Fortune goes for first and wins first KSFA singles match

26/01/2014 17:24

Amid threats of Gale force winds and inclement weather today ushered in the first singles match of the much coveted KSFA singles league which was held in Manoel Island.  It turned out to be a sunny day with moderate winds after all!


It started early in the morning at the break of dawn, with all the anglers eager to do well and get off to a good start. At 0700 sharp the horn was sounded and one could hear the swish of the lines being cast in the sea in perfect harmony.


Some 27 anglers took part stretching along the whole coastline. Various fish were landed mostly wrasse parrot fish and a not so common fish in these matches Pajzan.


First place was taken by the excellent Fortune Calafato with no less the 2.66Kg Pajzan, he was at the edge of the venue where the wind was most severe which was all the more difficult making his victory even more deserved. 

Following in second place was Kevin Cassar with a good brace of parrot fish at 2.63kgs; he read his peg well and rigged a rod specifically for parrot fish. 

Third place was Mark Zarb new comer landing a good 2.2kgs with a variety of bottom fish, I have a feeling Mark will go a long way.


Full results to follow.

Next match will be on 10th February at ta Fra Ben, which should also prove to be another prolific venue.
