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

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

The eagle has landed

A couple of years ago ESA had some sort of presenter search or something. The west coast leg of this thing was held at Die Lapa Dwarskersbos, and I decided that I should go and throw myself into the mix as well, you never know what can happen. When I arrived the morning there was … Continue reading The eagle has landed

Melkbos Ballerina

The last time I was in Melkbos I was on a date with a ballerina. She was blond and tight and super lekker and I almost spend half my salary to convince her that I was her soulmate. As it turned out I was her sole mate, because she walked right over me. Being a … Continue reading Melkbos Ballerina

Per Abuis Muis

Met arme Margaret van Wyk se koek op almal se lippe (excuse the pun) het ek gedink ek wil darem ook my sê hê. Ja, die land gons oor haar dons (of, "lack of"). Eks nie verbaas dat die per abuis muis so opslag gemaak het nie. Jannie Kotze het altyd gesê net voor hy … Continue reading Per Abuis Muis

Spotted Steamer

We were talking nonsense while sipping a lemonade or two and munching some very nice Springbok droëwors. Amongst the regular banter was how nice it was that we can at least blank on a new beach. We decided a while ago to fish other spots than the usual places we always go to. And since we have … Continue reading Spotted Steamer

a Bettys sunrise

When was the last time you experienced a sunrise?   It's not something you just see, its an encounter and each one a privilege. Let me tell you a secret, there is no better place to see the day break than on a Bettys bay beach. It is absolutely magnificent and no words can really give … Continue reading a Bettys sunrise

Theewaterskloof dam duikers

Een aand ry ons deur Theewaterskloof dam toe om te gaan visvang. Dit was weer een van daai aande wat rustig begin het en toe raak ons aan die visvang praat. Voor ons ons kon kry was die stokke gepak en was ons by die BP besig om "cheese grillers" te koop vir padkos. Dis sommer vinnig … Continue reading Theewaterskloof dam duikers

Good fishing and Great company

You know you have trouble when you get home after a long day of fishing (or should I say trying to fish), and your three year old greets you with: "Het pappa alweer niks gevang nie... (Did you catch nothing again )!" I had the worst blanking streak in a very long time, eight straight … Continue reading Good fishing and Great company

a bro code to fish by

What is ethics? The short Wiki answer is "moral principles that govern a person's behavior". Fishing ethics is basically a standard set of rules or do's and dont's that most of us already live by. We all benefit from the privilege of being able to fish and we should't take it for granted. It basically boils … Continue reading a bro code to fish by
