18 teams have signed up for the 2012 Hinchinbrook Flyfishing Challenge and the 13th to 15th of September is getting closer all the time! Will the defending champions make it back-to-back titles? Or will there be some new kids on the flats?
The teams so far - As at 13 August 2012 there are few new names and some old. Let's hope team Beach-Slapped improves on their standing from last year.

Beach-Slapped - Dave Little and Marty Downing
Herbert Travelers - Daniel Collins and Raymond Delai

Hopefully there will be something a little special this year too, just to liven things up a bit. We are aiming to gift every competitor a club fly, for which there will be a special prize for a "secret species - secret length". Many thanks to Rodney 'Flyrod' Collings for driving this one!
Want any hints, and I really think you should talk to Richard S. I don't think he's open to bribery, but I'm sure that there is no harm in trying! ;-)
