Gone Fishing Day October 18th

The Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation’s flagship national event Gone Fishing Day is nearly upon us. You can use Gone Fishing Day’s new app and participate in the national event.


The 2020 Gone Fishing Day app can be downloaded from the official Apple iOS app store and the Google Play store. Or you can download the Android version to your phone from Gone Fishing Day’s web server Gone Fishing Day Android Download. The Android link has a short tutorial with pictures explaining how to install the app. Please read the short tutorial and then scroll to the bottom of the page and select the DOWNLOAD button to begin the process. The process is only slightly more involved than the usual way of installing a new app on your phone, taking an additional 10 seconds.


Just remember there are some great prizes to be won on the day. All you have to do is be registered on the Tackle Box App to be in the running for the following random prizes to be drawn every 5 minutes - $20 BCF instant gift cards or Shimano apparel from 6am - 6pm on the day. Prizes supplied courtesy of ARFF and Shimano.
