Hi Guys,

managed to have a short sojurn over to the family hunting farm in South Africa for a few weeks. Stopped in Singapore on the way to check out the fishing shops and to also have a go for some of the Peacock bass and other species in the reservoirs.

The stay in South Africa was great. A little fishing for Sharptoothed catfish (mangur), blue tilapia and carp was had but most of the time was spent on the farm. If the fishing urge was strong usually the only cure was to catch 3 inch tilapia from the drinking troughs!!

It was a good time to be in the bush. The hunting season was coming to a close and the first rains announced spring was arriving so there was plenty going on in the bush.

More photos on my blog at hope you enjoy

All the best, Scott

Sharp toothed catfish caught on a piece of dove. I had to go swimming for this one and extract it from a snag before following down river to more open water.

blue Tilapia. good sized ones too that ended up on the fire.

Sunset at the local lake. large shallow weedy areas provide good stalking for carp and catfish. everywhere the angler can see tails protruding from the water;those are the cats. the slurping noises give the carp away. a careful cast with a bunch of freelined worms does the trick.

Aaaaye!! :)

And yes it gets eaten far more quicker if you have some bier alongside :)

We do get biltong and dry wor here in UAE from SA but no compare to the original stuff from SA.

Hi Scott, good report, exellent pics,

How big do the sembaru get ? they look quite sporty. always makes the fishing more interesting when you are on the "guest list " I find, oh and did you have the sharp toothed catfish on a dove with wings or one with bubbles?

Keep on posting,


Rich
