My friend and intrepid adventurer Neil Barnard of NB Safaris called me up one day and said, “how would you and Debbie like to come over and visit our old friend Charles Lee in Inhassoro and do some fishing?” “We’ll be right over”, I replied. On the dusty ride up from Vilanculos to Inhassoro, I learned that the fishing would be a tournament, The Deep Blue Bill Challenge, and the Captain’s Meeting was set for this evening. Tired as we were from traveling, we pitched up to Rosha Family Seafood Lapa to size up the seven other teams that had entered the competition and get some key instructions from our old friend Jean Rossouw, the tournament director. Jean had organized a lavish bash, with a delicious brai, live music, and plenty of drinks. All the locals assembled; this was going to be a big deal! Another surprise awaited; the prize was to be entry to the 2020 World Offshore Billfishing Championship in Costa Rica! We were more determined than ever to make a good showing.
