There is brave, there is crazy…and then there is this.

South African real estate agent Grant Campbell got a shock that left him scratching his eyes this week when he found a very quirky fisherman a couple of kilometres from shore.

The man’s “boat” was an inflatable rubber tyre and his “motor” was a pair of fluorescent flippers. Clad in shorts and a T-shirt, he was dangling a line over the side of his craft.

“2km out to sea I see this man fishing for dinner, I couldn’t believe it …Tractor tyre and a pair of flippers, I had to give him some of our fishes for his hard work !!!,” Mr Campbell said in a Facebook post that has since been shared more than 1200 times.

Mr Campbell’s photos have made it as far as WA angling sites and his new fishing friend’s activities have been received with a mix of admiration, awe and horror.

“That’s hectic, shame a shark is going to get him,” one comment read.

Kwa-Zulu Natal, the province in which Mr Campbell’s home town of Mount Edgecombe is located, has a lengthy history of shark activity, including Black December of 1957 – when a total of nine attacks across four months claimed six lives.
