Au­gust An­gling in Ped­die


The Au­gust out­ing for the Albany An­gling As­so­ci­a­tion (AAA) was held at the Mankayana Dam in the Ped­die Dis­trict, over the past week­end.

An­glers ar­rived to find the wa­ter dirty with a cool tem­per­a­ture of 13.5 de­grees. Th­ese fac­tors were due to the heavy rains days be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion. It was another one of those trips where some an­glers had every­thing go­ing their way, while oth­ers found the fish­ing tough.

The women’s sec­tion was won by Laura Nish with a bag of .550kg. The ju­nior sec­tion was won by Luke Brad­field from Port Al­fred, with a bag of .620kg. The heav­i­est fish of the day was landed by Dave Martin with a fish of 3,020kg. Daryn du Preez won the heav­i­est bag with a to­tal weight of 3.580 (which com­prised 3 fish). Dave Martin took se­cond place in the heav­i­est bag sec­tion, fol­lowed by Ed Han­nen in third with his 2.880kg bag.

Chair­man of the AAA, Quentin du Preez thanked all an­glers for their loyal sup­port “and to true spirit in which they fish th­ese com­pe­ti­tions. Again to the guys that travel from Port El­iz­a­beth, Ken­ton, Port Al­fred to at­tend th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties, a big thank you”.
