onion syrup

Onion Syrup – A great weapon to have in your arsenal

It happens all the time… your bite tempo takes a sudden unexplained dip and your usual tactics are not working.  The clock is winding down, the hooter is looming and you would love to add a few more to your tally.

Many of us limit oursleves to buying all the local dips that are available on the market. We’ve stopped thinking outside the realm of our trusted well-known brands of dips, balldips and sprays.

the carp senses

The Carp’s senses – How do they find their food?

Like humans, carp are dependent upon their senses when it comes to food. Carp can smell, taste and see the food that they plan to eat. They have a highly developed olfactory system that allows them to sense any dissolved substance in the water. The lining of their mouths contains chemically sensitive cells that allow it to determine whether food is good or bad. The carp can see by using both eyes. However, if an item is immediately in front of and below its mouth, the carp relies on its barbuls’ sense of touch and taste to detect items.

the fish care

The fish care debate…

It’s a weekly, if not daily occurrence… a social angler posts a picture of the catch of his life on social media, looking forward to the positive feedback and congratulations, only to be met with criticism from fellow anglers, mostly specimen carp anglers, for not using an unhooking mat, for having a keep net in the background of the photograph, or for not holding the fish correctly. There have been some nasty debates on public forums in this regard and it has become a very contentious issue.

dam contours

Dam Contours

Remember that standard seven Geography class when you asked the teacher why learning how to read contours on a map will help you when you are all grown up? Well, today we answer that question. A topographic map of a dam shows all the features of the submerged area, e.g. submerged “koppies”, deep holes, drop-offs, ledges, flats and points. These are all shown by the contour lines, namely a series of concentric lines running all around the dam. These denote the topography of the entire submerged area. Each line represents the depth of the water at that particular point.
