On a recent Rusticus wine marketing trip to Holland I had a few hours to spend exploring Amsterdam. What a beautiful city, once off the beaten track and away from the city center it was truly fantastic. I generally have a great sense of direction, but it was quite challenging negotiating my way through this city with its criss-crossing alleys & canals, with so many bridges all looking alike.
This is the Misverstand Dam near Piketberg in the Cape, it forms part of the Berg River and is a great spot for Carp & Barbel fishing. Apparently, there are bass here too.........but judging from our weekend of hard fishing & the fact that we caught no bass, plus the poor quality of the water, I doubt it.
Perhaps peculiar subject matter, but on a recent fishing trip I took these macros of a Carp's scales (no, I didn't catch it, I had a terrible fishing weekend......luckily the campers next to us knew what they were doing!)
