The Fish On Africa Pro Staff Angling Team.

Evert Laubscher

The first Tuna for the day.My passion for fishing started at a very early age, as I grew up in the Lowveld of Mpumalanga, and there were many farm dams and rivers with some excellent fishing. I have always been more of a lure angler, and thus my target species in my early years were mainly Largemouth Bass, Tigerfish, Sharptooth catfish, and various Tilapia species.

I have since developed a love for various facets of fishing, including saltwater jigging and popping, and saltwater drop shot fishing. I love sharing my experiences on the water with others and therefore write trip reviews for various South African fishing magazines.

I started fishing competitively at the age of 7 as this when my passion for fishing kicked in! Since then I have fished all over South Africa as well as at several venues in our neighbouring countries such as the Zambezi River, Kafue River, Letsibogo and Cahorra Bassa.

I have earned 5 Junior Protea Caps and am busy working my way towards Senior Protea colours. I love catching all species of fish; from the smallest barbs to the biggest catfish.

I was born into a family of passionate fisherman which soon ignited my love for the outdoors, adventure and fishing! Growing up I spent every spare moment camping and fishing.

I enjoy travelling in search of secluded waters and fish for a number of species using different techniques from fly fishing through to rock and surf fishing. I have fished in South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, Tanzania as well as the UK and Seychelles.

Ek woon in die Noord-kaap, anderkant Upington en is ‘n wingerd boer. Ek het my visvang loopbaan begin toe ek 9 jaar oud was. Eerst het ek in Namibia gewoon en langs die kus gehengel vir kabeljou en steenbras.

Later is ek Pretoria toe; hier het ek begin met oewerhengel, proewe gehengel en aan die weermag span behoort sowel as Junior Noord Transvaal klere verwerf. Na jare se oewerhengel het ek oorgeskuif na spesiehengel.

I started fishing before I could walk, and it has since become my greatest passion in life.

My father being an avid deep sea and estuary angler gave me the opportunity learn many techniques and target species all around South Africa from a young age. My obsession with the ocean conservation has helped shaped who I am today.
