Fishy Tales aims to provide insight into our life as a fishing couple, living our dream… fishing and travelling the world – making our passion our career. Join us on our journey – the up’s, the down’s, the ones that got away and the ones that didn’t!
About us, the fishy folk:
We are currently situated in Port Elizabeth, on the south coast of South Africa expanding our brand, whilst raising our little daughter, Stella!
Previously, we were based at Flamingo Lodge in southern Angola, on the unspoilt west coast of Africa. Flamingo is based on the beach and is primarily a fishing lodge which gave us both the opportunity to further our careers, together, as well as to FISH on a daily basis! It was a tough job BUT somebody had to do it!
Chenelle de Beer is an Ichthyologist, currently completing her PhD through Rhodes University. Her studies have primarily focused on tasty, tentacled critters- squid, octopus and cuttlefish however anything living in saltwater peaks her curiosity. Whilst completing her studies, she oversees the day to day running of the lodge.
Carlos Moran is an ex-commercial fisherman who for the last ten years has been a professional fishing guide. This has taken him to all corners of the world including South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Sao Tome, Scotland, Spain, Florida, Guatemala and Angola.
Together, we try to ignite the passion we have for the ocean in the hearts of others, whilst emphasising the importance of conservation efforts such as “Catch and Release”!
