Australia has become the 17th country in the world to sign an agreement to compete in US-based Major League Fishing (MLF) tournaments.

Hiqua Fishing, a new pioneering force in Australian tournament angling, will run a series of competitions as part of the MLF International Division in the MLF Toyota Series Championship this year. MLF Australia will operate under the direction of Jan Oosthuizen, CEO of Hiqua Fishing.

“MLF Australia is excited to work with MLF and to be involved in the growth and expansion of Australian fishing,” said Oosthuizen. “Hiqua Fishing is thrilled to be at the forefront of the transformative new venture, offering a tournament experience that goes beyond the ordinary and adding to the country’s magnificent fishing platform.”

“We are excited to add Australia to the growing list of countries that are offering MLF tournaments,” said Dave Washburn, MLF Vice President Operations. “MLF Australia will be the ultimate platform for Australian anglers to showcase their skills on a global stage and we look forward to the addition of talented Australian anglers to the MLF family in 2024.”
