    SCSWFF Bass On Fly 2008

    Hi everyone
    Would like to announce that the 2008 Bass on Fly Tournament is on once again at Lake Borumba this year.
    The tournament will be held in November the 21st, 22nd and 23rd. Friday the 21st is the breifing night at 7.30pm at the Deer Park.
    This year there has been a few minor changes. Instead of being just one six hour session, we have decided to go for two six hour sessions over a two day period.
    We will also be encouraging fish friendly handling techniques, such as barbless hooks and knotless nets this year. After all, it is a catch and release tournament and we want to see these beautiful fish stay healthy for other anglers to catch in the future.
    When more details, such as entry forms, rules and any other relative information become available, I will post a link to the site where they can be downloaded from.
    Hope to see you all there this year as last year proved to be a big success and those who attended will agree. Especially the lucky angler who walked away with the Galeforce Saratoga boat as the luck draw just for entering.

    P.S. This year the location will stay at Lake Borumba, which has great accomodation facilities such as the beautiful Deer Farm, as well as camping grounds near the dam and motel in Imbil as well.

    Hi Vaugh
    You lucky bugger being able to get away for a week to fish Monduran. Not good that the fish didn't want to come out and play for you.
    Just rang the Deer Park at Borumba and it now confirmed that the tournament will be staged from the park. The breifing will be held at the under cover area near the kiosk on the friday night, as well as the presentation on sunday.
    There are plenty of caravans and cabins available at this stage, but its advised to book early so those wishing to stay in these don't miss out. Also, there is ample camping available for those wishing to pitch a tent.
    To book the accomodation, just give the Deer Park a ring on 07 54 845196. Just let them know that you will be with the Bass on Fly tournament.
    Cheers

    Hi Nuggstar. Be great to see you there. Yep, theres some good toga up there thats for sure. But they'll be a by catch during the comp being a Bass comp.

    Well its not far away now. Coming up very quickly.
    The finishing touches are being done as I type. Entry forms and rules will be up very shortly.
    It looks like its going to be a cracker with the water temp rising fast and the bass are starting to come out of their winter hibination. And with the dam still at close to if not at 100%, there is plenty of water to explore.
    Will post up link to rules and entry form as soon as they are up.
    Remember, its a 2 day comp this year, and will be staged at the Borumba Deer Farm, so if you haven't booked your site, van or cabin, then you might want to do it soon.

    Cheers

    Will advise with more details as soon as they are completed.
