After getting 237 entries last year and numbers going up every year, 2015 might be our first sell out so get in early is my advice as numbers are limited to 250.

Earlybird price of $60 is available until the end of January which will roll around pretty quick. Everyone that enters gets a comp t-shirt as part of the entry so everyone is a winner. There are loads of spot prizes including Bradley smokers, Lowrance fish finders as well as all the category prizes.

It is very easy to enter, just fill out the registration form at http://www.kayakfishingclassic.org.nz" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and pay online or post an entry form and cheque, details at the same place.

Check out the website for rules, videos and photos of previous comps.

See you at Butlers Reef pub on Friday night rego on the 27th March!! :beer:

Cheers

Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
