I have had a passion for all aspects of angling since as long as I can remember. Everytime I see water I cant help but imagine what fish are lurking beneath the surface and how I would go about catching them with a rod and reel.

It all started with my dad taking my brothers and myself to a still water just outside of Ceres to catch trout on spinners. From there I got into flyfishing for trout and later bass. Once the bass bug bit me I couldnt get enough and started to target them in farm dams on bass tackle. As the years passed my passion for fishing grew stronger and I tried my hand at salt water fishing which included targeting edible and non - edible fish from the shore. I was then invited out on a boat to target Yellowtail with spinning gear. Yellowtail fishing with a 9 foot rod and 30lb braid and spinners still has to be one of the most exciting aspects of  fishing in my opinion. 

Yellowfin Tuna was next on the list and I was rewarded with many good fish on a few seperate occassions.

As an avid angler I still experience a thrill when setting the hook on any species of fish but my heart lies with the feisty bass! Smallmouth being my favourite quarry.

I look forward to competing with South Africas best in the world of bass fishing and I hope to learn a lot from the guys that have the same passion as me because everyone has their own unique styles which they have mastered over the years.
