The annual ‘Tim the Bream’ fishing competition was held at Ford Park, Yamba over the weekend, with ‘Tim’, managing to once again elude keen fishermen.
This is the third year that the Yamba Rotary Club has run the competition, with prizes for 11 tagged fish and six categories of ‘heaviest of species’, up for grabs.
Despite 343 registered entries in this year’s event, none of the tagged fish were caught.
The annual event is always popular with both the keen fisherman as well as family groups.
This year, competitors travelled from the Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Sydney and Armidale to take part in the event.
The Yamba Rotary Club wish to thank the community, DPI – fisheries and sponsors, for supporting this year’s event.
