Series 14 HOBIE FISHING SERIES.
Welcome to 2023 Series 14 of the Hobie Fishing Series.
From the beginning of this journey back in 2009 here in Australia, we have aimed to create a platform that showcases the world of kayak fishing. In the all-inclusive environment, from “first timers” to now some seasoned veterans of 10-plus years, the friendships developed through these events will be lifelong.
Hobie has been the world’s leading innovator of kayak propulsion technology since the late 1990s and here we are some 20+ years later about to leap into what we believe will be our best year yet.
The journey has been just that: setting new standards in tournament angling and growing with the world’s leading brands through crucial partnerships, most of which still exist today, domestically and globally. Without these partnerships, we would not be able to do what we do, and we will remain grateful for the support these organisations continue to supply. As our naming rights sponsor, DAIWA AUSTRALIA leads the way again this year, along with a list of industry-leading partners in LOWRANCE, POWERPOLE, ATOMIC, STRIKE PRO, TACKLE TACTICS, PRO LURE, MANIC TACKLE / SIMMS, HOBIE POLARIZED. In addition, a new partnership with HURRICANE LURES and a continuation of our affiliate sponsors Escape with ET and The Fly Program.
It is, of course, entirely necessary that we note the exceptional part that the AUSTRALIAN HOBIE DEALER NETWORK plays in the success of these events. Each angler relies on this highly talented and devoted group of business owners and their staff to be as prepared as possible for what confronts them on tournament day.
Of course, it goes without saying the anglers themselves are the heart of the HOBIE FISHING SERIES; we appreciate every kilometre of travel and every dollar they have invested in HOBIE products as well as the support that they offer the fishing industry as a whole.
We look forward to creating a series that will continue to be the benchmark for kayak fishing events here in Australia as it has been throughout its history. No other series or kayak fishing tournament offers the genuinely global opportunity as does HOBIE, and we look forward to seeing each of you through the 2023 season ahead.
