Mossops ‘The Angler’ Report: Offshore, Moreton Bay, Foreshore August

IT was great to see so many mates and familiar faces out and about at the Moreton Bay Fishing Classic over the weekend.

I must say the Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club did an absolute superb job of organising the event and how good was it to have such glorious weather.

We have a wrap up of the Classic below in our News section along with a spotlight on the finesse of the Revo MGX.

And guess who popped into the store this week? Good old Lenny Mossop. He dropped off some memorabilia which we will bring to you over the coming editions. On that note I’d love to hear some fishing yarns from yourself or photographs – email them through or drop them off at the shop.

In the meantime, be safe and good luck over the weekend.
