Australian Female Billfish Tournaments
Miss Marlin – Hervey Bay Game Fish Club – October 2020 Hervey Bay Queensland Australia
Ribbons Ladies Game Fishing Tournament – December 6th – 8th Cairns North Queensland Australia
Fun, fishing & friendship! This is Australia’s biggest women’s game fishing tournament of the year. Affiliated with QGFA Queensland Game Fishing Association. At a social function prior to a fishing tournament in 1983, a group of adventurous women came up with the idea of running a tournament for women only. Thus giving them the opportunity to experience what was seen as a predominately male recreational pastime.
The seed was sown. The idea of Ribbons grew to reality and the first-ever tournament was held on December 1984. The undoubtedly overwhelming response from keen women anglers has seen this tournament grow from humble beginnings to one of the highlights on the Cairns fishing calendar. Entrant numbers (as many as 46 boats and 160 anglers in one year) rival those of dual-gender tournaments such as the Lizard Island Classic and the Townsville Billfish Challenge.
