Julius grew up in Bethlehem in the Free State and has been fishing from 11 years of age. He mostly fished the dams and lakes around Bethlehem and achieved a conventional PB of 12.6kg which was caught at Loch Lomond Lake at the time. He has as a conventional angler at that stage even tried to incorporate fish safe strategies in his own way like using only 1 hook and stronger line than his friends at the time. Many fish was indeed lost out of his hands as he tried to rather take care of the fish in the water than to take it out on the bank to get hurt. He mostly left the keep net at home and has later given it away as he was of the opinion that it was hurting the fish and he did not like it at all.
Julius started to practice Specimen Angling from February 2009 and resides in Bloemfontein. He is currently targeting lakes in the Bloemfontein and Kimberley areas as he has the ambition to catch a 40lb Carp in the Free State first before moving on to venues in the northern parts of the country. He took ownership of SA Carp Angling Solutions (SACS), then the SA Carp Society, from 1 November 2009 and SACS has grown tremendously as a company in subscribers and has also established proper venues for its members to fish. SACS is also involved in various activities at its venues where a definite positive impact on fishing resources can be observed.
