Competitions

Healthy competition is always uplifting for our club members. We are proud to have several members who have participated in and won several pro fishing competitions in Melbourne and Victoria. These experienced individuals serve as guides to our new members and help those who have started fishing for the first time or taken up the sport after a long break. To keep the spirit of angling alive in all members, our club hosts at least 4-5 in-house competitions. These competitions can be held locally or during an outing. Like all our activities, the competitions’ timing, rules, date, and location are decided by the club members.

In addition, our club members partake in state fishing competitions hosted by ANSA affiliated organisations. Other competitions our pro club members have been a part of are mentioned as follows.

  • Golden Tag Competition by The Victorian Fisheries Authority

  • ‘Fishiest 100’ competition

  • Cod Classic Fishing Competition

  • GoFish Nagambie 2020 Fishing Competition

  • Victoria Snapper Competition

  • Horsham Fishing Competition

  • Fish4Cash competitions

Our Team Has Experienced Fishers

We are proud to say, our administration team has experienced fishers who share the same passion for angling as our club members. Most of our team members have participated in and won several fishing sports competitions and they can provide valuable guidance.

Since the COVId-19 outbreak, many competitions were postponed or cancelled which is true for our in-house events as well. However the good news is that many restrictions were eased in by 17 June and people are again free to move around without time or travel limits.

Thus, we plan to host a few more family competitions soon but keeping safety in mind. Although the 25km travel limit will be removed and moving between Melbourne and regional areas of Victoria will resume, we are cautious.

  • Competing with other club members and people who enjoy fishing as much as you is not only great for boosting your interest but also great for gaining confidence in your abilities.

  • It helps you learn more and quickly because you witness techniques of others and get tips from fishing enthusiasts who have been enjoying the activity for years.

  • They are also excellent for enhancing collaborations and team work. Many of our in-house competitions require the club members to team up and it is always fun!

  • The competitions are also excellent for social and emotional learning. Fishing as a hobby can be isolating when you don’t have like-minded people around. Therefore, by parting in competitions, you can learn a lot and have social interactions.

  • Good for beneficial peer comparisons. Competitions should always be healthy and advantageous for you. During one you can learn so much from people who have dedicated many years to fishing and angling. You can interact with or observe peers to know how to perform the activity. Also, it helps if you engage in conversation with to learn more.

  • Competing in tournaments also helps you strengthen yourself mentally. Often while competing we want to win and it can be stressful. But when you understand the spirit of the sport and know that people with passion, skills and determination get ahead, then it is easier to strengthen your mentally and achieve your goals.
