Hook Up E-News

The PGFC Hook-Up electronic newsletter is published regularly throughout the year when there are items that are of interest to members.

PGFC Members receive their emailed copy of Hook-Up on the day of publication. It is published on the website immediately during winter, but from November, as the fishing season approaches, its appearance on the website will be delayed 7 to 10 days. It may be available on request via contact@pgfc.com.au .
