Surfcasters can reel in a big prize on Sunday, January 27, at the Amberley Beach Surfcasting competition.

The 26th event, run by the Amberley Lions Club, will run from 8am to 3pm, with excellent prizes for successful fishers. There will be a prize for all children who enter, and spot prizes based on registration numbers.

Everyone is welcome to take part in what has become one of the most popular family events in North Canterbury.

Tickets can be pre-purchased from Arthur Burke, Amberley; Hamills, Rangiora; and the Fisherman’s Loft, Christchurch, for $25 an adult and $5 for children under 13.

Otherwise, they can be bought at competition headquarters at the beach on the day.

There will be a coffee cart and raffles. No dogs and no vehicles on the beach.
