Fishing Competition for SlowFest

fishingThe Slow Festival will, for the first time, host The Hookers SlowFish Competition as a fringe event. Corrie and Ana van der Have of Hookers Angling & Outdoor are inviting all keen, avid and recreational fishermen and women, youngsters and adults to come and enjoy some good fishing fun in the waterways around Sedgefield over Easter.

“Starting small and simple this year,” said Corrie, “the idea is for us to just have some simple fishing fun. Part of the proceeds will go towards funding the installation of dustbins around the many fishing spots of Sedgefield in a bid to keep our water, waterways and environment clean and the wildlife healthy.”

Entry forms and guidelines of the competition can be collected from the Hookers Angling and Outdoor shop in the Spar centre, Sedgefield. All participants will need to have valid and current permits to enter.

There are some great prizes up for grabs so be sure to enter sooner rather than later as entries are limited. For more information contact Corrie on 044 356 2760 or Anna on 083 347 1501.
