2 Bent Rods are the pest fishing event management experts, running events since 2008

We do all the hard work organising and running the comp making it stress-free
for you, freeing up your time for other projects. 2 Bent Rods expertise will shine through when you engage us for your council or company competition.

Does your area have a tilapia infestation?

We can help you to reduce their numbers whilst also educating and engaging your community in a family friendly pest fishing competition whilst fulfilling your GBO (General Biosecurity Obligations)Our evidence based data shows a sustained attack on a waterbody does have an impact.

We take a wholistic approach to our events. It’s not all about catching tilapia, there’s other aquatic animals and fauna to be mindful of as well. 2 Bent Rods works with local wildlife groups, clubs, businesses and the community and with all relevant stake holders to make theday a great success for all involved.

Went to the BCC one at Morningside run by Michael. Wonderful morning fishing experience and a great reason to get out of the house early morning! Me and my partner had an awesome time, thanks so much!

Great morning spent on "Beginners" session. Sam explained everything very well, making it easy to get started. This is a very good introduction for anyone who is not familiar with fishing.

We had a great morning with our three young kids at Kookaburra Park in Karrana Downs with 2 Bent Rods. The guys were friendly, easy going and full of knowledge and great advice. This was part of the Ipswich Active Parks Program so excellent value for money. Rods provided were good quality and easy to use. Thanks for a great fishing lesson guys!

Our small family have minimal skills with fishing but not a problem with Sam and her staff. We were provided with all the fishing gear to use and was guided from the basics. Sam is very lovely and knowledgeable about what she does. Sam and the staff were really helpful and encouraging. Thank you for the great experience!

A great afternoon with my son learning about fishing, and dad having a refresher. Solid educational discussions, Pumping for Yabbies, wetting lines and coming home with a flathead. Two thumbs from the little guy.

This is the most amazing experience me and my son have had. 2 Bent Rods ran my son's 9th birthday last weekend with his friends. There was nothing but huge smiling, happy faces 100% of the time. They are so professional and they honestly know how to keep all the boys entertained for hours. My son wants them again next year and every one of his friends want to do it all again. I honestly can not recommend this company enough. Thank you for making my son's birthday so awesome.

My daughter really enjoyed her first fishing experience with 2 Bent Rods yesterday. She caught a fish that was big enough to take home and eat. She learnt lots of new skills and had fun too. Sam and her team were patient, kind and very helpful with the children.
