“I love most outdoor activities and am fortunate to live next to the beautiful Indian Ocean. I enjoy swimming and snorkelling, paddling on a SUP to the nearby island, have just taken up kite surfing lessons and like to take my dog for walks on the beach. But most of all, I like going out on a sportfishing boat, searching for the tell-tale signs of fish, rigging my rods and hearing the reels sing.
“To outwit the cunning yellowfin tuna, king mackerel, giant trevally, sailfish, marlin and dorado that live in Tanzanian waters requires skill and patience. Some days I don’t even get a single strike, other days we feast on sashimi. I quite like dressing and preparing the fish too! I’m active in the Dar es Salaam Yacht Club’s fishing section and take part in their fishing competitions as often as I can.”
