Thread: Fun In The Surf (Photo Heavy)

    Default Fun In The Surf (Photo Heavy)

    I found a new favourite venue close to my office. It's perfect for a pre or post work fish in summer. Here are a couple of photos...

    Hopefully its not too churned up by Irina. Give a yell if you're in the area and looking for a fishing partner or two.

    hey Waz

    are you using an intermediate line or a sinking line there?

    i love that little section of beach...used to snorkel along there back in the day. used to have lots of white sand mussels the size of my hand a few metres in.

    I'm using an intermediate in these photos Gary. That said my mate's fished it with a fast sinking line and had similar success.

    Well fished Warren, not too many guys can claim to have caught Permit locally on fly, better yet in Durban!

    Err Ja well, can get confusing- Permit are Pompano and Pompano can be called Permit....

    The Southern Pompano (Trachinotus Africanus) is a close relative of the Western Atlantic Permit and Indo-Pacific Pompano.

    That's more along the lines of what I thought. Thanks for the explanation.
