The 24th Territory Saltwater Fly Fishing Challenge is being held from 8-10 September 2023.

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

Meals, evening entertainment and presentations are provided by the Club, as well as great prizes and a competition shirt.
