Loomis Challenge 2009

Well the Loomis Challenge is over for another year. A well organised event by the boys from Cairns well done! This year there were 18 teams of 2 from as far away as Cairns and South Australia. It was amazing seeing so many fly rodders in one place. The categories included Champion Angler, Champion Team, Champion Flats and Champion Estuary Angler.

And the winners are Champion Angler Kim Strathern 1289 pts, Champion Estuary Kim Strathern 344 pts, Champion Flats Neil Cunnington 539 pts, and Champion Team LooMiss ( Dave Bradley & Maurie Madalie ) 2394 pts ( courtesy Australian Saltwater Flyfishing Online Stu.) The two teams from NQ Flyfishers came: Herbet River Travelers 2nd and Grumpy Old Men 5th. It was an interesting event with 10 target species each gaining points. The team that found and landed the most species over 30cms will always rate well. The points were low this year as the front of the main jetty was out of bounds due to the high wind warning. Thanks Heaps to Richard on being a great team mate and captain. You can see by the photos how rough it was!
