I may post a report of our weekend if I get round to it at risk of being assumed to be an over ego, tournament angling manic who thinks they're better than everyone else and has no respect for the law, waterways and other NON tournament anglers! blahblah1 makefun1

Go for it mate, would love to see it thumbsup1
Whens the next adventure?

I am not a fan of tournament anglers.... Only justification for it is that you guys are out fishing when I am at work envy1 behave1

Just kidding, each to their own I reckon. And as stated, there are a bucket load of comps now that support very worthy causes and also provide quality data on fisheries that is used to manage the sport and make sure that fishing continues well into the future for all levels. thumbsup1

Well done to Daz and look forward to hearing him brag, I mean report on the weekend grin1

As stated only passing it on. Thought this might open up a can of worms, Me personally couldnt give a rats arse either way but good to see someone else copping it instead of all the fly fishing comp blokes all the time. And as for speed all hydro waters have a ? 20 0r 10 knot speed limit on them so we all break the speed limits. It comes down to common sence where you go fast and dont speed, hopefully now this is the end to this crap so get over it and have a nice day if not well dont.

I enjoy fly fishing as much as taking the boy to the junior water or chasing bream on the coast or tuna on the peninsula or trout in the tournaments.
It's all fishing. If people are getting wound up about people that are not actually breaking the rules then I'm not sure why they are out there anyway. It about enjoying yourself. Now that might be a troll around a lake, fly fishing the margins to trout sipping duns, or testing yourself in a tournament against others doing the same.
I don't have an issue with your comments Shippy. Just many of us are a bit over the criticism that is largely unfounded toward so called 'tournament anglers'. I've been a member of an angling club since I was in primary school and fished comps pretty much every month for 30 years. I just don't see the difference between then and now. We certainly aren't arrogant and self indulgent. Any one who asks me a question gets an answer. You only have to read my posts I'm sure to see that or read an article. Happy to help anyone out who might be finding it tough on a water or species. I definitely don't have all the answers, far from it in fact but I'll always offer some advice where I can. It's great to see new faces having a crack every year. I've only done three years and learnt plenty, I hoped of shared just as much.

I've never heard the 10/20knt limit on Hydro waters before and my father was an IFS officer for 30 yrs. Is this written anywhere, or signed? I'd genuinely be keen to see the documentation if that's the case. I'm interested to know more.

I will post a report from the comp as soon as Harri gets the results out properly (as will Daz I'm sure - he's off breaming the coast somewhere right now)

Not 100% certain on the speed limits myself, but going back some years ago there were signs
at boat ramps saying the speed on the lake witch was always 10 or 20 knots, on the net can only come up with certain lakes with restricted speeds so may be that all changed after they stopped damming and making the lakes be good to find out either way.
Now to a better look, who in the comp caught the 32 fish at Arthurs if so well done and a great effort
I managed 14 on the fly and my mate 4 in our practice session ready for the states this weekend.
The blokes in the horse float and with the fire pot cant remember there names but were real friendly
blokes had a chat to them when we arrived and as we were leaving tryed to get us on the beer with em very tempting, Iam the same when fishing in the comps its full on and then after its all over, good to meet new people and social lize with your mates and others you only see two or three times a year. And I also chase tuna and other fish for the fun but very rarely keep any, like to catch and release not a fish eater thats the main reason for releasing, but would like to fish every day of the week if I could.

Here is the top three teams - break down is Great Lake/Arthurs Lake for Sat/Sun.
I was in team Downtown/Howler, we were equal on points with Cranka 2 at the end of day 2 but lost on countback.

The top 5 teams landed over 140 trout on Sunday at Arthurs with bags of 32, 28, 28, 27 and 26.
Great Lake Sat best bags - 24, 16, 15, 14 and 13.

1st: Team Cranka 2 - 13/32
2nd: Team Downtown/Howler Camo Rods -16/27

Thats a good tally of fish between the top five teams, bad luck TD on the count back a bit of a piss off
Do you blokes only fish with plastics and hard bodies or anything go's, Was there many fish caught at Great lake on the Saturday. When we catch fish in the fly comps we measure the length and then release the fish hopefully unharm, they normally take off like a frieght train, is your system the same or different and well done to all the blokes that caught heaps of fish and everyone that fished in it, cant wait till this weekend,  now that Iam fully cleared from the Doctors.

Fishing is by artificial lure only (fly or lure) and not allowed under power, i.e. no trolling but you can use the leccie to maintain course or position.
All fish are photographed on a measure with your team key tag and a secondary event sticker and fish must then be returned to the water.
Results are recorded on a sheet and checked against your cameras memory card.
We caught all ours on lures.

For us: Panish 65, Cherry Blood Deep and Dr Minnow in trout colours at GL
Arthurs was Presso in Black n Gold, Flatz Minnow in BnG and brown trout. BassX in BnG and the Dr Minnow in trout colour again

Daz and Isaac fished deep with Gulps in New Penny and Banana Prawn I think he said

Well out of all this I have learnt some thing. I actually thought all hydro waters were 5 knots. Is there a list any where of all the lakes etc and what speed is allowed on them.
I have met Tony and had many sessions of sending pm's back and forward with him. He is quite free with his info and knowledge. All I had to do was ask and he past on what he knew. Thanks for that mate.
Shippy is the same. I ask him some stupid questions some times about fly fishing and he always comes across with some straight forward  answers.
Most fishers are the same I have found. Ask and they are only too pleased to talk and pass on info.

Speed Limits and 5 knot Areas

SPEED LIMITS FOR RECREATIONAL VESSELS

The following speed limits exist for recreational vessels in Tasmania and on-the-spot fines can be issued to offenders.

No boat shall exceed a speed of 5 knots when within 60 metres of a wharf, jetty, mooring, the shoreline or other boat.

No boat shall exceed a speed of 5 knots when within 120 metres of a person swimming, a person diving (displaying the A flag) or a person wading in the water.

Provisional licence holders are not to exceed 20 knots.

There are also a number of designated areas around the state where a speed limit of 5 knots exists. These areas are normally around popular swimming beaches where MAST has previously encountered dangerous behaviour from PWC and boat operators in close proximity to swimmers.

I entered both comps on the weekend also and kept one fish to weigh. It was a Rainbow of 1.98 Lb from memory. I managed to pick up the mystery weight which was a nights accomdation at the great Lake Hotel and a days guided fishing for 2 people with UAF valued at $750! Was stoked with that seeing as we couldn't hold it together on day 2 in Arthurs to finish better in the other comp. Also scored 2 nights at the Great Lake Hotel with the random prize draw too so Very happy with the weekends results lol! I am the same as Justin and have only fished Great Lake and Arthurs a handful of times. that's why we struggled. Full credit to the winners though they smashed them. I am just happy to be out there fishing as most know whether its a comp or casual. mention fish and I am there. We were 6th on day one, but fell to 11th by the end of day 2. Pity we couldn't of stayed in the top 10 though, but there is always next year!
regards,
Tony
