John Hunter of the Village Angler was out on Jansen’s Dam, the DFFA club water, this morning and did well with a floating line and a gold ribbed hare’s ear and brush bugger fished gently just below the surface with the odd twitch. Despite very still conditions this did surprisingly well. He hears that dry fly, both DDD and March Brown are still taking fish and most of the destinations are reporting fair to good catches. The weekend rain which averaged about 35ml was very welcome and most dams are overflowing which is a good sign at the start of what is normally a dry winter.
At the TFFC’s Middelpunt waters the first batch of browns this year will be stocked on June 1, principally in Dams 1,2,3 and 5. More about the TFFC or to join go to www.tffc.co.za.
All the dams at the Machadodorp-Glenshee club are full and the stream is running well. A competition has been arranged for the 24 June. For more information phone Sarie at 079 6080734.
At last the district has received really good rains, possibly over 50ml, and the river is flowing well although few people have fished it recently. Big Sky also has their own Horseshoe Dam which is a good place for novices to try their hand. Phone Andrew at 013-7642682.
