LOOKING BACK AT A SUCCESSFUL YEAR As the year draws to an end, it is always satisfying to look back and revel in one’s achievements, including one’s personal bests. Someone who certainly has several of these to boast of is Molli van der Merwe, who achieved no more than five personal bests during the year: each one an improvement on the last. At the same time, she made good on her resolution to go fishing as often as she could. In addition to Molli’s exploits, freshwater anglers can read about the adventures of Evert Laubscher and Rudolph Venter, who went fishing in the Okavango Delta, and Rohan Koegelenberg who went drifting the Orange River in the vicinity of Riemvasmaak for the adventure of a lifetime. Saltwater anglers, on the other hand, can join Manie Combrinck as he tells us about Wayne Biljoen’s successful day on his kayak in Cape Vidal. This month, you can also read about some of the wonderful experiences of your fellow readers and fishing enthusiasts as they brag about their catches. The participants in the 30th Gamtoos Boat Angling Tournament made the most of this annual four-day competition near Port Elizabeth, and we congratulate Coen Zeelie on his catch during the South African championships, in which he participated in the category for sight-impaired anglers. We introduce a new series this month, which focuses on targeting specific species. This month, Chris Nolan gives anglers some tips on targeting bronze bream, which can be found from the southwestern Cape northwards up to KwaZulu-Natal, and has even been encountered in Mozambique. The editor and staff of Tight Lines would also like to make use of this opportunity to wish all its loyal readers and advertisers a joyous and peaceful festive season. If you are on the road, drive safely, and make the most of this precious time with your families and loved ones. Until next year, happy angling! Editor
