SAMDPR - Fishing Competition

On Friday the 3rd of February, during the race week, we are planning to host a fishing competition on the banks of the Vaal River adjacent to the lofts. It’s a safe, fenced area teeming with Barbel, Carp, Yellow fish and Bass. This will be a great way to not only socialise with your fellow fanciers and enjoy the natural beauty of the river banks, but also compete for the title of the 1st SAMDPR Fishing Competition Winner.

The competition will start at approximately 8am and go on until 2 pm, 50 fishing spots will be available along the demarcated area.

Cold drinks and a light meal will be provided for participants as well as bait to fish with.

Mr. Willi van Beers, our pigeon trainer, is the facilitator and will also be judging the catch of the day.

The heaviest fish caught will be judged the winner of the trophy.
