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…

Two Bits – Julius just got predictable, therefore boring

Julius Malema and the EFF are finally running the risk of becoming predictable and boring. Imagine them sitting in some smoke-filled shebeen, planning their strategy for Zuma’s 2017 State of the Nation address. “Hey guys, what we did in 2015 and 2016 worked so well. I’ve got a brilliant idea – let’s do it again!”…

Angling Report – 10 February 2017

There was some really hot and humid weather last week, making for very uncomfortable conditions. North easterlies were the main culprit but even when the winds blew from the south, humidity levels remained high. For much of the week anglers had to put up with a big, strong surf that was pounding on the sandbanks,…

Two Bits – Am I a prude by today’s TV standards?

Channel surfing the other night, I clicked on the show Vikings and was confronted by a full-screen image of a warrior fellow loudly and lustily banging his wife/girlfriend/slave with all the sound effects, visuals and whatever else thrown in. How far have we come since the days that Hollywood could only film couples in bed…

Angling Report – 03 February 2017

A south westerly wind moved up the coast on Wednesday but for much of the week the winds were from the north east bringing hot and humid weather. The barometer was down on Saturday morning and the southerly winds were back for the weekend and began blowing before 7am on Saturday morning. I visited some…

Angling Report – 27 January 2017

The winds blowing from the north east one day, south west the next made fishing difficult last week. Fortunately, the conditions were good on Saturday morning and the weekend offshore anglers managed some prime sea time. During the week anglers targeting game fish had to be on the water early to do some fishing, before…

Two Bits – Plato said it all

Having a contrary nature, I am rather enjoying the wholesale scrap over America’s new president, Donald Trump. I can’t speak for the American people – well of course, the majority have spoken by choosing him, haven’t they! – but the media is generally portraying Trump as Darth Vader who is single-handedly going to destroy Western…
