2014 Tasmanian Flycasting Championships

The 2014 Tasmanian Flycasting Championships were held at the beautiful Salmon Ponds at Plenty.  The weekend celebrations of the 150th Anniversary  since the introduction of Trout ensured a large positive crowd were present to  watch the competition.

Pirtek Fishing Challenge - Tasmania

Here's the final results for the Pirtek Fishing Challenge for tassie. I'm very happy with my result to catch what I did in the Mersey River as I knew it was going to be tough to be most fish taken from the lakes. I won a $300-00 prize pack from Berkley & Companion Equipment.
Cheers

A personal request to you.

On 26 October we are taking part in the ABC Tasmania Giving Tree Garage Sale in Hobart. We are trying to gather fishing gear to sell - with all money raised going to the Giving Tree Charity. This is Tasmania's biggest Christmas Charity.
We will be on air from 6.40am that morning.
If you have any tackle you can spare please email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) me.
Any tackle that is left over will be packaged up as gifts for the Giving Tree.
This is your chance to help a Charity - and get some kids into fishing that may not otherwise have a chance.

Everyone has something they can spare - so please help.
