Family fishing fun – the reel deal
8 February 2016
The annual Blue Light Kids Gone Fishin’ event is all about the simple things in life; hanging out with family, enjoying the sun as well as a morning’s fishing over the Waitemata Harbour at Wynyard Quarter. The Auckland event, held over the city’s anniversary weekend in late January, kick started a line of events throughout the country.
AA Insurance is the principal sponsor of Blue Light, so there was no shortage of staff volunteers to dazzle everyone with their sausage sizzling skills, and make sure the more than 2,000 crowd had plenty of sunscreen and remained hydrated during the long hot weekend. With face painting, Blue Light freebies, chocolate, and AA Insurance beach bags up for grabs, every child had the biggest smile on their face. The AA Insurance team even got their hands dirty cutting bait and unhooking fish.
New Zealand fishing legend, and Blue Light patron, Graeme Sinclair joined the fun to give advice and encouragement, as well as select winners for a raft of grand prizes. These included fishing rods, for those who caught the largest fish.
