It's a great cause and YHNSW fronted up in true Yak Hunters spirit!  Well done all!!!
Yakking Santas on Parade!

Did you see santa on the water in newcastle harbour last saturday 9th november? 

Thirty-four Santas from Yak Hunters Australia paddled for prostate cancer and mens health. 

A social fishing competition was run on the day with all entry fees donated to the Movember foundation, with the team raising a total of $755 on the day. 

Many fish were caught including flathead, bream, squire, and estury perch.  All fish were released, and the keen anglers won prizes donated by our proud sponsors Hot Tackle Toronto, Freddys Broadmedow, Supreme Lures Australia, Prolure Australia, Deez Nuts Lures, Gear Leashes Southwest Rocks, Hunter Water Sports Belmont, and Yak Hunters Australia. 

 Men are dying too young, and we can’t afford to stay silent. Mental Health, Suicide prevention, Depression, Testicular & Prostate Cancers are a few of the many things a lot of men struggle to come to reality or grips with. There is always a support network within our groups, plenty of Yak hunter brothers & sisters that you can turn to in times of need. We want to give back to all of you suffering silently, to let you know that we're here for you, whenever you need it.

Last year we raised just undder $1700 for Movember, so let's try and smash that next year!

“As survivor of prostate cancer, there are many things you have to cope with after this diagnosis, not only physical but mental ones as well, it’s good to have supportive mates and family around. So for a great cause Yak Hunters have my full backing.” 

A Yak Hunter NSW member said Yak Hunters Australia is a kayak fishing community who partake in weekend outings, charity events, and fishing competitions throughout the year. 

The goal of our organisation is to promote kayak based fishing, as well as sustainable fishing practices to help take care of our oceans and other waterways and all the creatures living within. No matter what state you are in, you will always find great advice, tips, and new friendships waiting for you.
