Fishing with the Stars
Congratulations are in order for ladies fishing member Vicky Bell, one of the main organisers of the invite only event Fishing with the Stars at Sweethope Loughs yesterday, raising money for Grace House Children’s Hospice. The event was well attended with celebrities from the TV, world of fishing and rod manufacturer/co-sponsor Hardy Greys.
For the mornings fish I was grandly entertained by businessman and trout catcher Alec from Scotland, who wanted to know where Trish was (you were missed Trish!). Alec was impressed with the variety of events we are organising and donated a life vest and river nets to be used on events for ladies who don’t have any equipment, what a nice chap!
After a delicious lunch, cooked by Sweethope’s chef it was back out for the afternoon fish. I was lucky to fish with a celebrity, our very own Paul Little. The wealth of knowledge from Paul on boat fishing is amazing. With Paul I caught my only fish of the day, a 53cm trout and came a respectable 18th place.
One of the up and coming stars of the day was distance caster and level 2 coach, Richard Wood who came 2nd winning £700.00 worth of Hardy Greys vouchers, well done Richard.
Congratulations to Vicky for organising another fabulous event. Vicky and I are currently working on a Newcastle ladies fishing event to be announced soon.
