HOFC Proserv Ellevi Singles League 1st Match held at Marsascala 'Zonqor' Point.
Tubertini Boy Sheldon Bouvett shines in the opening match
Today it was a great start for the Ellevi Proserv HOFC Singles league. With a solid participation of 15 anglers and 3 marshalls all well prepared to start this much awaited singles league.
Venue chosen for the first match was Zonqor, and the day looked quite nice from the very early hours with just a low south easterly breeze. Match started early at 6.10am and competitors were divided into 3 different sections.
It was clear evident that good weights were going to be registered on the day. All anglers looked quite busy from the start of the match as it was parrot fish the main target for the day. Infact it was a total of more than 28 kilos registered fish caught in this match which were all kept alive and released back to their natural habitat after the match.
Sheldon Bouvett from Tubertini managed a good solid 6 opening points and top position on the podium, followed closely by Lawrence Pulis also from Tubertini / Ellevi in second place which was also competing in the same section. Marlon Tanti also from Tubertini placed 3rd on the day with a good 6 starting points in section B followed by Michael Godfrey who did quite well with a section win in his section.
The other section was won by Adrian Nelson who was fishing the last peg in section C. Brady Sammut also did a good job in this last section. He managed some very nice sized parrot fish in the final 30 minutes of the match but were not enough to earn him the full 6 points as he had to settle for 5 points. Next Section win was clinched by Peter Paul Azzopardi.
Well done to all participants for the sense of sportsmanship being practiced, the marshals and main sponsors Proserv and Ellevi for this year’s sponsors. With refreshments supplied by General Soft Drinks & additional trophies by Fieldsports & Biggest fish trophy by Tubertini Malta.
