Rock and surf fishing- Not for PETA members
Posted 13 July 2012 - 06:08
I do a lot of angling in summer time, targeting mostly sharks(all tag and release)
So far i am standing on close to 200 tags for the last 2 years.
Here's some great memories of fish lost and special days next to the water, not the biggest but special in some or other way

I flyfish, fresh and salt. I prefer Yellowfish but wit barbless flies. I practice only catch and release. I also do dropshot with light tackle.
I have amazing memories of fishing in Angola in the Namibe region of the westcoast.
BTW, is it the work of the taxman on that hook??

Must admit - have been fortunate enough to do a couple of deep sea fishing trips and managed to land myself a record Queen off St Lucia a while back. The fishing thing can bite hard to!

That is without a doubt the best spot in SA...sighting fishing to yellows, doesn't get much better than that. Do the vaal in the warmer months(chuck nymphing) and do a anual trip with the manne to the eastern cape or dullstroom rivers for some wild troot. Lots of single malt, meat and good times yea. Tying is another great aspect of fly fishing I really enjoy, but that is a topic on its own.

Guilty,,,,not even a little i shot my first kudu when i was 8 and still do hunting and fishing as much as i can
And by the way i grew up in Etosha game reserve, 1992 we moved to SA and my parents started working in Kruger, where they still are
I spend alot of my time in the bush and i think i know enough not to get in a stupid argument with a guy like you that probably only knows what he knows because of TV..
Please stay off this good fishing thread and go play somewhere else
