There is not much to report this month as water temperatures are still on the high side for trout fishing in our local dams but fortunately they are full, Sand River being 90% and Bulk River at 100% which is well above the other dams in the PE area. As may be seen below the next club trip is this weekend at Thrift.

I have recently resigned as chairman for the Eastern Cape Chapter of FOSAF and Martin von Holdt has taken over this post. Martin of course is one of the sons of the famous and late Brian and Sophie von Holdt.
As Eastern Cape Chapter we will be hosting the National AGM and Exco meeting at the Angler & Antelope in Somerset East on 29 April, 2017. Needless to say there will be fly fishing available at the many well stocked waters nearby.
