The 2017 Leigh Fishing Contest raised $60,000 for the vital Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and other local causes, and was our most successful event to date.

Coming up to its 15th year, the event goes from strength to strength, with nearly $300,000 raised for the rescue helicopter and other emergency services over this time. Last year the event topped 1000 anglers for the first time and we hope to be a regular fixture on your fishing calendar for years to come.

100% of proceeds are donated to the rescue chopper and other Leigh local community causes. In 2017 over $60,000 was raised for these causes thanks to the participation of our wonderful sponsors and generous participants on the day.



Great fishing, lots of fun! and great prizes up for grabs!
All while supporting the Westpac Rescue helicopter.
