    A strategic partnership could be the key to the success of your project. The benefits of working with other recreational fishers, neighbouring land holders, local landcare or river care groups, and/or government agencies include:

    • Sharing the work load
    • Sharing skills and knowledge
    • Access to different networks and areas
    • Contributing additional resources
    • Access to diverse funding sources

    • Acceptance of a partner’s contribution and level of involvement
    • Regular and effective communication
    • Celebration of achievements
