The sight of fishermen, or sometimes just their fishing rods, clambering over the rocks at Noetzie is a common one.
You too can enjoy this coastal pastime but rules do apply.
You can read more about which permits you require on the Western Cape Government website http://www.westerncape.gov.za/eng/directories/services/11489/21501
Please also keep an eye on the tide and weather, the coastal waves can get very big and often covers paths used at low tide.
Should you prefer someone else catching and preparing your fish, you can still make an informed choice with regard to the conservation status of your meal by visiting www.wwfsassi.co.za or picking one of their brochures at participating suppliers.
Here’s to safe and happy fishing!
