Fishing-trips anywhere in the world. Fishing is the ultimate adventure vacation! I have been fortunate to live and work in many locations around the world and going fishing was part of the fun and adventure.
FISHING IN AFRICA
I first wet my line in Durban in the mid seventies, and I have been hooked on fishing in South Africa ever since and made many fishing expeditions. Anyone who has ever had fishing-trips and loves saltwater fishing out of Capetown will know what I am talking about. Great sport, and great eating.
In fact for those who think Africa is off limits for fishing trips, once you spend a vacation in Capetown you will be going back. I used to work and fish in Macambique, Kenya and Tanzania back in the mid seventies. It is untouched as far as sport fishing goes and some really great fishing is possible.
Many people are put off by the notion of heading to Mocambique however the darker days of political instability in the 1970's and 80's are disappearing, and it's a cheap destination for great fishing.
They beer is also good and don't forget to try some hot and spicy Peri-peri prawns (shrimp) or some of the great mud crab when there. If you plan it right you could drive across from South Africa and squeeze in a visit to Kruger National Park as well. It's just been expanded to a large section of Mocambique and the trip into the park is just awesome.
I worked recently in Namibia and it is just a gem of a place, make some fishing trips there before the tourists find out about it. It's a safe place, and the fishing is just terrific.
Another recent vacation included the Cape Verde Islands, it's off the track a bit but if you are into offshore game fishing trips then it's a treat and fish out of Fogo island, don't forget to climb the volcano while there!

FISHING TRIPS IN AUSTRALIA
Australia is home to Rex Hunt, someone familiar to the TV viewers in so many countries around the world, and this guy gets the best fishing trips of all. Of course you don't have to kiss every fish. I started my addiction to fishing on my first fishing-trips and the first time I threw in a line from an old wharf and landed a very edible Bream. After that it has been endless fishing-trips forever chasing everything from sweet tasting Sand Whiting, Flathead and Tailor off the beach, then offshore for Red Snapper and Dorado or the elusive Jewfish and more. Of course I must mention the challenge and patience required of fishing for the elusive Blackfish using my dearly departed grandfathers antique cane fishing rod. I also had the good fortune to spend several months working on a new ship project in the more remote parts of the Gulf of Carpentaria in Northern Australia. Having a lot of spare time I used it to make many fishing-trips at every opportunity. The quest for Barramundi was never ending and the sheer number of other species prevents any boredom.
