Reel em in, then send in your fish pics to win
FISHING as Australia's number one past time hasn't been getting enough coverage in the Advocate of late, we're are told, but we're about to change that this summer.
Every Saturday we'll be compiling pictures of some of the best catches on the coast, fishing tips that beginners to experts will appreciate and the good oil on what's biting where, when and what on.
It's now been a while since The Advocate's Fish of the Week competition last ran when our long-time fishing guru Brian 'Buddy' Budd called it a day to go fishing full-time.
Under constant calls from readers to bring a fishing page back into the weekend Advocate today we relaunch the Fish of the Week competition
So we are calling for the support of fishermen, fisherwomen and budding young anglers who are keen to share their fish of the week pictures and a few details on how they landed their catch.
Bragging rights will come with the honour of having your catch of the week pictures published in the Advocate, but thanks to the generosity of Bright Eyes Coffs Harbour we'll have a pair of Mangrove Jacks sunglasses and a cap, RRP. $79.99, up for grabs each week.
So until next week tight lines to tip the scales and catch and release when you can.
Enter Fish of the Week
Send your Fish of the Week picture, your name, contact details, the species you caught and where and how it was landed to firstname.lastname@example.org or message your pics to us on Facebook.
Next Saturday we'll feature a pick of the best entries.
The entrant deemed to have caught the Fish of the Week will receive a pair of Mangrove Jacks sunglasses and a cap courtesy of Bright Eyes Coffs Central and Bright Eyes Park Beach Plaza.
Good luck fishing.
