Within the Fairfield Harbor Fishing Club, the Neuse River Kayak Fishing Group has been formed. We’ve had two meetings and we are still organizing the specifics of how we will conduct our meetings and outings. Even though we are just starting the group, there are already 25 members registered.
Local kayak fishing clubs are a great way to promote kayak fishing. They provide a "grass roots" platform to kayak anglers for organized events, such as rigging days, workshops and seminars on a variety of topics prioritizing safety. Clubs also may provide a place for newbies to have their questions answered and to reduce the learning curve, and of course camaraderie.
In terms of member meetings, we will be holding a monthly “meet and fish”. We intend to offer a different meet and launch location for each meeting. As a newly formed club, our initial goal will be to promote kayak safety.
We welcome anyone who loves to fish and has any type of paddle craft - kayak, canoe, or paddle board. If you are new to the sport or just want to come see what we are all about, contact Jim Spatharos (Jimspa@aol.com) or Tom Riggs (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
