Let's tackle rural mental wellbeing!

The Bayer Big Fish Challenge is a friendly fishing competition for teams of rural Australians to raise awareness and funds in support of rural mental wellbeing. Bayer is donating $1 dollar per centimetre of the largest fish of each type caught by each team to our charity partner - The Fly Program. Now in its fourth year, teams competing in the Bayer Big Fish Challenge have already raised more than $100,000.

“When I heard about the Bayer Big Fish Challenge, it took me two seconds to get on board. To be able to go out and fish for mental health, it is easy to get around that. It’s great to have people in our communities that are able to facilitate this kind of program,” said Dean Hartley, a farm manager in Victoria.

Hundreds of men and women across Australia are already involved and whether you’re a weekend warrior, only fish once a year or you simply want to do your part for a good cause, you’re welcome to join in. 

As well as supporting rural mental health over this year-long program, you may also snag one of the fifty instant win prizes, or perhaps you’ll land a seat on the hotly contested all expenses paid annual winners’ weekend. 

There are plenty of reasons to join the Bayer Big Fish Challenge!
