Pam Eric wins Open fishing competition
Pam Eric won Vodacom Latham Open Fishing Competition 2007 in Sinda Island in Indian Ocean, Dar es Salaam.
Pam won the title after catching a 61.5 kg sail fish to beat other 80 opponents who were also in the race.
Jason Alexiou was named the winner of the most trivially giant catcher. He caught a 29kg fish.
The competitors used 16 boats in a two-day fishing competition sponsored by Vodacom Tanzania.
Alexiou said that this year`s event was very tough because it attracted most experienced competitors.
`The fishing climate was unfavourable because we had to go far to catch the fish,` he said.
Vodacom Head of Communications and Sponsorship Ephraim Mafuru said that his firm was happy to sponsor the event for the third year running.
The competition which started on Saturday at the Dar es Salaam Yacht Club was closed by Vodacom Managing Director Dietlof Mare who awarded winners in the different categories.
