Very scarce white blonde boy..

Few blonde white boy in Africa Murat. But they are all worshipped here. Most can kill wild lion with bare hands. Especially useful when climbing out of airplane at airport and attacked by lion before claiming luggage. Bad problem here in africa .. lion. Some kill all lion in area and then start killing fishes after.

Spearo. a belated happy birthday and of course the line can go through the muzzle. I must have had a dyslexic moment. :)

Organize my shop?

But it IS organized .....

It's probably the best it's looked in a month .... and after a month of welding, drilling, sawing, grinding, sanding, painting ... well, you get the idea. And I'm working on a Jeep CJ2 at the same time as well ....

Just came back from Ramsgate last night ..... and I'm waiting for the photos. I lost a whole stringer of fish off Ramsgate (Little Billy Bay) there was some nice rockcods on and some breams, nothing too serious, and then I took a 6.2 Kg Yellowfin Tunny on Tuesday off Margate pier - about 100m offshore, in about 15m of water, with about 15m viz .... magical. Then of course I would go and completely screw up the rest of the week's diving by cuttin my foot on the rocks - twice.

Tuna was taken by my RA Rollergun .....

Hey Iya you are saying you live in fishless area but you have several pneumatics, MT0,standart2,baja,lots of bands, shafts......Are you using your spearguns for another porpouse rather than spearfishing???? May be for JackRabbit hunting from close range:D :D :D

Fishless under 125 miles from my home. I can always get to a "hot" zone............ but expensive ........... but my hot zone is probably 20% of any South African-s, Rig's , Sven and all the lucky dudes here.

Why I am packing all those guns is because if I ever go to those hot zone, I am ready. My old pneu and JBL is not something I proved good enough for those hot zone. The very first time I ever saw a big +-40kg Doog Tooth cruised by as I was hiding from the current at 80 feet on a rock, it was 6 meters away from me. I have no float too. Even if I shoot it :

1. It will never even touch the fish, my friend tried shooting it with the same JBL, 8mm shaft with 3 x 1/2 lousy band, what da ya expect.

2. If I managed to hit it, I will have to surrender my gun cause there is no way I can handle a 40kg without a float, which I do not have yet at that time.

3. Ever since I got my Riffes, I stop going to those hot places.....what a shit luck. If weather is OK, I might go this Thursday to Saturday....my friend just called me to join him. Wha ha ha ha ha.

4. This year has been the worst fish year for me and the worst viz, even for my Indian Ocean side...hard to believe.


Murat, I only have one pneu now a Mares Cyrano 85cm, for old time sake. All other 5 have been scrapped. My aluminum JBL too.
I keep buying Riffe because it is fun to play with it and I do appreciate the engineering, also it has allow me to get more fish. My Baja #4 is just to prepare for the Tuna season, I have not even do more than 20 shots with it ( all at plywood )..........bad viz and no worthy target. Basicaly I like spearguns, I like the look of it. Since I kind of slow down on my air-guns, the budget now goes to spearguns. Hunting also give me excuse to be away on weekends at the islands :eek: :eek:, if u know what I mean... :D :D
