Anglers around Southern Africa
The newest kayak manufactured in the Hunter Ski factory.
Ponat Malongane in Southern Mozambique was host to the annual STRAB festival, which is a display of 30 of southern africa's best and up and coming bands. But for us it was much more about the fishing, especially for me, my fist sail fish from a kayak.
Past Vilonkulos, a piece of paradise!
The fresh water kayak fishing explosion continues!

2nd ever fresh water kayak fishing competition
Oh what fun we have when the barbel are spawning!!!
Another successful competion, and things are hotting up to see who takes the series at the end of the season. Before I put down the results, we should set a date for the 3rd competition. Sat and Sun 13, 14th DEC, any other ideas?
The placings for Roodeplaat 2nd freshwater kayak fishing competition were as follows:
1st. Rick Flare - 5 barbel, 2 canary kurper - 33 points
2nd. Dave Mollatt - 4 barbel, 1 canary kurper - 30 points
3rd. Chris Lelo - 3 barbel, 2 bass - 29 points
4th. Brian Jacob - 5 barbel - 28 points

The species multiplier played a big role and it looks like that is the way to win these comp. We are yet for somebody to catch 3 species in one comp!
Bass Lake is a crystal clear water quarry with some record size Bass. A record of 7kgs. R100 to bass fish there, but worth the money.
