Australian anglers can now get their latest mega fishing fix with the blockbuster 25th Anniversary Winter Edition of NAFA magazine. At a whopping 276 pages, this issue bursts out of its covers with spectacular action, location and fish images.

And as a bonus to celebrate our anniversary, there is a double whammy of competitions with thousands of dollars worth of prizes. In the first competition, run in conjunction with Shimano, readers have the chance to win one of 10 state-of-the-art Shimano rod and reel combos valued at $600 each. The second competition, run with JM Gillies, features 100 Classic lures, a Classic Lure Pro Shirt and a Plano 767 tackle box at an all up value of $1700.

NAFA 25 takes you to more locations, in more ways, to catch more species than ever. There is a special 14-page trilogy on Australia’s biggest freshwater fish, the Mighty Murray Cod, and you wont want to miss our Wild, Wet and Raw photographic feature.

Our team of specialist fishing and outdoor writers give you the low down on many more species and locations. We take you fishing for barramundi, flathead, bream, tailor, Spanish mackerel, golden snapper, marlin, Giant Trevally, tuna and trout.

There’s NAFA’s regular NT coverage with more than 50 pages, plus the latest in beach, rock, estuary, and boat fishing techniques, plus our tried and tested boat reviews. As a special feature we have a huge, in depth car fridge and ice-box guide.

Come on location with us to Maningrida in Arnhemland for our fabulous NAFA Good Gear Model shoot with Melanie Jade Ottaway, and some great sportfishing.

There are stories on remote outback rivers, and some not so remote places including Bali, NZ’s South Island, Hervey Bay, Adelaide River, Bullo River, Gippsland, and the remote Wellesley Islands.

NAFA’s OUTDOORS flip-over magazine on the back is now more then 60 pages action packed with stories and information about hunting goats, avoiding bushfires while offroading on Cape York, boat trailer maintenance and towing, and setting up a mountain bike for trailblazing fishing trips. We even venture into the more sedate world of Silver Gypsys with stories on slide on and conventional caravans, and tips and observations for long distance travellers. Sweetest of all is the visit to one of the Hunter Valley’s top wineries.

NAFA 25 has got the lot. Just ask any regular NAFA reader and without exception you’ll be told that this special magazine is the best-value fishing read in Australia by a country mile, the benchmark other magazines aspire to.
