Although the flyfishing season in the Border estuaries is coming to an end with the onset of winter the rivers are still nice and clean and relatively warm. There has been little fly fishing done along the coast as our local trout dams, Maden and Gubu are producing well but anglers using conventional tackle are catching grunter and kob so there are fish to target. I think there will also still be small yellowtail kingfish around and of course there are always young garrick in the rivers but very few adults so far and we have not seen skipjack for some time.
