Namibia: First Pro Angling Tourney a Great Success

THE first Rock and Surf Super Pro League (RASSPL) angling tournament in Namibia took place on February 25.

RASSPL Namibia is a franchise of RASSPL South Africa, organising between four and six angling tournaments a year where many prizes can be won in various categories.

The first tournament was held between the shipwreck outside Henties Bay and the first houses of Henties Bay.

Despite unfavourable weather the anglers had good catches and by 15h00 everybody had handed in their measuring charts and were ready for the prize-giving ceremony at the De Duine Hotel.

The top angler of the day was Hennie du Plessis. Louis Potgieter won a Penn reel for the biggest spotted shark; Johan Van Zyl won a Fin-Nor reel for the largest kabeljou and Chris Botha won a boat trip from Ocean Adventure for catching the second-largest kabeljou.

The largest and second-largest galjoen were both caught by Hennie du Plessis, netting him a N$2 000 voucher from De Duine Hotel en a free wheel alignment from by Tyre Corporation Swakopmund.

Many of the prizes stood over for the next competition on May 4.
