Angling Report

Every day last week I monitored the sea and it was only towards the weekend that the swell and surf moderated enough to allow anglers some fishing time. At the beginning of the week the sea and surf conditions were excellent with hot and humid days. Anglers fishing the deep water spots caught a few…

Two Bits – Which is better – some jobs or none at all?

It is nearly 40 years since I was one of a huge crowd at the funeral of Steve Biko in King William’s Town in September 1977. Not a year later I was at the graveside of yet another towering black political figure, Robert Sobukwe, on March 11, 1978, in the dusty Karoo town of Graaff-Reinet….

Angling Report

There was some wind and a bit of a swell at the beginning of last week but the sea and weather conditions for much of the week were ideal for angling. Most of the action took place offshore where some nice fish were caught both by anglers and the spear fishermen. There was a low…

Two Bits – Declaration of Independence

This week we are hard at work finishing off two bumper supplements, one for The Courier and the other for our Get It magazine, for the new Ballito Junction regional shopping mall. They are both going to be well worth waiting for! Like everybody else in town, we are looking forward to the opening next…

Angling Report

The weather and sea conditions of last week were favorable for angling, especially during the second half of the week. It was very hot and humid all week but a south westerly wind that began pushing around lunchtime on Sunday helped to cool the air down. Although it is hot and humid during the day,…

Angling Report – 03 March 2017

Three days and three nights of almost continuous rain – which was heavy at times – created flooded rivers and lots of dirty water plus plenty of weeds and rubbish flowing into the sea. When the rain finally stopped I had a look at the sea and the water was dirty as far as the…

Two Bits – Make your first impression really count

Here we are in March already, and only three weeks to go to the opening of the new Junction regional shopping centre – 80 000 sq metres, 220 or so shops, movies, hairdressers, supermarkets, and more retaurants than you can shake a stick at. With nearly 20 new restaurants and fast food outlets, that will…

Angling Report – 24 February 2017

Everyone was watching the progress of tropical storm Dineo for much of last week that was upgraded to cyclone status just before making landfall. Many people do not remember the carnage when cyclone Demoina moved down the coast in the 1980’s but those that do, have not forgotten. Ten meter swells were recorded in the…

Two Bits – A remarkable story, well told

There are two kinds of memoirs that I start reading cautiously and find an excuse to put down at the slightest provocation: those by politicians and those by journalists. Politicians usually have an over-inflated sense of their own importance while in reality their role in their country’s or world affairs will, most likely, be relegated…

Angling Report – 17 February 2017

There was some wind and a bit of a swell at the beginning of last week but the sea and weather conditions were ideal for much of the week. Most of the action took place offshore where some nice fish were caught, both by anglers and spear fishermen. There was a low swell and small…
