Cowboy Currie’s Whangaruru Stayaway 2019
What a weekend for our fun “icebreaker” tournament – Cowboy Currie’s Whangaruru Stayaway!! Awesome weather saw some 17 teams and 44 anglers head up to Whangaruru for the BBQ & drinkies on the beach. While the overall fish tally may have been small, it was definitely a case of quality over quantity!!
Once again the Lady anglers were to the fore with a tag and release Stripey estimated at 95kg to Wendy Robbins fishing on Riv One and another estimated at 115kg to Lisa Noble on Harlequin. Massive Congratulations to Shelbie Barrett fishing on Incommunicado who landed a beauty Blue Marlin weighing in at 230kg – for the second year in a row Shelbie took out the Steve Currie Memorial Trophy for the Angler Most Points Overall in the Whangaruru Stayaway.
A big thank to the Currie Family for their sponsorship, and special thanks to Keith and Chris Wellington for once again taking all the gear up to Whangaruru, cooking the BBQ and dealing with all of the “aftermath”.
