2015 Secret Women’s Business Barra Challenge

THE 2015 Secret Women’s Business Barra Challenge (SWB) is gearing up for another year of fishing, friendships and fun.

This year’s tournament is being held on 18 and 19 September 2015 and Expressions of Interest for entry into the tournament are now being accepted. This annual event, now in its 9th year, is all about forging new friendships, rekindling old ones, and of course, doing some serious fishing.

SWB is an all women, catch, tag and release, fishing tournament targeting barramundi and saratoga. Women of all skill levels take part in this nationally recognised tournament from novices to skilled anglers.

The fishing can be tough but on the spectacular Corroboree Billabong, no one seems to mind. For two days the billabong is abuzz with excitement as the ladies wait patiently to hook the elusive barramundi and when that tell-tale “boof” rings out across the water the anticipation of whether or not that fish will make it into the boat hits fever pitch. While this is certainly a competition with everyone vying for the coveted title of Champion Team there is also a great sense of camaraderie. Other titles include Champion Runner-Up Team, Champion Angler, Biggest Barra and Biggest Saratoga.

SWB continues to hold a 5 star NEATFish accreditation something which organisers Christina Hurren and Kristen Noble are proud of. They are committed to preserving the environment and keeping the fisheries healthy and strong. All barramundi caught during the tournament are tagged before being released to assist NT Fisheries with their research.

The fun is not just restricted to the water though! Back at base camp at Corroboree Park Tavern there is entertainment and activities each night for everyone to enjoy. One thing is for certain, there is never a dull moment at SWB.
