Adrian De WaalAdrian De Waal  BVSc (Dist)
Mixed Animal Veterinarian

Adrian is a vet hailing from South Africa. During his time as a student, he mostly enjoyed working with companion animals and since graduating he has discovered a passion for mixed animal practice. Adrian started trout fishing from a very early age but studied and worked far away from any trout fishing areas, so he is very excited about being able to take up this hobby again. Adrian also enjoys jogging and being outdoors, which is more enjoyable in Pahiatua than in the 30-degree heat of Mafikeng.
