Good luck to all who are doing this comp, I've done it once (or was it twice?) and a very well run comp, another comp like the Taranaki one that is run by a fishing club committee, it's not a commercial money making scheme and it shows, good one guys and all the best for the comp :rock:
Phoenix Kayaks - Hornet
Stealth - Evolution 465
Ramco - Fishmaster 580 My BIG kayak!
...and the countless other kayaks I've owned

What an excellent comp this was and a great bunch of people who attended. :y:

The nice thing was this is its all about the sport which showed with over 70 making the effort.

There where heaps of spot prizes with most getting something. The best thing for me was seeing a young angler (unknown) picking up some prizes for the best fish well done that boy.

It was really awesome conditions this year and enjoyed fishing this area as well as catching up with everyone.

Will be back next year and a big congrats to the club for putting on a top class well organised event.
If you haven't been to this one I highly recommend it.
