On Saturday I was fishing my local spot. You know, minding my own business whilst sucking in some salty fresh and breathing out the stresses of 2020. It was a absolute stunning morning. About sixty meters in front of me was a working bank causing the clean water to foam up every now and again. … Continue reading Put it back!
I try and fish at least once a week. It's not always possible though and with family and social commitments taking up most of my free time, fishing sometimes takes a back seat. Everyone knows the one with the diamond ring always has shotgun. But when the wife said she wanted to go to the … Continue reading EPIC!
"Wa wag... Hier's 'n ding wat wil sak" my dad excitedly stated! He was quite bleak by this time because I had landed two beautiful Galjoen and he had only managed a Spotty and a juvenile Gallie.

In April me and an old friend, Quintin decided to go down to Brandfontein and see if we can get a Steenbras. The weather was monitored from the Monday and the closer it got to the weekend the better the conditions seem to get for that Sunday. On the Saturday I had a braai with … Continue reading De Mond – That’s why!
