    CHIREDZI – South Africa emerged the winners against hosts Zimbabwe and Namibia at the President`s Test Annual Bass Fishing competition held at Mteri Dam in Hippo Valley from Sunday to Friday last week.
    The South African team which scored 231,89 points was followed by Zimbabwe on 217,85 points and Namibia came last on 91,72 points. The biggest fish weighed 4,5kgs.
    South African team captain Pieae vo Meruve said he was impressed by his team`s performance which managed to defeat Zimbabwe at home. This came as sweet victory against Zimbabwe which used to dominate the event in the past.
    Meruve hailed the reception and venue of the competitions which he described as one of the best that he has come across during his sporting life.
    "South Africa came into the tournament very excited and winning against Zimbabwe is quite good since Zimbabwe has been winning against us regularly. We will be meeting again in Mozambique. The reception we received starting right from the border up until we got here is fantastic and we always love to come to Zimbabwe. We will be back at this venue in the near future" said Meruve.
    Zimbabwean Captain Grant Amm said fishing at Mteri this year has been fantastic and Zimbabwe gave South Africa a good run for their money. He hoped that Zimbabwe was going to beat South Africa at home during next year`s world competitions.
    He said the economy is hindering the development of fishing as a sport in Zimbabwe.
