$200,000 lure to catch anglers of all abilities

UP TO $200,000 will be invested to make it easier for anglers with disabilities to access some of the state's best fishing spots.

Minister for Primary Industries, Land and Water Niall Blair and Minister for Disability Services John Ajaka made the announcement this week, saying the government was committed to improving access to recreational fishing opportunities.

"This funding will be invested into targeted fishing clinics as well as infrastructure upgrades, such as new casting platforms and access ramps at some of our most popular angling sites," Mr Ajaka said.

The partnership will involve $100,000 of direct funding for the development of specialised amenities and workshops to give anglers with disability equal access to popular fishing spots.
