Then after a few kurpers, something seemed to chased them off.

This was one of the best fights i have ever had prior to this trip, this is still a baby But it fights like a heavyweight.

Hi W.

In vars water by ons is daar nie n enkele plek wat ek glo met die kan kompiteer nie, ek doen gereeld oranje rivier en nie eers dit kom by die uit nie.

See is seker n ander storie, maar ek bly in gauteng en het nog nooit kans gekry om self te probeer nie.

Hiers nog n paar fotos

58min later with sore arms,back and where the rod was stuck in my crotch.

I managed to land this beauty ...
