Aint Seen Nothing Yet
the option4 team
Or so the song goes. After witnessing
the Chesters Plumbing Supplies Fishing Contest for a number of years
it is obvious how much effort has gone into educating participants
on how to look after caught fish.
On a hot afternoon in mid
February there was a steady stream of people weighing in their catches
from as far away as Great Barrier and even the Ranfurly Banks.
Chillybins of varying sizes
were full of ikied and iced fish with the ultimate being a bin containing
none other than a live snapper!
The fish was in prime condition
as a battery-powered pump had aerated the water it was swimming
in. Needless to say the fish was in amongst the prizes for the ‘best
kept fish' award.
Chesters have been running
the contest for seventeen years and have again proved how valuable
they are in their support for recreational fishers. At the end of
the contest both option4 and the Manukau Coastguard received substantial
donations from Grant Chester the owner of Chesters Plumbing Supplies.
