Veldrift lies on the northern shores of the Berg River estuary. This spot is on the outskirts of town, where the small "Bokkom" boats operate from. The fishermen net for the small fish locally known as Bokkoms (Harders).
The dirt road is regarded, unofficially, as a national monument. Here large schools of Harders are netted and turned into bokkoms. All along this road there are rows of fish strung on ropes under reed shelters. The little fish are salted and then tied up with needle and string, hanging them to dry in the wind. Small fishing boats with oars, used for setting the harder net, lie alongside dilapidated old, wooden quays, adding to the quaintness and charm of this area.
