Many contestants wished “Good Luck” to each other and cast their fishing lines

A fishing contest was held on the second day of Fatih Municipality Fish Festival, which is traditionally organized in Fatih every year. Fishers who took part in the contest came early in the morning, wished good luck to fellow fishers and cast their lines in the cool waters of Golden Horn.

The fishing contest was held on Galata Bridge on the 2nd day of Fatih Municipality Fish Festival, organized for the 15th time this year with the collaboration of Fatih Municipality and KUMDER (Kumkapı Touristic Restaurants and Shopkeepers Solidarity Association) to make fishing and fish consumption more popular as the fishing season began. Many contestants came early in the morning and cast their lines in the cool waters of Golden Horn. Contestants delivered a tough competition and filled their buckets with fish. While some lost their catch as they reeled in, some others caught three or four fishes at once.

And the Winner is... Muhammed Korkmaz

As the contest drew to an end, the catch was counted. Muhammed Korkmaz won the fishing contest with 3 kilos and 390 grams of fish he caught. The 2nd winner was Osman Uslu with 3 kilos and 150 grams and the 3rd winner was Mustafa Altun with 2 kilos and 740 grams. Fatih Municipality Deputy Mayor Necati Selvi and President of KUMDER Kemal Duranoğlu presented the cups and various presents to the winners.

Following the announcement of the contest results, fish sandwiches were offered on Galata Bridge. Mackerel for 2,000 persons was grilled for the citizens. Standing by the grills, Fatih Municipality Deputy Mayor Necati Selvi and President of KUMDER Kemal Duranoğlu offered fish sandwiches to the citizens.
