The Saltwater Flyfishers Association Sunshine Coast Inc Annual Longtail Tuna Chase will be held at Mooloolaba over 3 days from March 31 to April 2, 2006.
Competitors will vie for trophies donated by Andy Vockler of Bli Bli Reality and Peter Heiderman Jewellers. The titles of Champion Male Angler, Champion Female Angler, Champion Team and Champion Junior are up for grabs. A lucky prize draw of all competitors will see some lucky anglers taking away prizes from our major sponsors; Gavin Platz at Tie-n-Fly Outfitters, Paul Wright from Scott Fly Rods Australia and Nial Logan of Try on Fly.
The Longtail Tuna Chase, along with events at Hervey Bay and Bribie Island forms part of the Tuna on Fly circuit. The competition format is simple, each angler receives 5 points for a Longtail Tuna and 1 point for other tuna species. A strong emphasis is placed on having fun and many competitors treat this event as an opportunity to meet new fly fishers or to catch up with others they haven’t seen for a while.
Fishing Times are 0600 to 1600 Friday and Saturday and 0600 to 1130 Sunday. This year the venue for briefings and the presentation will be the Kawana Waters Hotel.
