We have some exciting news, as some of you may know Diesel has started his own charter company specializing in Barbel. If you go onto his facebook page, highveld charters, you will see some of the amazing fish that he has caught in the waters he is now guiding on. Got my blood pumping that's for sure.
In regards to this,Diesel got in touch with me last week with an absolutely fantastic idea. Why don't we have a social/competition to welcome this new and exciting development in South African catfishing. As CatFish Africa i would like to encourage us all to support this event and also Diesel as this is a step in the right direction for our much loved sport.
Lets get together for a good fish at the Vaal Marina. Diesel has arranged a fantastic spot to really get stuck into some good sized barbel. There will be camping available for those who don't want to leave their rods along with some more luxurious accommodation along with a boat launch so you can explore the area in search of that monster Mr Whiskers.
As there is a competition type theme here, there will be some prizes.
1St Prize-Diesel has very kindly offered up a days charter trip on the boat as first prize. (Thanks Diesle)
This would be an amazing opportunity for the winner of the comp to get stuck into some serious catfsih.
As CatFish Africa i will sponsor some caps and Shirts for other prizes and we will see what we can arrange and organize for some others. If any one out there wants to help sponsor a prize give us a shout.
Depending on the interest we will be able to hold some bait rigging demos and a talk or 2 should you guys be interested. The main point here guys is to get us together, Catfishing is an amazing sport and its about dam time we started to take it seriously and build it in something really special. This for me is one of the first steps, and i would like to take this opportunity to thank diesel and also congratulate him on this first step. I wish you all the best of luck and will be booking to do a CatFish Africa DVD in the not so distant future. As im sure most guys here will agree, anything we or i can do to help just let me know.
Let us know what you think guys. I think this is an great platform for us all and a great way to get this all started.
