Golden Classic 2016

Story by Murray Chapman

Mako were proud to sponsor this years Golden Classic, one of Australia's first and longest running catch and release fishing tournaments held each year at Windamere dam NSW.   

Over 200 anglers competed on the weekend in teams of 3, targeting Golden Perch.  With the dam at over 50% per cent capacity, most teams found it tough, with fish holding tight to the banks amongst heavy weed and fresh vegetation. 

Congratulations to Team Jackall, the 2016 Champion Team, Jamie Hardman, Harry Hardman and Matty Anderson who were presented the Steve Starling Champion Team Trophy by the man himself!  An amazing effort with their top ten fish averaging 58cm.
