Next Gen fishing team

TEN keen young tackle rats aged 13-17 who have been specially selected to form an exciting team to take our favourite sport to a whole new generation of junior anglers.

The Western Angler Next Gen team is sponsored by Getaway Outdoors, Halco Tackle, Bluewater Tackle, Compleat Angler and Camping World Nedlands, Seasport Charters Kalbarri and Red FM.

These kids are spread from Kalbarri to Dunsborough.

Each has individual fishing strengths and preferences, but between them they have fished some incredible locations and have some amazing achievements to their names.

They are out there fishing from jetties, beaches and rivers, and doing everything from bottom fishing from boats to squid fishing from kayaks.

Photos are snapped, videos made and it’s all up on the new Western Angler Next Gen Fishing page on Facebook .

You can also check out the team’s activities on Instagram at westernanglernextgen and in upcoming editions of Western Angler and on our website.

Also, look out for the team at the 2015 Mandurah Boat Show.

Don’t despair if you aren’t part of the team – get involved anyway as there will be opportunities for other young anglers to join Next Gen in the near future.
