Excellent post Reefs!!
 
This is something that should be put into a "new to shore angling" section or something. Anyone new to R&S fishing must read this post.

Hi Reefz,


Firstly  a huge compliment to you for the artical  :+ cred: to you.
Can't wait see part 2.


My question is are you also going to be covering the western cape as our winds are different to those of KZN?


Cheers,

Moolies... most of the basic principles discussed will cover our whole coastline - the KZN examples are just used to illustrate the point. I haven't fished the Cape waters much, so I cannot speak about the prevailing conditions there with any authority at all...  sry

Its a pity a lot of the experience Cape town fisherman hardly past their knowledge other than the likes of Oom Daisy for Langebaan.
( I might be speaking under correction i apologize before hand if i have offended any one CPT on the Forum)



I would really like to meet some of the guys if any on :ult:    and show me the ropes of Capetown.

Many of the competitive guys are very tight lipped about their secrets but we are fortunate here to have some guys who are willing to share. Sylvester, Angler1, Lenny and Ray Hall all contribute and I'm sure they will help you out (apologies if I forgot any other CPT anglers!)

What everybody said!

Sometimes most of all this stuff is somehow in the back of our heads... collating all the info and put it together in order to make sense... that takes a lot of work and insight!

Well done Reefz and thanks! :+ cred:
