Street fishing in Groningen
No less than 150 angling fanatics came together in Groningen on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November, battling for victory in the first ever edition of Freestyle Live. This new competition was organised by Spro Freestyle, Franks Angeltouren and Sportvisserij Groningen Drenthe.
On Saturday participants fished in predetermined zones within a 5 to 30 kilometer radius around Groningen, before the competition moved to the city centre on Sunday. All of the participants – from countries including Switzerland, the UK, Germany and the Netherlands – managed to catch fish. The winner of this fun and above-all friendly competition was Team Roofmeister, comprised of Bart van de Walle and Jeroen Elzinga. In second place was Team Wiekenzocker and Team Rock the Tock came third.
The organisers were delighted with the success of the first ever Freestyle Live. A second edition will take place next year. Jeroen Elzinga (left) and Bart van de Walle (Team Roofmeister) were the winners of the first edition of Freestyle Live.
