Born in Durban where I fished a lot in my younger years. While working on cruise liners as a waiter, I spent my off days, when we were in port, fishing for fun. I really grew to love fishing and have fished all over the world. When I was back home, I continued fishing and started doing ocean fishing before changing back to the river. I'm always experimenting with different baits and techniques.
