Thanks for the welcome. IM retired in Pearly Beach and enjoy my fishing, mainly rock and surf. I also go out with my rubberduck on occasions. Hope to meet some interesting angling buddies on this sight

HI guys and thanks for the warm welcome. I learnt my salt water fishing in Walvis Bay. Traveled to paaltjies by bicycle , and used an army kit bag to convey my catch by balancing it between my arms on the center frame of the bike. The ever-blowing SOUTH WESTER sure helped to get me home. All of this happened between 1956 and 1961 when I worked for Barclays Bank in Walvis. Good old days to remember when I fetched FRESH pilchards directly off the boats for bait. Where does one get FRESH bait these days? Intention is to be there in Feb 2015. Regards en STYWE LYNE aan julle almal. Swanie

    Disrespect shown to a member of Admin will result in expulsion.

    Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

Dankie vir die vriendelike groete. Ek bly in thabazimbi en tot my spyt is hier nie juis baie visvangplek nie. As jy nie met die plaaslike boere bevriend is nie sal jy bereid moet wees om te ry. Ek is versot verlief op Namibie se Henties baai en probeer om elke jaar daar uit te kom, terwille van liefde en dankbaarheid vir my mooi oulike meisie het ek toegestem om vanjaar Maart saam haar familie Kaap toe te gaan.


Try sending Ryan (Moderator of the Artlure Forum) a message. His profile says that he resides in Thabazimbi and is a legend on the forum. Perhaps he can assist you with some venues to fish in.

Thanks will do so. I have neglected my fishing on artlures, currently falling under the old papgooier status.  New year is time for change.
