The Mydo in Swakopmund: Leons Tackle Shop

The Mydo in Swakopmund

The Mydo in Swakopmund! Catching kob on plastics and spoons in Namibia!

The next time you are headed up the West Coast of Africa in search of bending rods and screaming reels, pop into Leons Tackle Shop in Swakopmund, and another in Henties Bay, to stock up on MYDO Luck Shots and SS Spoons.

Whilst in Henties and Swakop recently, the kob were going mad – all in the 10 to 12kg size range. Anglers were dotted up and down the gruelling coastline – this is another type of fishing that’s for sure. With the baking desert behind and the ice cold ocean in front, conditions here are harsh – but oh so worth it!

And the kob really dig it here too!

Leons has been servicing the local angler fraternity for an eternity, advice from the crew there is invaluable and contemporay. The fish seem to move up and down the coast in huge shoals so it’s common to see well rigged 4×4 vehicles tearing up and down that famous coastal road all day and night long. So knowing where the fish are and what they are feeding on is vital to the success of your efforts.

Hit Leons and get the inside information!

Namibia’s restless neighbour to the north – Angola, is another stomping ground of the Leon’s team – their shop walls are adorned with photos of amazing fish – some you will not even guess what are! Advice for trips this far north also emanates from Leon’s, who do trips up to their secret spots in Angola, quite often. With amazing results…

And then in closing, check this out…!

For a taster of the kind of fish you could be tussling with, this fish was taken in 1937 by brothers Frits and Heinrich Cruys, in the Swakopmund lagoon. It weighed 175lbs!!! You can by MYDOs in Swakopmund, at Leons Fishing Tackle.

  1. Leon,

    Ek hoop ek is by die regte person. Sover ek kan onthou het jy vir my gese dat jy Light Tackle hengel vir Namibia. Ek vervaardig GARIEP SUPER DIPS en het jy so n paar jaar terug vir my gevra oor my produkte o.a. G-String wat glo goed gewerk het vir Muddies in die Hartdam.
    Ek verneem dat julle die Wereld Kampioenskappe by Gariep Dam gaan hou binnekort. Ek is tans woonagtig by Gariep Dam en as jy jou mail adres vir my kan stuur, kan ek fotos van my produkte vir jou stuur. Namibia, Zimbawe asook S.A het onlangs ook hier gehengel en het die S.A. Span basies met van my produkte o.a my Fish Bullets gehengel. As julle wel hier kom hengel, laat weet my en ek kan julle baie help.

    Groete
