Very nice fish Wooly, I'm jelous  :biggrin:

I caught myself looking for a place in Underberg/Himeville the other day, my Dad used to have a farm there on the Umzimkulu river and I still rate it as one of the best fishing areas in the country. Really miss it. It's just too far for a weekend jaunt from JHB though.

Plenty of long weekends. Make a plan? Kamberg is close to the Big Smoke. Plenty of good places to stay for cheap. Just avoid KransAap's place in Rossetta. He is a swindler of note and will drink all of your beer.

When you have the right gear it is not too bad. Some okes battle some use technology.
I think it is called "Black Magic"

Would have loved to show my pics but the 2 I caught here in the Groot Marico River on Sunday both got away unfortunately.  Reeled them in - had them on the ground - the hook came out and splash back into the water.  But I am going to try this afternoon again - watch this space!

Got this one today.

My personal best for sure.

15lb braid with 17lb Flurocarbon leader. Purple wiggly worm with a little flappy tail soft bait.

4 jumps out of the water, wasn't happy about being caught. My shoe is a size 11, and next pic may hand is touching the fish.

I guestimate at least 24 inches, and around 12 - 14 lbs.

What a jol!

This morning at work I measured the length of my work-shoe. (the one in the pic)

It is 13 inches long.

So re-looking at that fish pic, I guess it may be closer to 28 inches  :eek7:

Anyways, this afternoon I made another turn at the pond. Got another nice one. Not as big as yesterday, but still an awesome catch  :biggrin:

I do declare the spawn "over"  8) :imaposer:

You are not being fair( sob sob)
When on the farm, I could also quickly jump in the van and go and chase some fishing time, now my kit is just gathering dust.
Glad for you that your quality of life is so good and thanks for sending a smile to SA!
