Casting a line will raise awareness

WHO would have thought fishing could help your prostate?

Well, Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald reckons a national fishing competition hoping to raise $100,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia is the perfect way to raise awareness and funds for men's health.

The Pirtek Fishing Challenge will be held from 6am to 6pm on Sunday, April 19.

More information about the challenge can be found at www.pirtekfishingchallenge.com.au.
