hello and welcome

Hello and welcome, and thank you for coming by and having a look at my site and finding your way to my blog. Well, that’s me the Mad Zimbo Angler. 

A little about how I came up with the name Mad Zimbo Angler. Well, it’s kinda easy. I always got told I am mad, not angry mad but more sometimes crazy mad. Zimbo is short for Zimbabwean and angler well I love my fishing and hey presto the Mad Zimbo Angler was born.

I am in my late 30’s now. I am married to a very loving and supportive wife. I have two beautiful young daughters who I love to the moon and back.

Malaysia is my home and has been for the last four years. I have decided to start this blog as I really want to showcase what Malaysia has to offer everyone with regards to fishing and outdoor life here. I also want to share my knowledge of fishing and to teach budding anglers out there.  I would also like to help local guides here earn a living by promoting their services in different parts of Malaysia to enable them to grow their businesses and be able to support their families. 

One of the great things about fishing is that it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from or what language you speak, fishing is a sport and/or hobby that can bridge gaps and language barriers. Through fishing, you are still able to communicate through hand signals and gestures, which has been my experience wherever I have fished in the world. Great time on the water can be experienced through exhilarating cheers of gaining a new personal best to the lows of losing a fish. Fishing is a universal sport, which does not have restrictions nor does it discriminate; as fishing is all about the angler, his rod, line, lure, water and fish.

Whilst my blogs are my writing and sharing of experiences, I hope it will be able to guide and teach others who wish to learn. If there is anything you would like to know or for me to blog about, you can easily reach me via the contact page. I hope through my blog and sharing of experiences to engage my readers and where possible to help other anglers.
