Get ready to hook in

By Riverine Herald

THIS weekend is your chance to reel in the catch of the day and score some handy prizes.

After last year’s successful launch, the Echuca United Fishing Classic is back for a second year and if you land the big one you could also land yourself a boat, motor and trailer package worth $15,000 from Boats and More.

The event will be staged at Morning Glory River Resort in Moama with live entertainment kicking off on Friday from 8pm – meals from 6pm – but everyone needs to have their rods ready for the ‘reel’ action from 7am on Saturday.

Fishing runs until 5pm on Saturday and Sunday’s event goes from 7am to 11am.

There will be competitions for all age groups and abilities and fishing can be done by boat or from the bank as competitors enjoy the serenity.

With thousands of dollars worth of other prizes it won’t be too shabby picking up some of the other awards either.

And don’t worry if fishing is not your go. There will be loads of activities and entertainment available for those who don’t wish to compete in the competition.
