2017 Australian Championship Invitations Are On Their Way

2017 australian championship press release

Congratulations, to the anglers who have qualified and made the first round of invitations to the 2017 Hobie® Kayak Bream Series 9 Australian Championship, which will be battled out from the Mandurah Quay Resort in Western Australia, from 16-19 November.

It’s been another phenomenal year for the 12-round, national series, which has taken kayak anglers to some of the most exciting fisheries, pristine waterways and natural environments across 5 Australian states.

Round after round saw new competitors join the growing list of enthusiastic regulars, the women and youth groups continued to expand and our Masters and Grand Masters divisions encouraged the “old fellas” to keep coming back for more.

Even when the fishing was tough the camaraderie out shone any disappointment of a sugarless donut, friendships grew and new ones developed. This Series 9 has always been more than just about fishing, it’s about sharing, it’s about being healthy and active, it’s about mateship and for many it has become a way of life.

The supreme tournament, the ultimate test of skill, the challenge that will make a new Australian Champion is yet to take place, and the 9th year of Hobie Fishing tournaments will culminate with a bigger BANG! than ever, over on the west coast of this great southern land.

Our absolutely, brilliant sponsors have supported Hobie Fishing through the years to create the ultimate kayak fishing series in this country, and to set the benchmark for kayak fishing series globally.

Anglers who haven’t made the cut to compete in the championships as-yet, should keep an eye on their emails over the coming weeks. You might get a pleasant surprise!

We’ll keep you up to date with developments as they happen in the lead up to the championship and give you cast by cast blows as the action heats up from November 16.

We look forward to seeing the elite of kayak anglers in this country meet and compete in the 2017 Hobie® Kayak Bream Series 9 Australian Championship in Western Australia.
