Sardine Frenzy

One of the biggest tourist attractions on the coastline of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa is the annual Sardine Frenzy, where shoals of migrating sardines, as long as 7km, are forced by warm currents to swim very close to the shore. Hundreds of people will congregate to either spectate or participate, as nets are cast and huge numbers of fish are hauled up the beaches. Naturally, all this activity in the water and the inevitable sardine casualties it creates attracts larger, predatory fish and therefore great opportunities for the sports angler. Sharks are there in force and Wesley Peens is determined to catch one of these beasts. He is also after one of his favourite species the Kob, which requires slightly more cunning and skill. The fishing's so good an early morning session runs on into the following night.
