A Cracking Thought (ACT)

Featured

In an interview with Herchelle Gibbs after he scored that unbelievable 175 from 111 in the 438 game he said he knew he was going to score a hundred that day. He even said he got the same feeling before he scored that hundred in die 99 semi final (lets not go there). I suppose … Continue reading A Cracking Thought (ACT)

Brandfonfokkentein

Featured

A couple of years ago myself and mates, J&D, decided to go visit Brandfontein to target some Galjoen and Steenbras. I kept on confusing the name with Brandvlei, the small little Karoo town where kids learn to swim on a face cloth... Water is scarce in the big Karoo! So it was suggested that I … Continue reading Brandfonfokkentein

I don't often catch a Galjoen worth mentioning, so if I do, I show and tell! (Nie dat dit veel vat van my om uit te haal en te wys nie... Vra maar vir vinnige Anna. Ek wys graag!) The wife woke me up at 3:30 on Saturday morning with: "I might have killed the … Continue reading Last cast 49er

a perfect day

Featured

My dad, my uncle and a friend were off at 4:30 towards Struisbaai! The excitement was immense. A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get stuck into a proper Steamtrain and since my companions wanted one as well I was selected as the designated guide for the day. On our way we … Continue reading a perfect day

On any given Sunday

Die oumense het mos geglo visvang op 'n Sondag is sonde en dat jy niks anders mag doen as kerk toe gaan, eet en slaap op die Sabbat nie. Toe sê my pa mos een keer hy gaan darem bitter teleurgesteld wees wanneer hy eendag in die Hemel kom en uitvind dat vis vang op … Continue reading On any given Sunday

What's that? Ja sorry, I haven't posted for a while, I know. But the truth is there hasn't been anything to post about.  I've been struggling to catch anything decent and its not because of a lack of trying, it just seems that I'm on a bit of a dry spell. In September we started … Continue reading Diamonds and laughs

Misverstand op Misverstand

Ons het besluit ons moet 'n slag gaan kyk wat swem in Misverstand dam. Na 'n bietjie navorsing en rondvrae het ons twee regte pap swaai visse in gedagte gehad. Karp en Baber sou daar gevang word. Al was dit middel Augustus en nog vrek koud in die aande het ons besluit om te kamp. … Continue reading Misverstand op Misverstand

Releasing the dream

Next to us surfaced the biggest Kob both of us had ever seen. Of course in magazines and on social media we have seen bigger, but never before have we had one on a rod and reel this close to us (the one I lost last year was bigger but he never came this close). … Continue reading Releasing the dream

A day to remember

Featured

Well I haven’t been to The Sands in months and my whole body is aching with withdrawal symptoms! Work, wife and other commitments are seriously messing with my love for the Breede… Anyhow, I was scrolling through some old photos and came across a couple that I haven’t shared with you guys, yet! It was a … Continue reading A day to remember
