Hi Guys

is this weird sardines netted in durban this part of the year?

It was a reasonable one. Better than the last 3 years.  Sards netted up and down the coast... http://www.ultimateangling.co.za/index.php?topic=22296.0

Shoo.........the world wide web brought me back to my very first major writing effort. Memories, memories......have to say, I think it has aged fairly well for such an old article, but it certainly could do with an update.....

Heading down to Transkei for 2 weeks on 04 May. Hopefully will see some signs of the sards, but it might be a bit early. If we miss them, will be back in June for a week, and we normally get to see them at that time of the year......
Unfortunately i have never been around where they have beached, but have seen some of the shoals very close in when they were driven in by the dolphins and the game fish. One day............

Hi Reefs, please fwd me details re your e-mail so I can forward the update, I haven't illustrated it with appropriate pics of fish etc, as I do not want to navigate copyright issues, but it is ready to be forwarded for you to proof read and post.
