Don't you have to take your own PFD?

i think you are supposed to take your own pfd.

just take to the comp what you would need throughout a normal days fishing: pliers, braid snips, leader etc. as well as water, food..... the main thing ive heard from boaters is to not bring loads of equipment onto their boat ie. a couple of setups + the above.

thats the way ill be set up for my first tourny in Taree this year.

Daniel,

On the Friday evening during the briefing you will get to meet your boaters for the weekend. This is the time to ask them exactly how much gear you can bring along. Some boaters let you bring along as much gear as you possibly want, others, due to the size of their boats, limit you to 2 rods, a tackle bag and a food bag.

Again, ask if you need to bring along your own PFD and at the end of the day remember - offer petrol money to your boater. 99.9% of the time they will not take a cent but it always pays to make the offer ,

Cheers,
Billy K

Gotta agree with this statement. I usually say no thanks, but it shows some appreciation of the efforts of the boater. I have experienced one non-boater so far that has offered me nothing. He will never be offered to have a fish out of my boat. The only time will be if i am unfortunate enough to score him again. I would not have taken any money from him, but it would have been nice if he offered.

During the Walpole i had the pleasure of having Robert B on my boat on the Sat. He brought doughnuts, sandwiches and drinks. At the end of the day he also tried to offer me petrol money, which I refused. Robert knows he is welcome on my boat any time.

A little courtesy goes a long way.

Cheers

Mim

Boater - Non-Boater

Does the boater to non-boater assignement get changed from the first to the second day?

Is the PFD just to have one onboard the boat or do we have to wear at all time during the comp?

What's a good non-encumbering PFD? I usually wear a tackle vest for estuary fishing and not sure how I'm going to fit a PFD over that.

i dont think we need to wear pfd when fishing. only when under power of the main engine. so i think we can get awway with wearing a cheap pfd. but dont take my word for it. if someone wiser could clear this up it would be apreciated. because i really dont want to spend $60+ for a spiffy life vest, when my cheap yellow one does the same thing.

You can use the cheap yellow pfd's. They just don't make a fashion statement and are pretty uncomfortable to wear.

Yes the boater/non-boater assignment changes for the second day of the comp.

Hope that helps guys

Cheers

thanks for clearing that mim.

im gunna make an anti-fashion statement! hopefully it wont scare the fish away... wont be seeing me in flash columbia fishing apparel, mainly cause i cant afford it! and if i did id be tempted to rip the stupid tags off anyhow

u think there is room in fishing for an underground/subversive culture?
