How To Adopt A Learner

5 posts in this topic

G'Day all

Wow! A new look site and a heap of new options. We're heading towards our 10,000th member and we've got some great new sponsors as well. Slinky (with some grateful assistant from Alan Tani) has created a reel maintenance section and it is a crackin' success! Today we're going to kick off yet another section – Adopt a Newbie.

Admin has been considering this program for a while now, primarily due to the very generous information provided to the forum by many of its members, and the willingness of those less experienced to stick up their hand and request advice. Why not put the two groups together and share in their success?

Here's how we would like to do it. Those of you who are having difficulty learning your desired fishing technique (whether it be bass on lures, fishing for kings, whatever), place your details into a post:

Your name: Help Meout

Your Location: Bakobourke

Fishing technique: Jewfish on lure

Availability: Weekends only

Preferred location: Hawkesbury River

Provide your own gear? Yes/No

Provide your own boat? Yes/No

Hopefully, a member who is experienced in this technique and location will then offer to take a 'newbie' out on the water and 'show them the ropes' When this occurs, let us know and we will open (and pin) a new topic in this section, and the new 'team' can post their report in there for all of us to follow their success. Easy!

This is a terrific opportunity for less experienced members to receive one-on-one tuition, and for experienced members to share in the excitement of "My first Kingy!", "My first fish on surface lure!" etc. Let's hope this becomes one of our busiest forum sections, full of 'firsts', new friendships and a whole heap of photos. Good luck!

Anyone who demonstrates this "fishraider spirit of assistance above and beyond" will be given a MENTOR badge for their signature and may be in the running for a grand prize

PLEASE NOTE: Learners MUST be over 18. Minors are not allowed to be "adopted" unless accompanied by a parent or an adult known to them such as a family friend.

G'day raiders,

I've been looking for this program for a while and happy to find it here. I wonder whether this program is still active as surprisingly, such the attractive program has been received few responses from the forum (or perhaps I'm looking in a wrong place). Anyway, I put my name forward and would love to hear from some member who is willing to adopt and show me the ropes.

My info is as follows:

Name: Chinh (Lincohn), 32 yo

Location: inner west

Fishing technique wants to learn: blackfish on weed or 'real' bait

Availability: weekends only

Preferred location: land/shore based within 1.30 hrs driving from Sydney

Has my on gear but don't have boat.

Cheers,

Chinh

Hi mates,

Not sure whether this is the right session but I am new to Cronulla and keen to enjoy beach fishing. I've been watching many YouTube videos and got fascinated by the Aussie salmon

So I'm looking forward to finding a fellow fisher. Im 32yo and just started my postgrad in acc&finance so no idea how to catch a thing in the sea. Hahaha

Im available in the weekends and can travel. I'm also up to catch anything in case there's any mate nearby.

cheers, Fernando.
