Fisherman, spearfisherman, nature lover and Ichthyologist. Growing up as a keen fisherman and outdoor lover I have always wanted to work with fish and in the outdoors. My passion for fish and love for the sea has lead me to being a keen marine based ichthyologist. I am currently living my dream as an Ichthyologist working on South Africa's recreational spearfishery.
