Fishing, Cooking, Photographic TV Program on the Web
Joe Lategan travels to South Africa’s biodiversity hotspots or little unknown corners of this gem of Africa– Always with a fishing rod to test the waters, cook an indigenous meal and take great photos of the biodiversity of the areas and general information is shared with the viewer. Programs cover Northern Cape –Orange river- Namaqualand, Kgalagadi park, Kruger National and area, North Eastern Cape-Rhodes , Overberg in the Western Cape (South and North), Lesotho etc.
Its basically a show that reflects on Southern African beauty with a dash of fishing, bush cooking, still photography, nature and general issues as a traveller would experience the different areas. It however is not the general travel , fishing or cooking show. The show allows viewing for the family members that are not necessary fishermen nor cooks or photographers but will also greatly appeal to each one of these as well as the nature lover and traveller. The content can also be tweaked to include a genre of specific appetite to a degree.
….I caught a smallmouth yellowfish on fly and hooked it onto a rod while John was send to collect firewood. Me and David agreed to ask him to watch the rods while I hid away in the reeds next to the rods and David acted as if he knew nothing. I tightened the drag and told him if anything happens to my rod he will pay. As soon as the yellow got some energy back he did what was expected of him...and Johnny copied the fish eagles...
...One of the catfishes we caught this day
As we took loads of fresh herbs with for the week we had loads of fresh greens with every meal even on the Last days.
Another few clips of some of the fish and comments by fishermen...
One of many Catfish that we caught
I left the river camp and spent a afternoon and day in the Kalahari Gemsbok park where I take you on a quick game drive during the first storms.
I return from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier to the river camp late and when I woke up the chaps were onto the cats again before the coffee water was boiling. We catch some yellowfish on fly rods and I drove to the Augrabies falls a few km’s away to cook a “waterblommetjie” and game sausage “potjie”.

The old Livingston Liquor store. Off course it is not in use anymore.
To be loaded soon
All were slowly fried on the fire, dished out while the beaten egg was slowly done in the pan. When the eggs were ready the fried ingredients were served on top of the eggs on a slice of toast roasted on the fire. A bit of grated Parmegiano regiano topped the meal. ( the real deal parmesan cheese)
