Hi there all.
Plz check out http://www.paindane.com
excellent competition for all kayak anglers.
It would be great fun to hav a few international anglers joining us in 2007.
With the Rand/Dollar exchange rate R 7.20 to the US Dollar it would be your cheapest and best holiday you have ever dreamed of.
This year plenty of King Mackeral, Giant Trevally, Prodical Son, and other species including a Sailfish were caught.
If you have any other queries drop me a mail at mailto:[email protected]
Also check out the website of Paindane and see what paradise is all about.

Common guys lets see if you can fish like you play rugby.....not a word we really use in public these days

Hahahahah, go the springboks!

Wow, sounds like fun...i can fish pretty well but have yet to catch one in my yak ( had 5 hrs over 2 weekends water time, virgin! ) but i couldnt think of a better holiday for the serious yakkers, dunno if there partners would agree... you talking strictly saltwater?

Got some full on sharks and the like that way!

Take care.

I work that out at under $1,000 AUD for accomodation, food, fishing comp entry etc etc. Thats very enticing!!!. South Africa is heaps of fun, beer is good, locals friendly and once you get there everything is very cheap thanks to the exchange rate. Airfares would be the worst part at around $2,000.

I'm very interested. I'm sure we can get yaks there or possibly charter them. Is anyone else possibly up for it?

Cheers

Scott

I suspect that this is a plot to sell yaks. Something like:

* What a great idea
* I'll borrow a yak while I'm over there
* Damn they're cheap, I'll buy one while I'm here
* Ooohh, its so nice, I can't leave it behind
* Its OK dear it was really cheap and the excess baggage wasn't as bad as I thought

Let me just ask the wife if its OK for me to go fishing in South Africa while she does as she pleases. What? You don't think I have the courage! You're right

R100 a night.......that's so cheap it is ridiculous. Peri peri prawns, cashew nuts and Cuca beer - I am tempted. And then there is the fishing to consider. Looks amazing.

Hi GB1, ja, nee....that's where I grew up - in Elgin - apple district outside Cape Town. Boarding school in Cape Town, then to the army for a year (anti aircraft). Then at Stellenbosch Uni. Worked in Jo'burg for 10 or more years, as one does. Worked for Sasol Polymers (as it is known as now). Moved to Melbourne in '97 - and then to Brisbane for 5 years - and now to France. There you have it...my life in 5 lines (all 50 years of it!)! I used to miss Redro fishpaste - but now I miss Vegemite more - and no longer support the Springbokke, I am sorry to say. Don't know if I will ever embrace the French rugby side though.......but we will see, with the RWC coming up next year. Kayak fishing here is a bit tricky - in the Med, you can't go more than 400 m off shore in a kayak under 4 m. And then you are not allowed to fish closer than 300 m to the shore. So, I guess I have a band of about 100 m to fish in!! I am about 3 + hours from Marseilles. That Mocambique trip sounds a blast.

Scott - yeah, I reckon I am for sure. I started reading and thought this looks really sweet, wow would be amazing if I could go. Then I thought why the hell couldn't I go? Have a trip planned for Whistler in July and am now seriously considering doing this one as well - I love travelling.

So yeah - its definitely on my look into seriously list.

I'm still chewing it over Scotty B. The best times of my life have been trips like this. You only live once.......and die painfully.

It would be fantastic if you guys could make it over for that comp, a real credit to you both and this forum. After talking with Fishmatics, Couta and Duran, you will have an absolute blast.

Im very keen to look at the 2007 comp, Mr. Angazi. We'll be due for a family trip about then. Im saving for it now :wink: .

Scott and Shoey - would be awesome if we could have an aussie contingent together and put in a good show. Looks like a great spot with some awesome fishing - if you have a look at the site it looks like there's plenty to do for the rest of the family as well Shoey.

He's a couple more points to add to the positive side of the ledger. Rhyno organised for some photos from this years comp to be emailed to me - hope he doesn't mind me popping them up on here. All photos property of Keith Hockley.
