About Us

Breezers Fishing was established in 2004, when the previous owners saw the need for a specialized tackle shop in one of the top fishing areas in the Garden Route, Knysna.

With Knysna having one of the best estuaries to fish on in South Africa as well as some of the best reefs for bottom fishing in the Southern Cape, Breezers was founded to fill the Gap in the market for a one stop tackle shop.

Breezers fishing are run by the owners, Louis Theron, Gerrie Barnard, Seppie Vlotman and the shop manager, Poena Bruwer. All of these guys are avid fisherman who will always be able to point in the right direction and give you the best advice from their personal experiences being it with Light Tackle Fishing, Deep Sea, Estuary based fishing and Rock and Surf fishing. The team really knows their products and will always help out novice fisherman with purchasing the right tackle first time round.


Breezers fishing are more than just a tackle shop, it is a place where fishing enthusiasts can come and shop for the right tackle at very competitive prices, or even come and sit and chat away to the guys who are passionate about fishing.

Poena Bruwer
Poena started fishing at the tender age of 7 and through out his childhood, constantly nagged his step-dad to take him fishing.

The first fish he caught was a spotted grunter and since that day he was hooked for life. At the age of 9 (2003) he fished in his first fishing competition, and that was the start of great things to come from this Talented fisherman.

In 2006, Poena was rated at 11th Overall in Southern cape (For Seniors) and was 1st in the Junior's.

In 2008 he captained the u/16 team at the Vaal river for the South African Nationals, where he ended up winning the first day. In 2011 he was ranked 4th in South Africa for LTB angling and achieved his SA U/21 colours.
