Due to the success and popularity of the ABT Hopkins River Bream Classic held in December 2005 a new and exciting Bream Fishing Tournament Series has been launched.
The series has been designed around the Australian Bream Tournaments (ABT) Classic format and held over three qualifying venues across Victoria, culminating with the top 30 teams reaching the Grand Final to be held on Gippsland"s Tambo & Nicholson Rivers in November 2006 to decide who are Victoria"s top Bream Anglers.
The Vic Bream Classic Series 2006 will give Victorian Bream anglers the chance to compete along side some of the best local and interstate anglers on some of the most picturesque waterways in Victoria.
Unlike standard ABT events where boaters and non boaters are randomly paired to compete for individual accolades, the Vic Bream Classic Series is a great introduction to the tournament angling circuit as it allows anglers to fish in a team with one other angler of their choice, in an attempt to weigh in 5 legal sized bream caught using lure or fly each day. This format creates a fantastic social feel to the weekend while still maintaining a high level of competition among teams.
If you and your friends have watched the AFC on Channel 10 and thought that it would be a great sport to get into, but didn"t know where to start then look no further as there is no better way to get a taste of competition angling than to grab a friend and enter your team in this years Vic Bream Classic Series.
You"ll be amazed at how much you learn from the other competitors and how many new friends you make, not to mention the thousands of dollars in cash and prizes that are up for grabs at each round.
