This is a RR with a difference, combined with fly fishing, great :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

We used to go to Barkley East often, your photo's took me back some years, beautiful area, walking those streams for days, and Grey Wing shooting :mwink: :thumleft:

Thanks for RR and the photo's :thumleft:

Pepe, it's about 20km out of Lady Grey, towards Barkley East.

Well worth a visit  :thumleft:

It would have been good to have you and your experiance at Lupela to show us how to fish those deep crystal clear water holes,I'm sure the big mothers were hiding in them. :thumleft:
