Sharkey attempts to catch big threadfin

What Happens Next catching big threadfin?

For those of you unfamiliar with this segment, “What Happens Next” is a time for us to give stuff back to our wonderful supporters and have a bit of fun giving goodies away.

In this clip, our protaganist Sharkey is having loads of trouble catching a metre plus threadfin.

An accomplished fisherman, Sharkey has caught just about every fish imaginable, yet a big thready alludes him.

Watch the clip to the end and when it stops, have a guess What Happens Next and leave your guess in the comments below.

All correct entries will go in the draw to win a pair of Spotters Cristo sunglasses drawn 15th December 2014.

IF YOU ARE USING FACEBOOK TO COMMENT YOU MUST USE THE HASTAG #whathappensnext or we will be unable to track your entry.

Remember no spaces in the hastag phrase.

To guarantee notification if you win, we suggest you join our fishing community using your name and email in the box below.

OK, without further ado, follow Sharkey’s exploits and have guess at what happens next. Oh and there may be some consolation prizes for the most inventive and imaginative entries so let your imagination run wild.

We will be announcing the winner and posting the video answer to What Happens Next right here on the blog 15th December 2014.

Postscript – we have a winner.

The answer to the what happens next comp is revealed in the following video.

Yes Sharky got his Holy Grail by landing the metre plus threddy!

Of all the correct entries, a winner was randomly chosen and that winner is Craig Delany.

Two consolation prizes of a Spotters cap each went to Suzie for noticing the patch on Sharky’s jeans – clearly an avid watcher of our videos to have noticed that. And to Julian Tomlinson for spinning us up a cracking good yarn.

Congratulation to the winners, thank you to everyone who watched and entered the comp and thankyou to Spotters for such great prizes for us to give away.

If you haven’t yet made the move to Spotters I can highly recommend them and wouldn’t be without them for fishing – especially bait collecting.

I have used the “Penetrator” lenses for years and did not think sunnies could get any better.

That is until I  trialed the new Halide lenses which even top the Penetrators in my view – but of course horses for courses.

You can’t go wrong with either.

    Fish has another small run, enough to ensure its out of site again. At that point, it shakes its head and the hook comes out. Bitter dissapointment again.
