    Was up fishing last week in Transkei. Just thought I'd share some pics.
    If you haven't yet heard of or stayed at The Spotted Grunter, then its definitely worth a look. Awesome place.

    Its difficult to show how amazing this place really is. You have to experience it for yourself. Photo's don't do it justice.

    Looks awsome did you fish the river at all or only the sea? Looks like there are a few waves there aswell but the lurkys up there chow people.
    I was there once many years ago. But the weather was terrable. Looks awsome in your photos
