Shepard’s Delight

Before I left the old country I had had it with the sun. Our relationship had gone sour to say the least – like expired dairy products, or a dead body after 5 days. I was SO OVER the aggressive, scorching rays that seemed to follow me all day and kept the air sweltering hot […]

A Fish and a Baby

Last month I had my first ‘attempted’ float-tube-fishing experience while pregnant. I have moved on from the trauma that is the first trimester and established myself quite comfortably into the second, so thought nothing of it.

My dizzy spells were all but gone (a lovely symptom of pregnancy that I suffered quite a lot with), my energy levels […]

Sand-Shark fishing in Langebaan

Last week, Husband and I tried out our hand at catching guitarfish on fly (sand-sharks). I was torn between not wanting to be left out and not usually being one for salt-water fly-fishing, but when I saw the gorgeous pink flies that would be used, I had to be let in on the deal! In […]

Chinese Blooming Tea – not just a lovely cuppa, but a classy way to swear

Next time you go for a cup of tea, give the Tea Merchant's Chinese Blooming Tea a try. Put the unassuming acorn in a pot of hot water and it turns your morning elevensies into a ritualistic experience. And if there’s one thing tea should be, it’s a ritualistic experience.

A Majestic Weekend Away

Husband and I have a thing about Scotland. Maybe it’s the heritage we both have in our family lines, or the history saturated landscapes, or the fact that there are giant salmon to be caught in its inland waters, but we both love it and have a romanticised view of the Highlands.

Cape Town of course […]

Five Reasons to Fly Fish (other than to fish)

When I tell people that my husband takes me fly fishing, I usually get faced with disbelief from men and pitying side-glances from women. Some go so far as to say ‘Oh, you poor thing’ while nodding knowingly and sympathetically. When I protest and explain that I love to fly fish – that it started […]

The One That Got Away

Every fisherman has a story; a sad tale of lost glory, missed victory, of the mystical unicorn-of-the-deep that got away. The fish we didn’t catch. Only my tale is of a fish I did catch.

Winter in the Western Cape may call for most to stay indoors, bundled up with mugs of steaming hot chocolate and […]
