The BCF Topwater Film Invitational is a world first film competition

Created for the viewing pleasure of fishing, outdoor and adventure lovers worldwide to get a glimpse of what some of Australia’s favourite content creators can produce in a challenging time period of 14 days to travel, fish, film and edit.

In each of their films, they showcase The Great Barrier Reef in all its beauty and highlight issues that are important to them personally. Each of the team’s 20 minute films captures something different that is unique and personal to them.

The Reel Destinations Team are pushing the boundaries in how fishing TV shows should be seen with the highest level of production and TFI will be no exception.

The Reel Destinations team has been built around their knowledge of endless hours fishing and surfing the Great Barrier Reef, but just as importantly the team has been built around their incredible postproduction skill. From behind the camera to the edit room what these guys capture will be breathtaking!

The Mad Hueys

The Mad Hueys is about getting up in the morning and looking out the window and saying I’m the maddest Huey in this joint. No barney, no wave, no fish, no boat, no rod, no person, no party can stop us cause we run with the deepest pack in the business. And just incase you forgot what it was, it’s The Mad Fkn Hueys.

Founded in 2014 initially as an online fishing mag without any of the tackle industry bullsh*t, CAST quickly evolved into a quiet little powerhouse operating heavily across fishing media production, tackle production and merchandise sales. CAST is now a truly global brand operating out of both Australia and the USA, with online stores and brick and mortar tackle store distribution arrangements in both countries offering high quality, purposefully manufactured tackle and performance apparel designed for use across a range of fisheries globally.

CAST is a brand built on a true love and passion for sports fishing and adventure above everything else, we put the fishing itself and pushing positivity across our social platforms above everything else. We make no apologies about that and it’s never going to change, WE LIVE BY THE TIDES, always have, always will.
