State Beach and Rock Winner Wagoe Beach Tales

Post by Ross Compe » Fri Sep 18, 2015 5:37 am

We are always looking for stories about the State and National events and I have managed to locate another one.
This is the first hand account written by myself many years ago while fishing with a young Paul at Wagoe Beach during the State Beach and Rock Angling Championships.
Paul won the event and became the State Beach and Rock Open Individual Winner adding to his State Junior Beach and Rock Individual Title won a couple of years earlier.
I'm glad I gave him a lift and the opportunity to compete. Sort of well maybe... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Convention Officers Angling Club

Post by Ross Compe » Sat Oct 24, 2015 8:21 pm

Probably the most prestigous and exclusive angling club in Australia is the Convention Officers Angling Club.
Membership is restricted to members of the Federal Executive of the Australian Anglers Association.
The Federal Executive is the very top of the power base of the National body of the Australian Anglers Association.
That is the National President,Secretary General ( a position I was proud to serve as) and the National Treasurer.
Conventions are held every 2 years by the association on a State rotational basis.
National Championships are part of these Conventions as are the meetings and business of the asssociation which are attended by all States and their Presidents,State Secretaries and State Captains.
Having hosted a National Championships and Convention means that a office bearer is eligable for membership to the Convention Officers Angling Club.
Very exclusive as state rotation means one may have the opportunity to become a member of the Federal Executive
if succesful in nomination every dozen years or so.
Often this is once in a lifetime opportunity and before the formation of Recfish the most powerful office of angling in Australia.
Yes! The Convention Officers Angling Club do have their own competitions and due to distance and travel this may only occur every 2 years and generally coincides with the National Championships.
All States are usually represented and even though experience and age often go hand in hand I can assure the interstate rivalry and spirit of competition is only matched by the bond shared by the best of the best.
Don't be fooled and think these Presidents and State Secretaries are only pen pushers as they have usually done the lot before they arrived at that position.
Tough mob they are and fiercely parochial.
Inner sanctom and the very heart of the Australian Anglers Association and recreational angling in Australia.

State Boat Angling Championships AAA

Post by Ross Compe » Tue Apr 11, 2017 12:50 pm

Mandurah has had plenty of action of late with the hosting of the State Boating Angling Championships.
Strong winds around 18knots tested everyone with 90 boats and 38 competitors offshore.
Most anglers fished for smaller species early with mixed results with Garfish,Skippy and Herring.
Winners are grinners they reckon with Mitch Hillary grabbing the mens event with 8 species and 152.2 points.
Ladies trophy went to Ruby McGrady 16.8 pointsand Rob Weir snatched veterans with 73.7 points.
Junior winner was Mitch Hillary who has a bright future ahead of him in the open events as he continues to impress.
Great stuff
:D :D :D

Post by Ross Compe » Sun May 27, 2018 12:38 pm

AAA celebrated in style at the Mt Lawley Sportsmens Club in June with their trophy night and congradulations are extended to them and the winners and organizers. :idea: :idea:
Teams were difficult to fill for some clubs with Minis,Juniors and Ladies events seeking more participation.
Western Australias oldest club the Fremantle Angling Club have made a tremendous come back in the last few years and were rewarded with the coveted Club of the Year trophy.
Interestingly both Carolyn and John Bennimen fished with Fremantle and scored with the Ladies event and Runner Up Mens Open.
The big winner was Daniel Bell representing the Ocean Reef Sea Sport Club.
Daniel was rewarded with the trophy for the Open Event. 8) 8) 8)
The event is for their efforts in a variety of angling competitions during the course of the year that include Dry Casting,Beach and Rock ,Boating and Estuary.
Well done to all those involved.It is truly a demanding series of competition and always produces true champions.
8) 8) 8)
