“This season has been a challenging one for us. But nonetheless, our members responded with a positive attitude as they put in more time and hard work to assist in the restoration of our fisheries. We are now bearing the fruits of this and 2019 promises to be an even better year,” said NBAA’s Chairman, Richard Grant.

The final Bank Windhoek National Angling Competition for 2018, also played a pivotal role in the team selection of the anglers that will be representing Namibia at the Region V and World Black Bass Championship tournaments in 2019.

“To be nominated is a big honour and anglers work hard throughout the year to be selected for these teams,” said Grant.
“NBAA would like to thank Bank Windhoek for its ongoing support throughout this year. We look forward to having the Bank on board once again in 2019,” concluded Grant. –
