2019 Cod Classic Info

AYC Fishing and the Inverell Country Women’s Association have teamed up for a great charity event. The 2019 “No Cods” Ladies Cod Classic to be held at Reflections Holiday Park, Copeton Dam. The drought is hitting hard so we are pleased to announce “all profits will go to the C.W.A to help local farming families in need”. Our fantastic Sponsors have jumped on board in a big way supplying lots of products, they will also be at Friday Nights Dinner to teach you about Cod Tackle and Techniques.

It’s a simple format – the longest Cod wins. The winners will take home some amazing custom timber trophies by Mick Molnar Marine Art. All entrants receive a ticket into the lucky door prize where one lucky lady will take home $5000 in fishing tackle. Registrations are now open. Come along, have fun and support a great cause. If you enjoy chasing Cod and a good weekend away then this is the comp for you!

Need a Ride?

We understand some ladies may not have access to a boat but would love to fish the comp. Local Inverell Anglers, Sponsors and our AYC Tournament guys have generously offered to bring their boats along and guide you throughout the weekend, just Facebook message us or phone Bruce and we’ll do our best to organise a boat for you.

Boat Owners who would like to help out

 If you have a boat and would like to help out guiding our lady anglers at this great event please shoot Bruce a Facebook Message or give him a buzz on 0419 011 333.



Copeton Dam is Australia’s premiere inland murray cod fishery. It is famed among many anglers as a mecca for giant murray cod and its no surprise why, it is common to see multiple catches of those magic fish over the meter in a single session and also hosts a huge population of small to medium sized murray cod, fat golden perch, silver perch, redfin and eel-tail catfish.


This unique event is going to be very exciting and action packed as the best Murray Cod Lady Anglers in the country go head to head to battle it out for first prize. This can only be won by the team who catches the largest Murray cod for the 36hr session. The anglers will be casting or trolling hard to nail that monster from Friday night following the briefing through to 8am Sunday morning when we break for a catered breakfast. We will hold the presentation and then following this the giant raffle draws will commence. We finish off with the MEGA DRAW where one lucky Angler will win $5000.00 worth of fishing tackle and accessories.
