At the end of the day these guys be it Hennie, Spyker, Rapson,ESA, etc have the B%^LS to put what they love on a DVD. Then the best we can do is scrutenize and critisize these guys. I am very sure that when we look past the mistakes they make they make we actually learn a lot-My 2 bob.

Um potato bass isnt a protected species at bassas da india? Lol actually i dunno?? Is it part of Madagascar or Moz? Anyway i dont think that gaffing it in the jaw, if done properly, will do the fish too much damage. Hell, brindle bass chow stingrays! Didnt anyone notice that their 'oceanic white tip' was just a silver tip reef shark? I generally enjoy bfs though. Hennie is a good presenter who makes a good effort. His species identification isnt always spot on, nor is his english, but he does try damn hard! No locally made fishing dvds can touch Angling With Blackfin though. For quality and content! Those guys dont skimp on content or sharing knowledge.

I don't want to go into nailing this "pro" or that "pro", but a certain one makes us look like real horses bums

especially when they keep a shark so long out the water THAT IT STARTS GOING PINK and then proceed to RELEASE IT AGAIN ...

And when they get flatfish with those LOVELY HOLES to stick your fingers into and then proceed to pull the fish out of the water that way ... ai tog.

Big Trees tend to get alot of wind

The "celebrity" angler I have the most respect for and would love to meet would most definately be Wesley.

Oh and I forgot to mention, Wesley is actually 4th on my list, sorry make that 5h, cause the 4 top spots belong to (in no specific order) Nepps, HT, Miles and Reefman

The biggest problem with the SA Shows and DVD's, STOP TELLING EVERYONE THAT YOU ARE THE PRO'S - cause you not, just be normal anglers that make good quality DVD's and shows. It creates LESS expectations and people can relate to fellow NORMAL ANGLERS.

When you the pro, everybody will watch and wait for you to make a mistake and then BAM, they will nail you for it.

Especially if you from Kempton ... (those holes for your fingers again come to mind) ...

BTW, I've never seen the Spyker DVD's

I do have a few Big Fish DVD's that I bought a long time ago and a few Berkley ones, that I quite enjoy and then ofcourse the best ones will always be the Blackfin ones.

Hi Thinus

:welcomesea: to Sealine & enjoy your stay!

Beginning of the year I started of with more or less the same question as you.  Here is a lot of info on this site about Henties, try using the search function and enter Henties/Hentiesbay/Hentiesbaai.

If you still not happy the guys wont mind if you PM them with a question:

Simon

Spyker Kruger

Also start a dedicated thread if you still not getting all your answers


Myself will be in Henties sometime between the 23 September & 2nd October, going on a mini tour, but plan to spent a couple of days fishing.  I can help you with some coordinates.

Hope this helps.

Stywe Lyne!!!

Going to Henties in December and therefore watched the DVD over the week end. If you've been in Henties before you'll know that very few if any other SA fishing spots has the same "vibe","character", "atmosphere", "air" as this combination of desert and ocean. SA anglers have been going back there year after year to build on their fond memories. SPYKER is a "Henties"  legend that "lives his passion" and I don't care about any of the mistakes or shortfalls in the DVD. I took everything I could learn from this and truly believe that it will help me when targeting Bronzies and other sharks in Henties. The bait presentations were very interesting as I need to evolve a bit more from sliding to casting baits-that part was great.

If you want fancy camera work and good English language...watch ESA

If you want to see a legend in action..."screeming reels in Henties Bay"

If you are worried about the gaffs on the sharks (which I was when I watched it the first time) go look again. The gaffs were placed and used efficiently but carefully with limited damage done.

If you know everything about fishing...go fish and stop buying DVD's and show us your tips and fishies:wfish

Hello Admin,

Because I chose to comment about Enroc's statement, doesn't mean I've haven't been following the thread, just didn't take kindly to him addressing fellow sealiners as "twats and dvd's been shoved", BTW I sleep at nite.........

If there are any sponsors available or even some freelance camera men prepared to do pro-bono work, there will be some 30 Sealiners in Henties in December.

Spyker and Simen can head up the re-make of the DVD and the GP team can fill in the gaps with some good fish, a couple of red cans and a Sealine kuier of note..

He he he - " Screaming Sealiners in Henties "

(Edit = spelling error)
(Edit 2 = GP rules)

The Fish Africa with the Alcock Brothers DVD's in my personal opinion are the best produced salt water fishing DVD's in South Africa, nothing comes even close!!
Each one has 2 full hour long episodes that are crammed with tonnes of professional advice on lure fishing techniques.
The twin brothers, Chad and Lando Alcock, are the presenters and they give a wealth of knowledge and info that has improved my fishing incredibly.
The footage is really well filmed and edited, with a great sound track and voice over.
If you are into lure fishing like drop shot, lead head, swimming lures, spoons, surface lures, etc then you will learn a lot from these DVD's.
There are 3 DVD's so far.
