As the bearded burbler would put it, Khancoban is one of the worlds most “piscatorial” fishing destinations. Even better, it is once again the location of the popular Khancoban Trout Fest, in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains.
This fantastic fishing competition runs for a full week from Saturday, November 22, through to the following Saturday, November 29, 2008. This would have to be the most relaxing competition going around, as there is no “gotta get up and on the water before the birds that catch the worms”. There’s no “Geez…I’ve only got today to catch a fish” and “what if I don’t get back to the weigh-in on time?”
With the comp running for a full week you will have time to have a lie in, grab a late brekky, and wander off to play nine holes on a very challenging and superb golf course. You could even have a hit of tennis, enjoy a relaxing lunch with a glass of chardy, or grab an afternoon nap before wandering down to the lake or river to catch your trout. Who knows, you could still win $500 cash.
Of course, you can also go nuts like those knuckleheads that just have to fish for every minute of every day. The good thing is, the choice is totally yours.
The Khancoban Lakeside Caravan Resort, in conjunction with the Khancoban Angling Club, Khancoban Country Club, Corryong High Country Trading, WAW – Smart banking, Khancoban Holiday Houses and JJ’s Café, invite anyone who thinks they can catch a trout to the 2008 Khancoban Trout Fest.
With $1,500 in cash and prizes in various categories including best brown and best rainbow trout, the chances of getting into the winners circle is stacked in your favour. There are also some great accommodation packages available, so don’t forget to mention you are staying to fish the Trout Fest for a great discount.
All legal methods can be used, so if you think you’re better with your worms than the guy with the fly then head on up to Khancoban to try your luck.
