Barpa sponsors Girls Gone Fishin team the Slippery Gypsies

May 29, 2019

Barpa has once again sponsored our ‘fishing mad’ Northern Territory Contracts Administrator Leila Bartolo and her team the ‘Slippery Gypsies'.

Leila was kind enough to send us a report back on how they went… “Well I’m back from a long weekend spent at the Daly River NT undertaking the Girls Gone Fishin’ tournament and what can I say… it was harrdddd work!” Girls Gone Fishin is a women’s fishing competition held annually in the Northern Territory at the Daly River. Each team consists of 3 female anglers and 1 male skipper. Leila says that they had to overcome trying conditions with fish at a premium! “I eventually managed to land a 75cm and another 40-something with half an hour to go before lines out! This got us a total of 145 points for the tournament which landed us in 8th place overall as a team and I finished 5th individual angler score overall out of 158 anglers.” “To finish in the top 10 teams in any fishing tournament is a great achievement and the goal that any team going into a tournament hopes to achieve. Thank you to Barpa for your sponsorship which is helping us pay to attend these competitions (and replace all the lures we lose!). “ Well done to Leila and team in trying conditions!!
