The Great New Zealand Trout Challenge has been ticking along quite nicely since October 1st but here's a heads up, there's still plenty of prizes left in the pool to be won and your chances are looking really good for winning something, you just need to get your entries in.
We've teamed up with Hunting & Fishing NZ, Daiwa and Oakley bring you a fun and easy to enter fishing competition over this summer. All you need to do is download the Daiwa Tournament app from the app store, catch a fish, get of a photo of it next to a measuring tape and some product from one of the sponsors, and then upload it to the app.
It's super easy and with $20,000 worth of sponsor prizes you've got a great chance to win something for your efforts, especially with the mystery length categories where it pays to just be getting as many runs on the board as you can. Then we have the fun ones like the Kids section where we know they'll get into it as well as the Tidy Kiwi section where it's all about keeping our resource in tip top shape and being rewarded for it.
Here's a rundown of the categories you can enter:
- Longest Rainbow Trout
- Longest Brown Trout
- Longest Canal Trout
- Mystery Length Rainbow Trout
- Mystery Length Brown Trout
- Tidy Kiwi
And if you're planning on releasing the fish then please follow the best fish handling practices you can while getting the measurements.
The competition wraps up on January 31st so there's heaps of time over summer to be chipping away at it and getting your entries in.
