Hi Kurt,
The best tip I can give (which is standard practice) is to shout every a beer at the pub at each event for the first year.

If you cannot crack it as a non-boater buy a Hobie hahahaha

Being able to fish 9 event's in nsw and a couple in qld is the reason why I went the hobie option not the lack of skill's to be a non-boater or a boater for that matter.I may still do the main game as a non boater if time allows for the nsw round's.
Thank's for your incite.

Being a first timer as well this year I have a few question as well please.
1. Entry forms for the basin and Clyde rounds? - every link I click on says "not available"
2. Starting locations for the above two rounds and Burrill lake

Thanks
Nick
