Fishing the North Coast: High hopes for Saturday’s salmon opener

first_imgThe recreational salmon season is set to reopen this Saturday, and all the signs up and down the coast look extremely promising. The entrance, and Humboldt Bay itself, are still teeming with both sardines and anchovies. The coastline — both north and south and 2 to 3 miles in length — is also stuffed with bait. The water out front of Trinidad is holding the brown, cool water that salmon crave, and the birds are working over the big schools of bait.Salmon have also been seen swimming on the …last_img

SA sport’s debt of gratitude to Mandela

first_img11 December 2013 Some of South Africa’s leading sports stars, past and present, have been reflecting on the contribution of former president Nelson Mandela to their sports and lives in the wake of the great man’s passing last Thursday. In September, Greg Minnaar thrilled the home crowd’s when he wore a Nelson Mandela-themed helmet on his way to being crowned mountain bike downhill champion for a third time in Pietermaritzburg. He spoke about the helmet and Mandela in a recent interview with Kevin McCullum. ‘At home in South Africa’ “The idea for the helmet came around the emotion of being back at home in South Africa at the World Champs,” Minnaar said. “His health was poor and the country was thinking of him, but he was the man who defined the nation. He was our leader, and I could think of no better tribute to him – well, apart from winning the World Champs as well, I suppose. “I told my helmet company what I wanted,” Minnaar said. “They always get the concept right. They took the quote I had chosen and wrapped it around the helmet. I chose green, gold and black, more for the colours of Nelson Mandela’s party than for the green and gold of the national colours. “I wanted it to be for him.” The quote on the helmet read: “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” “Those words were, for me, the essence of Madiba,” said Minnaar. “He was all about sacrifice and building a new South Africa.” Springboks ‘owe thanks to Madiba’ Former Springbok captain John Smit, taking part in the golf Pro-Am at the Nelson Mandela Championship on the Mount Edgecombe Country Club course on Tuesday, spoke to Michael Vlismas about the great man after whom the tournament is named. “He did a huge amount of work in preserving the Springbok and the emblem, and I think he took a lot of criticism for it from his peers at the time,” Smit said. “A large amount of thanks is due to Madiba for what he did for the Springbok team. “The amount of time and effort he put into us, coming to see us, coming to games with us, flying over to Paris for the 2007 Rugby World Cup to wish us luck, and people will forever remember his part in the 1995 Rugby World Cup and him walking out in the number six jersey – it’s that fairytale that he created and made a reality in our country that makes us as sportsman all love him.”‘He had that common touch’ Cricket great Shaun Pollock, like Smit a former national captain, also spoke to Vlismas on Tuesday, telling him about a phone call he received from Madiba on his wedding day. “He phoned me to wish me luck,” Pollock said. “It was just after he had married Graca Machel. And when I was relieved of my captaincy duties he called me to congratulate me on how I handled the issue. “He had that common touch,” Pollock said. “He understood you from a personal perspective. He would ask you about your kids and the team and so on. It wasn’t just a courtesy call. There was always more depth to it.”‘Tremendous thanks’ Former Bafana Bafana striker Shaun Bartlett also had fond memories of Mandela. “As sportsmen we have to give tremendous thanks to him,” he said this week. “If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have been able to play in the United Kingdom and further my career. “And he came and attended my wedding, which remains one of the greatest days of my life,” Bartlett said. “I’m privileged and honoured to have lived in an era where Madiba changed a lot, not only for this country but the whole world.”Madiba Magic Mandela’s love of sports was well documented and for a time it seemed that every person or team that came in contact with him derived some “Madiba Magic” from the man as they went on to great successes. Most famously, in South Africa’s early days as a democracy, with his very visible backing, the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup in 1995, and Bafana Bafana were crowned champions of Africa in 1996 when South Africa hosted the Africa Cup of Nations.‘Such a humble man’ “It was amazing when he presented me with the trophy,” former Bafana Bafana captain Neil Tovey told Eyewitness News on Friday. He’s such a humble man, and I learned a lot from the experience of chatting to him and talking to him.” Remembering another occasion, Tovey added: “On the day he was inaugurated, we were playing Zambia, but he still came down to see the match. He realised how important sport was to help unify the country. “Words can’t express the deep condolences we need to express to the family and to everyone involved,” Tovey said. “Africans have lost their favourite son.”last_img read more

Big surprise that no one picked Ganguly: Akram

first_imgThe snub to Sourav Ganguly in the IPL players auction shocked his former Kolkata IPL team bowling coach Wasim Akram, who said he expected any of the other franchise to pick the ex-India captain for his “experience and leadership qualities”.In a major embarrasment for Ganguly, he was not picked by his home team Kolkata Knight Riders or any of the other franchises after two rounds of bidding last week.Sourav Ganguly.”Ganguly is a dear friend of mine. I thought he would be picked up by some franchise for his experience and leadership qualities. But it was a big surprise when he was totally ignored,” Akram said from Karachi, hinting that the IPL Kolkata team never had plans to hire the Prince of Kolkata.If the snub to Ganguly shocked Akram, the former Pakistan skipper was more surprised when there were no takers for dashing West Indian batsman Chris Gayle.”I just can’t believe it. Gayle is a game-changer but probably never fit the scheme of things for many teams. Maybe, teams think that Gayle does not help youngsters in the side,” said Akram.Akram believes IPL Kolkata have made a gamble by buying injury-plagued Australian tearaway pacer Brett Lee in the IPL auction last weekend.”Lee is part of Australia’s World Cup plans. He is playing Twenty20 in the KFC Big Bash. But there is certainly a risk involved with him or any other fast bowler for that matter. He might have been out of action for a year and a half but he is now fit and hungry. He is surely a threat to any opposition and he is a kind of gamble that any franchise would love to take,” he said.advertisementAkram said it was bull’s eye for KKR when Yusuf Pathan was bagged for USD 2.1 million.”KKR definitely had a plan to catch top marquee Indian players. But I think they had planned for one and got two.Both (Gautam) Gambhir and Yusuf are match-winners. Gambhir is a good mix of calmness and aggression. Yusuf, on the other hand, is a useful bowler and a very good fielder,” Akram said.- With PTI inputslast_img read more
