Casting Cowboys Fishing review the Barra Bash


" Frenchville Barra Bash 2018 completed, what can we say, wow what a comp run by fishos for fishos. Have to be one of the most fun fishing weekends we have had with such a professional approach by the guys behind it.

Fishing was definitely tough with the conditions less than favourable with a lot of teams coming up empty handed for the weekend.

53 teams with 194 barras boated and 89 king salmon. This just shows Fitzroy is an amazing river system and with the net free zones is only going to get better. Who said barra don’t bite in winter 😉
Happy with our results with not have fished the river in a little over 12 months and still catching fish and getting up in the standings. Congratulations to the boys that took out top honours was a credit to Col Brett and Mick Slade made for excelling in tough conditions making for a great comp.

Thanks to the guys that support us Kietech/ Kistler rods and Infish lures with most of your fish falling victim to the Inkfish vibe or Predator Prawn.

Stoked to have landed ourselves another Kistler rod for the boat out of the tournament prizes.
Anyone wanting to get into the barra scene and have a great weekend definitely keep your eyes open for the Barra Bash next year you won’t be disappointed..."
