Aspiring anglers are being lured to Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa in the Snowy Mountains for a special fishing weekend being held on 30 October and 1 November 2015.
The Lure of Trout Fishing Weekend is about introducing people of all ages to the sport of trout fishing using conventional fishing equipment (spin rod and reel) casting soft and hard body lures.
