- July 13-19, 2019 on the banks outside Club Evans RSL
ON the back of the successful 2018 Evans Head Fishing Classic, Australian Fishing Tournaments is returning and will once again be managing this world-class fishing competition.
The Evans Head Fishing Classic is synonymous with family holiday fun and is now well into its twenties. It also makes a significant contribution to the local economy in the process. Due to competitor demand, this year sees the event move to a six-day format, enabling the local weekly accommodation blocks to fit into the event schedule.
The 2019 Evans Head Fishing Classic will run from the night of July 13 to the main prize draws on July 19. The competition fishing zones allow fishing from Byron to Yamba and cover both estuary and offshore. For AFT and entrants, this delivers a contingency for bad weather and provides multiple fishing options.
On the Sunday, come down with the little ones for the Cadet Competition. There are also fishing clinics to help teach the young guns how to improve their fishing. They are free to anyone, not just competitors.
Champions, competitors and all attendees will be in the running for a total prize pool of over $100,000. All six-day competitors have the chance to win one of two boat, motor and trailer packages sponsored by Quintrex and Evinrude E-TEC. A host of other prizes from Lowrance Electronics, Samurai Rods, Wilson Fishing, Hobie Kayaks, Frogleys Offshore and others will be given away through the event.
The Evans Head Fishing Classic will be held on the riverbanks outside Club Evans, strong event supporters, as are many other businesses in the local community. Make sure you check out the website and support those who support your passion.
