstate, including South Australia and Queensland, and 2019 is expected to be no different.
Up to 350 juniors will be taking part in the event, which encourages children and families to engage in environmentally sustainable fishing practices with the focus on ‘catch and release’ in the categories of flathead, whiting and bream. The points scoring system favours anglers who choose to submit their healthy live fish in this manner. This year the festival has over $60,000 in prizes thanks to the generous support of local Coffs Coast sponsors.
