Hi Everybody,

I would just like to congratulate all our anglers; Junior, Female & Male that have claimed State, Australian and World Records this year.

From all accounts it has been a very successful fishing year, judging by the 95 submitted records - with still a few pending.

The GFAA is very lucky to have one of the most experienced Recorder Weighmasters in the world, Peter Babarskas. Peter has for well over 20 years meticulously processed all of your submitted records, so Thank You P.B. I know everybody around Australia appreciates everything you do for the Sport of Game Fishing . Don`t  forget to Like us on Facebook.

Doug Sanderson, President GFAA
