I have been fishing since the age of 4. I am part of one of the most successful fishing families in South Africa with my dad (Jan) my brother (Quinton) and myself all representing South Africa on the world stage numerous times, we have also all won individual South African Titles on numerous occasions as well as winning medals on the world stage. Through the years of my angling career in all the different facets I have achieved top results. I have a vast set of skills ranging from very fine light float fishing to long distance fishing; we in South Africa do bank fishing which is similar to feeder fishing with a difference. We fish at distances between 30m to 200m depending on the venue. Match fishing in SA is all based on fips rules match or feeder.
Achievements- 3 individual SA Gold medals, 6 Team Gold Medals, KDM (Kevin Downing Memorial) 3 Gold medals, SA Match league winner 3 times, 3 individual Gold medals at the SAVOF tour, Winner of the first Fish O Mania SA pairs event, top ten individually and team at the World Match championships. 3 section wins at the world championships and Numerous match wins and feeder match wins.
Favourite way of fishing- I really enjoy and type of fishing but the trill and excitement of catching big carp and cat fish on my pole far outweighs anything else. Stretching my elastics great fun.
Why I Go Fish- fishing is the most unpredictable sport in the world and you either get out witted or you out wit the fish and catch a bag full the challenge is amazing.
1. Duro Hollo 12 is amazing soft enough to catch smaller fish without the risk of too many hook pulls and you have the chance of landing that 12- 15 kilo cat fish.
2. PR355 hook nice gauge micro barb strong and light enough for all types of fishing.
