    Default Someone is talking K@K

    Have a look at the new "Stywe Lyne" Mag. I think it is page 46 or 56. Its a small article on a massive man eating barbel that was the cause of people go missing in a river. Apparently the mouth is a meter wide and body parts were found in the stomach.

    Have look because I believe somebody is talking K@K. I am 99% sure it is a whaleshark. Its got the white spots and the bone structure to confirm my believe.
    1) Whaleshark does not eat any meat
    2) It swims around in the oceans and definately not in freshwater
    3) I can not believe Stywe Lyne fall for such Sh!t

    I did deliveries yesterday and had to wait for management to check the stock. I then got hold of the Stywe Lyne and wizz through it.....very quickly and notice this Fake man-eating barble which is a whale shark look alike.

    I can not remember when last I bought it. My mom thought she did me huge favour and put one in my birthday box earlier this year.

    I must agree, terible mag if you not a bait caster

    The only part of the mag I find interresting is towards the back where they show photos of the guys catches,on what,time,weather and if it was released.I have seen some nice largies there.

    I think you guys are being VERY unfair about this !

    Stywe Lyne is a wonderful asset with many uses to both the baitie, fly fisher and joe public alike. For instance ... imagine being on a hike in the bush and the ring sting curry you had last night is really coming back to bite you in the butt ... and you have no TP.

    Yeah, if you like reading :

    Was fish released/Is vis losgelaat : No/Nee

    I really like the pictures showing fish being held by the gills, especially those pesky large Kob that are a dime a dosen these days.

    A string of gutted coalacanths tastefully arrayed around a brace of shotgunned whale shark on the beach would look pretty cool!

    More especially if the pic was taken with the setting sun behind you and 'Ms. Stywe Lyne 1962' posing in an undersized one-piece bri-nylon polka-dot transparent-with-age swimming cozzie in the foreground. With a Lucky Strike in one hand, and an umbrella'd coconut shell half-filled with sweet white wine/Tab in the other, she'd do us all proud!
