Boats can be launched on the lake venues during the closed period but they must immediately be taken to their mooring point and should not travel more than 200m from their launching point if at all possible. PFDs (life jackets) must be worn in all boat sessions. PFDs are to be in current service date as required by Maritime regulations. Competitors are to provide their own PFDs and should not rely on boat owners to provide them. EMERGENCY PROCEDURES If a boat requires assistance oars must be held vertically. Other boats are requested to render assistance. In the event of an emergency on the lake mobile phones and radios can be used to obtain assistance but are strictly prohibited for any other purpose. As boats depart during the allocated steaming time prior to each session, NO PLANING is allowed in the first five minutes of departure.

Neither Fly Fish Australia Incorporated nor individual FFA CHAPTERS accepts any responsibility for any injury or loss incurred by any competitor, official or any participant or observer during the running of this competition or other events. All competitors are required to hold a valid state fishing licence. All State based competitions in this current environment must abide by the COVID based competition policy with respect to any competitions held in 2020. The Board of Fly Fish Australia is currently unable to determine the practicalities and fairness of allowing ranking points to accrue in 2020 given the impact of COVID -19 on competitions. Competitors need to note that competition ranking points may not be allowed in part or for the whole of the 2020 – 2021 competition year. In the event that one or more States are prejudiced , and unable to hold competitions, a determination will need to be made to ensure a fair outcome. This may include cancelling of Ranking Points.
