SA Bass - - News - Ben­nie Wiese / Ed­i­tor

Un­be­liev­able! It is the last month of 2016 and what a year it has been. First of all the an­nounce­ment of FLW USA sanc­tion­ing FLW bass tour­na­ments in South Africa and what great news this was. It means that two teams (four an­glers) qual­ify at next year’s FLW South Africa Cham­pi­onship to par­tic­i­pate at the Costa FLW Se­ries Cham­pi­onship next year Novem­ber in the USA.

How many of our lo­cal an­glers are dream­ing about fish­ing that side of the world and now it will be pos­si­ble, just en­ter and qual­ify through our SA BASS Cast-for-Cash monthly qual­i­fy­ing rounds for en­try to the FLW SA Cham­pi­onship. It is easy en­ter, qual­ify and win this side and four of the SA an­glers will be liv­ing the dream.

Se­condly con­grat­u­la­tions to Team Blue Wa­ter Gear for win­ning the 2016 Cast-for-Cash Cham­pi­ons-of-Cham­pi­ons. Well done to Frans and Lesley! They are one year too early for the USA trip but we look for­ward to the new sea­son. (See our tour­na­ment re­port in this is­sue.)

Thirdly Cast-for-Cash Lim­popo an­glers have has done it again! They proved to be the top com­pet­i­tive Cast-for-Cash re­gion for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year at this year’s Cham­pion-of-Cham­pi­ons. Those an­glers who thought they are go­ing to slip away and com­pete in “eas­ier” prov­inces will have to re­think their strat­egy.

Fourthly well done to the Protea Bass Team with the sil­ver medal they have won in Por­tu­gal at the Black Bass World Cham­pi­onship. It clearly shows that our South African an­glers are very com­pet­i­tive, given the op­por­tu­nity.

This is­sue is loaded with won­der­ful ar­ti­cles to guide our read­ers in the art of bass fish­ing over the fes­tive sea­son and in sum­mer con­di­tions. This is a time that mem­o­ries are made when peo­ple en­joy the com­pany of fam­ily and friends. It is even bet­ter when you meet on, or next to the wa­ter. Please don’t for­get to send your pictures for in­clu­sion in our Read­ers-go-Bassing section. We are look­ing for­ward to hear from you.

Lastly, we at SA BASS wish all our read­ers a very blessed and Merry Christ­mas. May you all ex­pe­ri­ence hap­pi­ness, peace and when you are on the roads, travel safely.
