Sports star of the week — Sylvie catches big fish

Sylvie Richards.

Young angler Sylvie Richards has a bright future ahead of her in the sport of angling.

She has been chosen for the Central North West team to compete in the Junior SA’s and National Trials.

The youngster has only been fishing since 2012 and is becoming a force to be reckoned with having already won a number of medals and trophies in her short career.

She believes the right bait goes a long way in helping to catch lots of fish.
