This fun and challenging fly fishing contest is held in the fish rich waters of Bynoe Harbour. This vast natural harbour, with its myriad of fishing options, is a fly fishing haven. There are ample mud flats that provide outstanding run-off sight fishing opportunities. The usual rocky outcrops, islands, creeks and tidal estuaries provide numerous surface and deep water fly fishing challenges.

This catch and release tournament focuses on seven target species including Barramundi, Salmon, Tarpon, Queenfish, Trevally, Mackerel and Snapper. The Challenge is to land all of the 7 species in one day.

The competition is based at Sandpalms Roadhouse Tropical Motel, Bynoe. Meals, evening entertainment and presentations are provided by the Darwin Flyrodders, as well as great prizes and a competition shirt.

The competition brief will be held on Thursday at 8pm with fishing times Friday & Saturday 7am -  5pm (scores in), Sunday 7am - 2pm (scores in), final presentation at 4pm Sunday

Included in the registration fee is a bacon/egg toasty and coffee for breakfast, dinner on Friday and Saturday night & bar snacks at the final presentation. Lunch packs can be organised for competitors but must be done the night before.
