Join with us in destination Cairns as we celebrate 50 years of Sportfishing in Australia!

At the Aussie Sportfisher Conference 2017, we celebrate the 50 year anniversary of  the Australian National Sportfishing Association

The Aussie Sportfisher Conference 2017 is a week long event including a Conference, Expo, Fishing Competition and Fishing Expedition designed to gather together like-minded anglers so we can all enjoy and celebrate 50 years of Sportfishing in Australia.

Our enduring motto of Sport, Conservation and Integrity in fishing will shine through as central themes in the all opportunities and experiences on offer for you to enjoy during this great week.

This is an event not to be missed for anyone who has been involved with ANSA and the Sportfishing movement in the past,  the present and into the future to join in the celebration of Sportfishing in Australia.

The week long event in Tropical Cairns, North Queensland (the birthplace on ANSA and Sportfishing in Australia) will kick off with an informal barefoot yobbos BBQ on Friday 22nd September 2017 at the Figtree, Tanks Art Centre, Cairns.

This will be followed on Saturday and Sunday by a two day conference and Sportfishing Expo at Tank 3, Tanks Arts Centre. A formal dinner is also being arranged for the Saturday evening.

Of course, no Sportfishing event would be complete without fishing! This 50 year bash is no different.

On Monday, conference attendees can stay on to enjoy a fishing competition alongside Cairns locals in the new Cairns Net Free Zone encompassing Trinity Inlet and Barron River.

If one day of fishing isn't enough (and we couldn't agree more), a 4 day fishing expedition to Hinchinbrook Channel is on offer from Tuesday 26th to Friday 29th September, with the weekend then available to make your way back home.

Pencil these dates in your calendar and start making plans for Aussie Sportfisher Conference 2017 today!
