As mentioned at last weeks Meet Up thought it time to share these with all the members of this forum.
They are of the first ever KFNZ Meet Up at Martins Bay 26th November 2009.
A few faces there that are still around today and with just 14 attendees including Mental it was a small group but all still managed a good time. :beer:

This really shows how things have changed when compared to the one held last week.

Always good to see a simple idea (joining a bunch of like minded individuals together) on the net, growing into good times and friendships. Not happy that I couldn't make this one, but hope to be part of next years meet-up :y:

I remember the huge container packed to the brim with every Slam softbait you could think of ...... and Rob trying to convince us that you could actually catch fish with them !!! :lol:
Think ive still got the free packs somewhere in the garage :lol:
Robs video of catching the Kingfish on a softait amazed me at the time .
It was a great weekend with like minded people and it did feel like the beginning of something big . :y:
