    When are you collecting your rod?

    It is in desperate need of a good and busy fishing home. May need to put it up for adoption again?

    Ooohh yes!! cant wait!! Hopefully I can give it a bend even before then when the wind dies down a bit here. August you bugger!!!

    @Adrian I got your mails and tried to reply, but my mail settings on my phone seem buggered so not sure if you got it. Will give you guys a shout when I get home.

    @Ryan, didn't you guys also get stuck with the back log traffic while the N3 was closed? 8-10hours seem a tad long, did you guys take short cut via Jozini or all the way to Hluhluwe and back up to Kosi?

    At one tim there was a stretch between Jozini and Kangwanase that had zero tar for about 5kms, incidentally your average speed on this section would be significantly faster than on the bits that still had tar but were lined with holes big enough to swallow City Golfs.

    Kosi is a very special place to fish and Paul did spend plenty time slogging away in the suds there. We did a trip there late in May (Derrick incl) to remember Paul and had plenty of special moments and laughs. Ask Derrick again when you see him about his nighttime reef to beach crossing on a submerged kayak with Barry?
    Howzit Arno.. Please see your PM sent.

    Cheers,
