John Hunter of the Village Angler reports that the weather was in the main miserable over the long weekend with cold, wind and plenty of mist. Probably the most popular flies used were black patterns used on an intermediate line but there was also a demand for dry flies from the shop.
Good catches were reported from TFFC’s Middelpunt waters, especially Dam 7 while a few of the browns stocked on June 1 were caught and released. It was also reported that the cable method used for weeding the other dams had cleared large areas.
All the dams at the Machadodorp-Glenshee club are full and despite the chilly weather the long weekend saw plenty of trout caught. A competition has been arranged for the 24 June which is open to all. For more information phone Sarie at 079 6080734 or Bok at 082 2557290.
Although the river flow has improved since April and the river is flowing adequately few people have fished it recently including the long weekend. Big Sky also has their own Horseshoe Dam which is a good place for novices to try their hand. Phone Andrew at 013-7642682.
