MEASURE & RELEASE

With the assistance from NZ Fishing News, Century Batteries Reel Legends Fishing Competition will be an exclusively measure/length-based fishing tournament. This format brings with it an abundance of benefits, at the forefront of which is providing a sustainable fishing tournament.

To enter a catch, the measure/length-based tournament requires anglers to photograph their catch on an approved measure mat where a measurement reading is visible. Your mat and instructions will be provided in your competition entry bag along with advice on how to release your fish back into the water. Once photographed and entered, participants can either keep or release the fish – it’s your choice but we promote release! All approved entries are submitted online, therefore, no standing round in lines waiting to weigh your fish, making for a simpler day of fishing for both anglers and officials.

Last but not least, all catches submitted to the Century Batteries Reel Legends Fishing Competition 2022 will automatically go through to the Export NZ Fishing Competition where they’ll be eligible for $20,000+ worth of additional prizes!
