Ok boys and girls the rules are set and the nominations are in. we already have over 40 entries and the prize pool is getting bigger and bigger. There has been some concern with the carton entry fee so it has been decided that the entry will be:

2 Barra lures with a value of around $25-$30 that’s about the same as a carton anyway. These lures will then be put back up as prizes.

This is a list of lure companies that support FFF so I would ask that the lures be in this range.
Reidys
Halco
RMG
Killalure
Classic
Tilsan
Rapala
Storm
Berkley
Nils Master
Try to buy a lure that you would use yourself.

Lures will need to be purchased and posted or dropped off to me at 3 Iris St Alawa before the end of February. If this is a problem and you live out of town just drop me a PM and we will sort something out. I just don’t want to be chasing people for lures at the end of the year.

The comp is still open to new entrants so if you know anyone who wants to give it a go just send me a PM.

This is a list of entrants I have so far

Every 3rd month an entrant with the best attached post will win a free reel service from "Justin the FFF reel service Guru" it must be the reel you caught the fish on and if you need your reel serviced before hand you can contact Justin via PM or phone 0427266409 for a quote

thanks Justin

this is a good thread to keep going and making general comments on the comp so keep em coming. if you have any Q's put em here or send me a PM.

all the rules and changes along the way aswell as a score board will be at http://www.fishingterritory.com/viewtopic.php?t=18535

Yeh a big thanks to all who've gotten involved :clap: :clap: and to CB who probably started it all with last years exploits :clap: :clap: All I gotta do now is snag a Baz :banghead: :banghead: :drinking1: :drinking1:
Maybe we could put up a destination of choice every now and them Adelaide/ Finiss/Shady/ South/ Daly or the Harbour on a selected weekend/day and have a fish and a bit of a session ?:drinking2: :drinking2: Hard to organise with so many people but it might add to the fun and put a few more faces to the names?? :drinking1: :drinking1:

just wondering if some of the months (maybe april/may) the post as many barra as you want' rule should be suspended, and maybe have a 5 barra limit to post up for the month? or change the rule altogether?

It isnt uncommon in the runoff to catch 50 or 100 fish in a day/weekend, and I am not sure how exciting looking at 1000's of pics of 55cm-65cm barra lying on a brag mat are for anyone??

If you think about it, we have 50 entrants, if they all post up 5 barra each...thats 250 pics just for that month...that will take forever just to wade through them, let alone if people started putting up, 10 or 20 fish pics...or in Bandits case, 30-40 :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

just my 2 bobs worth, and maybe that is just me and everyone else wants to see heaps of pics of fish?
Cheers

Re: the requirement to post your fish by the end of the month - what about situations where (like this weekend) we have the 31st of a month on a saturday? am sure there will be many people doing overnighters throughout the weekend and won't be able to post photos til they return, (ie in Feb) but have caught fish on the saturday??

just a thought..
Cheers,
Stuch.
