I left the office at 16:00 on Friday 14 December and rushed home to Meyerton where Vian and his Mom had the clothes, bedding, sunscreen, mosquito repellent and food and snacks ready for this Father and Son trip. The rest was done the previous night and I basically hooked the trailer and off we went. My brother left for Koppies earlier that day to go and reserve a spot for us. On route I give him a call but am disappointed to hear that it is pouring with rain and that the lightning has prevented my “boet”  to even come close to his rods...Vian changed the CD in the car to a fishing compilation and we sing along the tunes of Sarah De Jagher, Se my toe,toe and also my old time favourite...”Vissermansvriend se Pa” which 9 out of 10 times let a tear roll down my cheek... must be my drive to also one day leave behind a legacy in my Son’s life. Our beautiful sport is the TOOL that can allow you to do TAKE YOUR KIDS TO THE WATER AND GO CHASE THOSE MEMORIES- they last forever. Ok, back to business now...The traffic was an absolute nightmare on this Long Weekend with all the holiday makers on route...
