The tenth annual PIRTEK Fishing Challenge, which attracted almost 9000 participants, has been recognised as the world’s biggest competition for anglers.

With entrants from every Australian state and territory, the event also raised funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit.

Australia’s unique landscape was subject to an equally varied range of weather conditions for this year’s Challenge, which produced an endless list of ‘tales’ and interesting images loaded to the event’s official website.

There were some mighty fish caught including a 112cm barramundi in Queensland; Murray Cod over the magic metre mark and some big “Top End” trevally. The southern States produced great results with flathead over 90cm, cracking snapper and a 77cm brown trout from Tasmania.There were 157 individual prize winners across Australia all sharing in the $210,000 prize pool - see below for links to winners.PIRTEK provides $90,000 cash which is divided between 25 mystery length target fish, providing all entrants with the opportunity to win big without necessarily catching the biggest fish.One of the highlights of the challenge is the On The Water prize draw and this year’s major winner was Chris Rossetti from Charlestown, NSW who won the $29,000 boat/motor/trailer package thanks to Stacer and Evinrude.

The Derwent Catchment ProjectThe Derwent Catchment Project is running a training session that may appeal to Anglers who want to learn more about waterbugs that attract the trout . We are running a free training day in how to identify waterbugs at Tynwald Park New Norfolk on Sunday April 8th 2018 from 9am-2pm (but you don’t have to stay for the whole session).

We identify water bugs using basic equipment (no microscope required!) together with a groovy phone app or key. We will have a Freshwater Ecologist on hand who helped develop the system.

2019 ffcAustralia will to host the 39th FIPS- Mouche World Fly Fishing championships in Tasmania in late November 2019.

More information is available on the recently released web site www.wffc2019.com This web site will be updated from time to time as we progress to the event.
