Fisher Catches $10,000 in South West
A fly fisher has struck gold at Lake Purrumbete near Camperdown, landing a $10,000 fish as part of the relaunched Golden Tag competition.
Minister for Fishing and Boating Melissa Horne said it was exciting to see the expanded competition was proving to be a drawcard for visitors to regional areas.
Melbourne’s Alex Georgopolous was the lucky fisher to score the $10,000 prize, landing the tagged brown trout in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Alex says he plans to spend his winnings on more fishing trips around regional Victoria, giving people in the country a helping hand after a tough year.
