The 4th Fly Fishing event in aid of SAGA was held on Saturday, the 25th of August 2012 just outside Dullstroom at a private trout farm. This prestigious event was once again co-ordinated by Jonathan & Sarah Boulton from Mavungana Fly Fishing, and more than 35 entries were secured on the day. Every effort was made over the past 4 years to build this into a prestigious event, and the R30 000 sponsorship received from BOE Investment Brokers confirmed that. Thank you BOE for this valuable support – and thanks to all those who entered – all in the name of having fun for your favourite charity.
A huge thank you also goes to the various sponsors who pledged prizes for this event. After a very early start on the Saturday morning with glorious weather, all the anglers had a day of fun and enjoyment. Occasionally Pieter van Niekerk (Marketing Manager) had his hands full on the day, as O’Reilly wanted to participate in the event too – which most probably would have resulted into a few less eager anglers.
During the evening everyone was treated to a superb prize-giving function and very successful auction held at Walkersons. Congratulations to Melissa Marx – our youngest angler – who caught the winning trout on the day. Well done to Jonathan and Sarah, their marshalls and organizers, all sponsors and participants – I’m sure that this is to be followed by many more events in the years to come. For more information on how to become involved as a sponsor or an entrant for the 2013 event, please contact the Johannesburg Marketing office – the date is already set for 31 August with an amazing prize up for grabs namely an all expenses trip to fly fish with Jonathan Boulton at an international destination. Please don’t delay as the field is limited.
