Kingfish & Downriggers


When: Wednesday 1st November 2017

A lucky few CH Smith customers attended our Kingfish & Downrigger Masterclass, where they had the opportunity to learn from the best in the biz.

Presenters on the night were pro fishermen Gawaine Blake (Frogleys Pro & Garmin Pro staff) and Shaun Clancy (Cannon and Minn Kota).

Also on hand was Shaun's 1965 Minn Kota CDR Electric Motor, which he'd faithfully restored. Incredible to see how far the range has come along over 80 years of innovation. All in all it was a great night – with everyone walking away better informed and ready to net some kingfish!
