Is there any tips on the Angola DVD or is it simply a fishing adventure again?

there is an old afrikaans saying 'elke brommer op sy drol', these guys might be excellent fisherman but tried to broaden their horizons, some of them have been making DVD's for years and used to good footage, maybe our expectation has outgrown these guys over the last 2 years, since we have been exposed to other people and producers, with guys like ESA and Blackfin these older generation has not kept up with what the public wants. Maybe somebody should take on to themselves and send them an e-mail with constructive criticism. I haven't seen the DVD so it won't be me.

I have seen the Blackfin DVD, actually bought them and have learn some from it, but agree with some threads above, you can learn alot more from a toppie on the beach.

secondly I would like to add. I support local guys trying to make an effort and do what they love most, therefore I don't mind buying the DVD if is crap I will let them know with constructive criticism, if the respond I will buy the next release if they don't I will never support them again. Like I said I will buy the DVD, I will not borrow a DVD and watch it, or get a copied DVD from a buddy. you can call it piracy but I just call it is being not right. sure watch a copy made from one of the big concerns, but these are our local guys trying to make a living.

Unfortunatly I wasted my money on the Angola DVD.  Won't recommend it at all, unless you would like to have a full detailed report of the trip they had to Angola. With the trip I mean the drive there. About half of the DVD is their trip to the place, very little fishing and 1 bait. That is basicly the DVD. Sorry I forgot the Advertisments. They can't say anything without mentioning a sponsor. The Bait demo is an basic fish head bait.

I have bought my last Screaming Reels DVD. I will only support Black fin and BFS.

It's our fault , we complain , but do nothing...do what the rest of of the nation does..

Boycott!!!!! every single piece of crap that is sold and the people who sell sponsered crap to  us poor sods..its there fault, thats why they have buyers...they should

check what they are buying before they sell crap , or at least warn us..and that applies to second rate service , and inflated prices.....

My cents worth

there goes the hot air balooooons again on this site.

guys please ....the thing that makes me laaf about this site is that half the guys(includin myself) are novices yet they are the first to jump and critisise dvds. just remember that before the dvds were around....url had nothing to watch and most of url know wat url know frm watchin the dvds

first url started with esa and now url nailing this 1. i personally have them and think they good. i might never get to fish namib ...so atleast i got to see it on dvd. and stop actin so discusted about gaffin sharks(not that i am for it) but pls stop tryin to be such an enviromentelist were url might do the same in that situation.

so pls stop pumpin urls mouth cos half of u dont knw wat url talkin about....lets support all the s.a dvds wether informative or not

hennie..esa....spyker...blackfin ....all are good and since most of url are novices....watch wat url can and learn and appreciate viewing our coastline cos there will be many places shown on those dvds that url will never see.

say wat url want to me about wat i had to say....i give a sh!t

I will support all fishing DVD's as I'm in love with the sport.  For that reason I get Hennie's, Blackfin's and ESA's DVD's every month, but will not buy another Screaming reels DVD.

 

The main reason for this is because it is no almost fishing, but an advertesment for Western Accessories.  My opinion is that you don't want to pay R99 just to see what new stuff is available at WA.  Ads should be free. 

 

I'm more than willing to pay for any DVD on fishing aslong as it is fishing and fishing tips.

If you pay for something and it does not meet you expectations, then you are entitled to complain. problem is, Sealine is not the place to do it, however posting issues like this on Sealine creates awareness and warns other members.

producers go out an make DVD's without keeping in mind what the public want or expects.

this does not take away the fact that they are excellent fisherman, but like I said in my earlier posting, doesn't mean they can make video's.

I got Screamin reels in hentjies bay ,,disc one was not working properly ,returned and got another one ,the production company seems like the have a low budget which is in total contrast to Big fish safari-these ous are top producers ,,got all the saltwater dvds --learnt a lot from there and its very enjoyable.

blackfin -not so impressive

Nigel -shore angling -very good

"Dont hate the player hate the Game" dont hate the fishermen hate the producers

:raine DON'T WANT TO RAIN ON YOUR PARADE. BUT I WATCHED THE ANGOLA DVD AND THE DVD IS OVER AN HOUR LONG. THE FOOTAGE OF THE TRIP UP TO ANGOLA IS ABOUT 15 MINUTES. VERY INTERESTING FOOTAGE. WAR HAS KLAPPED THAT COUNTRY.

LOVE HOW THEY CAUGHT SHARKS IN THE LAGOON WITHOUT STEEL TRACE.

JA, THEY DO NEED TO ADD MORE BAIT TIPS AND INFO, BUT THE DVD IS VERY ENTERTAINING. WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT.

CHOMP......

why must me support things if they are crap sorry habbib i really disagree with you on that one mate. I own a few hennie BFS dvd's and every one is brilliant, the blackfin dvd on the non return slide is possible the best fishing dvd i have ever seen, but i have the screeming reels in the tkei and i dont find them that great or informative, yest there are a few tips here and there and dome pretty average angeling, i mean you can only watch people catch small hammers for so long hey. I dont see why we must support them just because they are south african, lets rather support the guys who are making goog stuff then hopefully those who are not (screaming reels) will pick up their game and then in the end we will all benfit with a number of top quality publications. Also the price of the the dvd's is very expensive in comparson to the others for what you are getting.

Hi there. The Screamin Reels dvd's were not bad at all. :wfish

I know you like Big Fish Safari, I watched hennie's Volume 27 on Bassas da India. Have you watched Volume 27?? Then tell me what you think.......

Was a very nice destination, would love to fish there, must be very expensive. Until they started gaffing Potato Bass. They were being gaffed under the chin, but still, they are protected. As a pro angler, should he not know better than that???????

I would like to know from the members what they think about Potato Bass being gaffed. I wonder what the top fishermen like Bryan Rapson and Spyker Kruger think on this. My pals and I were totally flabbergasted and our wives were appaulled as they are huge into conservation, you know the whole 'ecofriendly' thing.:fbash

Hi guys
I met Mr Spyker Kruger and part of his team at the pretoria Bundu Show and like to say (apart from the trail discussion)that they are a great bunch of guys, friendly, helpful, and trying,
I have two of thier DVD's and i quite enjoy it, so i belive that they can only get better from whatever they can get from this forum, hay aint that what we all need in life "good advice to get better"?
Any how nice meeting you Guys and like somone else already said thank you for showing us some of the great coastlines that we might not get to see for ourself.

It was great meeting you at the show. I have to admit that it was even better knowing you are from the sealine family, makes talking sense about fishing so much easier.Again thanks for the support , we did the angola 2 awhile ago but was great to launch,

Being part of the sealine family with negative and positive feed back is giving me a better idea what the guys want ,but we have to remember that it is not only fisherman that buy these dvd"s.

trying to give the buyer something worth his money is my mayor CONCERN now.

cheers

Great dvd ,good fish and well presented!!!

I watched the dvd, I like to buy other guys dvds as I still feel it is all in good cause.

They are releasing the fish with care and then comes the GAFFING of one of our most critical species! I dont know about that, it is not my show so I cant say what the reason was. But looking at the reply I got after the gaffing of sharks on Transkei and Henties, I will keep my eyes open for any future reviews that the readers post on this.

I have never ever seen myself as a PRO Angler, and do not try and brand myself as one, But I think when you do that you should know better.......

Hi there. You say Spyker sucks and Hennie rocks. At least Spyker tags and releases his fish in the best way he can. Have you watched any of the latest ones? Guess not.:raine

Hennie on the other hand, will catch 10 Greenspot Kingfish in the surf and then the 11th Greenspot Kingfish, he was confused and was asking around what species it was. LOL. He is supposed to be a 'PRO ANGLER'...... That was his LINENE dvd. (confused as anything).... I don't mean to rag him but he is a pro isn't he???:shark

Then comes BIG FISH SAFARI VOLUME 27, where he is gaffing POTATO BASS. What do you think about that?? You say you are an angler from the Cape and you are not a beginner, so what are your views on this???? Or is the Potato Bass not protected on BASSAS DA INDIA??????????????????

You should watch those Transkei DVD's, maybe you will catch bigger sharks than your 10kg raggie. lol.

Watch Big Fish Safari volume 27, where hennie gaffs Potato Bass with some clients of his.

Nobody has obviously seen this, as they have not responded to my questions. Or is everybody Hennie verskok that they will just brush this to one side???????????

Something that really irritates me is how everyone gets so worked up and then start to have a go at each other. Stop taking things so personal and just make your comments. I received the Transkei dvd as a gift and was extremely dissapointed. Honestly, the sharks were tiny and the dvd was not entertaining. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but it never did. This does not mean that Spyker cant fish or is a bad guy. The producers should realise that the product is not up to scratch. I would be embarassed to put that dvd on the shelf, however I will probably never be in a dvd. Just remember, public figures always open themselves up to comment from strangers.

@Habib,
jeez bud. I feel that I have the right to voice my opinion, especially when I have paid for something. I have been shark fishing for a short while only and can honestly say that I did not learn a thing from the Transkei screemin reels(the first one). Maybe someone that knows absolutely nothing or has never caught a decent shark would get more value out of it. I agree that most of us are novices, but we are still human beings who have a right to our opinion. I also dont like slagging people and that is where the issue lies. Some people tend to get nasty instead of politely making their case. I respect you and your opinion. :)
