Pirtek Challenge

Well what can i say apart from it rained,.. the fish stayed inside out of the rain. But there were three members of Tassiepaddlers that didnt let the weather or the catching of no fish worry them. These members were Chipz,Spork and Simmo. All i can say it was great company and fantastic time together on and off the water. We got into a harty breakky before the Pirtek Challenge started.
