HOOKED celebrated its first-year anniversary in Indochine’s Bianca Supper.Club at Clarke Quay on 13 September. Despite the slight drizzle at the start of the event, this did not dampen the spirits of the team; nor, as it would appear from the turnout, those of the magazine’s invited guests. Consisting of people from all walks of life – from amateur and professional anglers to complete newbies – the guests were kept entertained with a “What’s That Fish” competition, lucky draws and booths from the event’s sponsors: Reactor, SureCatch and Ruggear.
The end of the night saw a few lucky participants go home with over $3,400 worth of prizes including a Base Camp Duffel Bag from the North Face, a Reactor Graviton 2 Watch, and a RugGear Swift II-RG210 (with Powerbank) worth $788. However, those that did not win anything still did not go home empty-handed: everyone received a goodie bag just for sharing our joy, and through the whole night, Indochine was kind enough to keep everyone filled to the brim with scrumptious finger foods.
