    I went down to the North Coast for a few days to relax and do some snorkeling. Weather was a bit bad most of the time but on Saturday i went down to Thomsonsbay in the afternoon on low tide and had a few good dives along the beach towards Ballito. Saw some nice Butterflies but not easy to catch.
    On my way back i stopped at the Tidel pool and had a dive there as well not to do any collection as i'ts against the law. There were two young guys also snorkeling in the pool and the one guy started talking to me and he told me that he's also a member on MASA forum, even gave me his forum name. I told him about the fish i saw along the beach and they left.
    A few minutes later they were back asking if i had any luck and i said what luck but you could see they were not very happy about my answer, all they do is try and peep in my bucket what was cooking and they left.
    I left about ten minutes later and here the shit started, on my way up to the parking area the life saver asked me if i've got a permit, and i replied What for, he said for diving and catching fish in the tidel pool. I said you must be crazy, do you see any fish. By the way do you need a permit to swim in a pool, i was really pissed of. No i don't see any fish but the two youngsters that had been talking to me previously phoned the Parksboard and they are waiting for you to lock you up.
    Got nothing to hide, started laughing to myself on the way up and at the parking bay, guess whow!! MR PARKSBOARD, very nice guy and he told me the whole story. Not guilty, i wonder who made a ass of himself.

    I GOT A VALID PERMIT, I KNOW THE RULES AND REGULATIONS, I DO PROTECT AND RESPECT THE ENVIOROMENT SO GET OUT OF MY LIFE.
    REMEMBER THIS, THE WHEEL IS TURNING SLOWLY AND PRAY THAT WE NEVER MEET.

    YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND HAVE NO BACK BONE, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU TRY AND SPY OR DO ANY HARM TO OTHERS. IT'S PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT MAKES THIS WORLD WHAT IT IT'S TODAY.ACCORDING TO YOUR BEHAVIOUR I WONDER ABOUT ALL YOUR STUFF IN YOUR TANK, DID YOU BUY IT OR BY POACHING (AS YOU TOLD ME THAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR LIVE ROCK WHEN WE HAD THE CONVERSATION, AND I TOLD YOU I'TS NOT LEGAL)
    SO PLEASE BOETIE PULL YOUSELF TOGETHER, YOU ARE STILL WET BEHIND THE EARS, GOT ALLOT TO LEARN.

    REGARDS DAVE.

    "SO PLEASE BOETIE PULL YOUSELF TOGETHER, YOU ARE STILL WET BEHIND THE EARS, GOT ALLOT TO LEARN."

    p.s. Dave, there is a 'boetie' on this forum and he may think you are reffering to him with that quote :D

    Maybe he was just jealous that a non-local could collect somethings where he totally failed.

    Guys I understand your frustration, but please watch the language, I already had to edit some posts today, on other threads as well. There are smillies to use rather than words. This is a family forum, so keep it clean please.
    Thanks
