KFDU Anglers of the Year for 2015

#1 Post by butts » Sun Jan 03, 2016 1:19 am

Hello Everyone in KFDU land

On the behalf of TEAM KFDU we would like to announce the winners of the KFDU Saltwater Angler of the Year 2015 and the KFDU Freshwater Angler of the Year 2015.

Like in past years it has been very difficult to single out just one member that has shined above all of the other contributing members, but I think you will all agree that these anglers really attribute to what this sport is all about. We would like to thank them both for letting us join in with their experiences throughout the year and we can only hope that they continue to do so in the future.
Their contributions to KFDU throughout the year have been outstanding and thanks again for letting us share in your kayak fishing adventures.

Will you all please join us in congratulating the KFDU Anglers of the Year for 2015

Saltwater Angler of the Year is Jamie D

And ….

Freshwater Angler of the Year is Tiny Torpedo

Congratulations to you both.

Well done to both Saltwater & Freshwater Anglers of the year. Enjoyed all that you both have contributed to the forum. Keep it going. :wink: For those who do not know Tiny Torpedo is my wife.

Incredibly humbled , in a forum of such focussed and passionate anglers to received the tip of the hat. Thanks firstly to the KFDU team who run such a wonderful forum , perfect for anglers who love and cherish the sport , thanks so very much .

Special mention to the KFDU offshories for being a great spread of characters and personalities. Thanks also to Tommie and Yaqdog , who both allowed me to stay in their homes whilst in Coffs harbour to enjoy great fishing , hospitality in the form of shared information and fanning the flames of passion for the love of Offshore fishing , and all the videos and reports shared with us all over the years.

Hugest thanks go to my Friend and Mentor , Chris AKA the Carnster , for sharing the love of the sport with me in the form of knowledge , patience whilst I learned and most importantly friendship which is what makes KFDU so special .

Humble and Grateful thanks to all anglers on KFDU :bye:
