My name is Sylvie, I am 13 years old and I am passionate about “fishing”.
I was introduced to Freshwater Bank Angling, at the age of 5 years old, after being diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, poor motoring skills and learning difficulties.
What started for me as therapy and a hobby quickly became very competitive after I made my mark by setting a few records during club competitions.
I have achieved provincial colours and made the National team u13 Young girls, the second time this year.
I need funds to cover the following:
As per the 2019 angling calendar, there are 10 National competitions that will be compulsory for meto attend due to National & Provincial colours.
Accommodation: most National competitions are of 2 days over the week end & the angler needs to stay close to the fishing venue - R 15, 000 per year
Materials and other baits, rigs required for the competition : equipment does go faulty and breaks due to wear and tear / baits and rigs needs to be replenished as per National standards prior to competitions – R7, 000.00 per year
Correct competition attire for the respective tournaments: different tournaments required different clothing: Provincial and / or National – R7, 000.00 per year
Petrol for travelling to the fishing venues: most of the competitions take place around the Vaal dam areas (1hr30mins from JHB), as well as Bloemhoff (4hrs from JHB) – R9,000.00
Food / refreshments for the angler: lunch + dinner – R7,000.00 per year
Yearly registration fees and competition fees for the angler: R5,000.00 per year
I am reaching out to the public who would be willing to support me and help me to reach my dreams of becoming a National South African Protea Angler in the near future.
