Good Morning Everyone, read through the thread and there are some excellent suggestions. A lot of time and effort has been put into this site from a lot of people and i think its only fair that nothing gets deleted besides the old stickies.
Great to see Doc HH still in the mix! Can i call you ballie now? haha
Couple of us that started on here are still in contact and it would be great to get things revived.
The reality is, as mentioned that social media took over however there is no ways that social media and all its pages put together has the wealth of info that this site has.
I can suggest a few "updated" posts to be added and marketed through various channels to increase traffic on the site again as there are considerably more anglers now than a few years ago and many at that that are mis informed or simply lack some guidance to have a successful trip or to target a specific specie and actually tick it off the bucket list.
Im committed to help so let me know where i can add or contribute.
Ahh, nice having a old scalp back!!!!
you should actually introduce yourself!!!
the basics of fishing has stayed the same.
some tweaks here and there on your style of fishing could assist you in getting positive results.
drone fishing has expanded in leaps and bounds, the technology involved there is another aspect for discussion.
the equipment we are using has also improved a lot.
i do tend to fish with equipment that is still working "why do i need to change a reel or rod if it is still delivering?"
the cost of fishing equipment has risen and fishing competitively is not cheap.
so back in the days, a R 2000 budget would get you far.
now, it might not even get you started!!!
so, where will a newbie need to start?
what will his budget be?
so, what did the dog bring into the room?
My name is Volcom and im a fishing addict
As with most newbies, the question almost always starts with what tackle should i buy. This at large always comes down to someone responding by what they use and why that tackle is preferred. However while no harm is intended, there is alot more to answering a question like that.
The example above is what i will create on a separate post and topic. Please feel free to add.
Post will follow soon.
Oh and what brought me back? All the good memories
