Thread: First Elands River Largescale of the Season

  1. #1

    Default First Elands River Largescale of the Season

    I was on the Elands River again Thursady and Friday. Thursday the conditions were perfect. Good flows, good water temperature, nice fine weather and good visibility with some colour in the water. I saw a lot of fish but due to some rustiness I lost some and missed some. They are very spooky and you only get one chance before they disappear.
    Friday conditions were not as good with a low pressure and cooler water. I saw far less fish but got this one on my first cast after a very stealthy approach. I used a 3wt 76 rod and a small black flashback at the tail of a large pool. I spotted some monsters yesterday, far bigger than this one.

    Nice fish. Please confirm which Elands it is ?

    I seem to remember one North of Rustenburg which flowed into a dam, after which it connected with the Crocodile ???????
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.
