Preparations are in full swing for the 39th annual Horsham Fishing Competition next year with the contest committee employing a part-time co-ordinator to streamline organisation.
Angela Watson, who has an environmental management degree, said she was keen to work with the diverse group of people on the event’s community committee.
“I look forward to building on an event that is already successfully run,” she said.
“While ultimately it is a fishing competition – there are many more far-reaching outcomes from the event. The competition promotes Wimmera River health by significantly reducing the population of pest fish such as carp, it increases regional tourism and boosts the Wimmera economy for the weekend.
“Importantly, the competition also provides an opportunity for locals to attend a great family-friendly event.”
Contest secretary Adele Rohde said the committee had taken a proactive and professional approach to organising the contest.
“Angela will help the committee and take a lot of the pressure off the volunteers,” she said.
Mrs Rohde added that a major new development for the 2016 competition was the choice of a car, boat or camper van for the angler who won the event.
“In total there is more than $60,000 in prizes to be won with many prizes on offer in senior, junior and tiddler sections,” she said.
The competition will again have a major carp-catching section, offering significant prizes. Ms Watson said the carp section was an important element of the event.
