CFC MISSION STATEMENT
Country Fishing Classics (CFC) is proud to present an exciting new concept in freshwater tournament fishing which will appeal to family anglers of all ages as well as serious competition anglers. With all major prizes being won by random draw, it means that everybody stands an equal chance of winning one of the many major prizes on offer including 2 fantastic boat and trailer packages supplied by Bluefin Boats.Historically, “Catch & Release” Family orientated fishing tournaments have not had a lot of exposure in Country areas of Australia.CFC firmly believe that this aspect is critical to the future sustainability of our dwindling fish resources. CFC is therefore tackling this head on by running a series of Fishing Classics in the Wide Bay/Burnett Region of Queensland. If these initial Tournaments prove to be successful then CFC will expand the concept into other country areas.
To encourage family affordability and involvement, entry fees have been kept as low as possible. A $5 per adult entry “Early Bird” discount will be available to all senior anglers who register and pay in full at least 4 weeks in advance of the competition date.Maximum angler flexibility has been achieved by allowing entrants to fish from the shore, a kayak or a boat.The ‘Photograph & Release” Section does away with the need for anglers boats to be fitted with a live well. All that anglers need is a digital camera and an SD card. Anglers can choose to fish with bait or lures in all Sections.
Sustainable Fishing Practices
Superb Onsite Facilities
Commencing in September 2014 at Lake Boondooma, the Series consists of 4 rounds plus a Grand Final. The Grand Final is open to any entrant who has fished in a least one of the rounds. Each Round is split into 4 Sections as follows:
• Senior & Junior “Photograph & Release”
• Senior & Junior “Deadweight”
Each Section has its own unique set of Trophies to be won. In addition, all entrants are eligible for the Random Draws. With over $100,000 of prizes on offer thanks to the generous support of our Sponsors, this Series is the richest Inland Competition Series ever seen in South East Queensland.
