Fish­ing up prizes

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By JEREMY SMITH

Not only are some great fish­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties up for grabs at Mata­mata Fish­ing Club’s De­cem­ber fish­ing tour­na­ment, but so is this im­pres­sive Massey Fer­gu­son ride-on lawn­mower worth $4500.

The tour­na­ment is open to club mem­bers, and when the mower win­ner is an­nounced, he or she must be there to claim it.

Among many other prizes is a Gil­trap Top­per worth $2000 and Massey Fer­gu­son has also do­nated more than$1000 of prizes.

Kevin Morey from Mata­mata Trac­tors and Ma­chin­ery said he loves fish­ing and his firm wanted the tour­na­ment to be a suc- cess, which is part of the rea­son they spon­sored the event and do­nated the ride-on mower.

‘‘If there is a good prize then it en­cour­ages more peo­ple to en­ter and makes it more ex­cit­ing.

‘‘The bet­ter the prize, the bet­ter the tour­na­ment.

‘‘Fish­ing is a great day out for the whole fam­ily. I find it so re­lax­ing to take my two boys, aged 8 and 5, out fish­ing. We all love it as it’s a great, fun fam­ily sport.’’

The De­cem­ber fish­ing tour­na­ment is open to club mem­bers and en­tries close next Tues­day. Contact Mata­mata Trac­tors and Ma­chin­ery for de­tails.
