Pirtek Fishing Challenge 2013
Welcome to the Pirtek Fishing Challenge 2013. Thanks very much for your participation last year. The support that you, and the other 6500 anglers who participated in 2012, allowed us to hand over a cheque for $130,000 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
Sunday, 24 March 2013 is the day to lock away in your diary. There is over $145,000 in cash and prizes to be won, and it's still only $20 to enter. This fee goes directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and we'll send you a limited edition Pirtek Fishing Challenge 2013 cap and brag mat.
There are 20 target species nationally with fantastic prize packs for the four longest fish caught in each category. Junior anglers (under 16) won't miss out either with prizes for first and second for each target species.
Returning for 2013, a $4000 cash prize will be awarded, in each species, for the fish closest to the "Mystery Length" in ACT/NSW, NT, QLD, VIC and Northern WA. New for 2013, and to give our angling mates even more to fish for there will be 2 target species in SA, TAS and Southern WA with a $2000 cash prize for the mystery length in each category. (The "Mystery Length" for each species will be determined prior the event, and this prize is available for the senior section only).

Fish The Challenge With ET and Guesty
ET and I will again be spending March 24 on Lake Macquarie. And once again you have the chance to "Fish the Challenge" with us, and possibly be part of filming an episode of "Escape with ET'.
We'll fly you from your closest capital city to Newcastle, you'll spend two nights at Rafferty's Resort, and we'll provide all the tackle you'll need for a great day on the water.
PFC 2013 Apparel
We had such a great response to the Fishing Challenge Shirt we offered last year, we've extended the range. Not only is the limited-edition Fishing Shirt back (with a new 2013 design), we've also added a handy 'stowaway" jacket, a great-looking T-shirt and high-quality Michael Guest Fishing pliers.
You'll find all the details up at https://pirtekfishingchallenge.com.au/pfc-merchandise.
Pirtek Reel Deal
Again this year, you can purchase your own bottle of Pirtek Reel Deal.
This lanolin-based product has been developed specifically for modern fishing gear to lubricate and protect. Plus it's Australian made and owned! Details of Reel Deal are up at https://pirtekfishingchallenge.com.au/pirtek-reel-deal.
Remember the idea is to grab the family or a couple of mates for the day, have a great time fishing, raise a few dollars for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and hopefully some big bucks or prizes for yourself! Let's fight a fish to fight prostate cancer.
