2021 SADSAA Bottom Fish Nationals

Sunday 11 October 2021

Opening Function

This week Suidpunt Deepsea Angling Club is hosting the Bottom Fish Nationals competition. A great deal of effort goes into preparing for a tournament such as this and the organizing committee has done an awesome job.

Last night we had the opening function at the club. The most delicious spit-roasted lamb was served along with some awesome side dishes.

I have posted photographs in this report and captioned them with names of those that I know and as soon as I can I will add those that I do not.
