Anyone from South Africa?

Unread postAuthor: spud yeti » Thu Jul 12, 2007 8:23 am

Hello all!
I want to know if anyone is living in South Africa that builds spudguns. I just want to know so that we can discuss where stuff is bought, prices, general spud related etc!
So if you live in SA, or more importantly Cape Town, tell me please!

Good, all you SA ers can send my real pipe.Kenya has the junkiest pipe I have ever seen in my life.Don't drop it or you need a new piece.I wonder if they know that to be classified as PVC pipe it needs to be PVC not brittle plastic.

Maybe I need to take a trip to South Africa :idea:

im not from SA, but ive been there twice on account of relatives. they live in Johannesburg and...arg...damnit...a smallish town near Port Elizabeth, i think. ill have to ask my dad.

i really like the country, unfortunately its a wee bit of a hassle for us to get there.

also, has anyone here had Whitebait? its a really tiny fish that is sauteed/fried, and you eat 'em whole. they used to be really common, but they came from near newzealand, and they are starting to die/get fished out. last time i was in SA, amost no-one knew what they were.

In my opinion Joburg is the shittiest area of South Africa, but thats just my opion! Did you go to Jefferies Bay perhaps?
We have loads of small fish that you can eat whole, but I dont know if its specifically whitebait. I'll ask someone tomorrow :D
