Arthur Cary reports that although there were plenty of shad around a month ago with big crowds using conventional tackle over weekends trying to catch them it has been very quiet for the last fortnight with the conditions made more difficult by rough seas. Despite this the club plans to meet this weekend at South Broom to try both rock and surf and the estuary. There are not great hopes for the estuary fishing anywhere along the coast. Although it has been a mild winter the estuaries still need to warm up considerably before they start fishing well.

On the 27th August the club has an outing to fish for scalies (Natal yellows) in the nearby lower Umzimkulu.

This Wednesday evening the some of the members will be at a member’s house to tie two flies, the Half-a-Chicken and the Mud Shrimp This will be inpreparation for the meeting on 31st August.
