An inter club challenge between South East Queensland and Sunshine Coast Fly Fishing Clubs was held over the weekend of 21 / 21 June 2009.
The results were rather one sided with Sunshine Coast easily taking the magnificent trophy (created by Nat Bromhead) to hang in Tie “n” Fly Outfitters for the next year.
As the writer was late for the prizegiving I can only say that I think Bruce Nitskie, Pete Swanson, Dazz and Nat Bromhead were the leading anglers, with each catching several species at unspecified venues.
A great weekend was had by all, with possible highlights being a crab dinner (thanks Alf) and a midnight casting competition held in dreadful conditions by dreadfully conditioned competitors. This was won by Jackson (Jacko) Marr with the only serious competition coming from Chris Adams. Jacko certainly throws a long line and must be viewed as a contestant in future australian distance casting events.
Tom Boylan, el presidente of SE Qld, immediately laid down the gauntlet with a promise of a rematch at a venue more familiar to his club.
