    great ideas from you guys.

    Welome to the forums Jason.

    There are quite a few members from your area on the forum, and knowing the majority of these members they will always be willing to lend a hand or go fish with you.

    BTW which facets of f/f blows your hair back ?
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Thanks Herman.

    Well it is hard to say as I am not as experienced as a lot of the guys here. All I know is that I love the hunt. Nothing better than putting my mind against one of those sneaky trout.
    And coming out on top and the feeling when you land her. I guess I do it for no other reason but for the shear enjoyment of it.

    instead of starting a new thread, i thought i will add here.
    new to the forum, very informative, very impressed!
    havent flyfished in a few years, been concentrating on rock and surf, but getting tired of the crowds. time to take up the long rod again. plan to join NFFC in the next week or so. did some research (some on this site) and it seems the best way to go to gain access to some decent water that can be visited on day trips from durban. unless someone knows otherwise
    please advise

    Hey Paul, Welcome to the forum. I am also pretty new on here but the guys are really helpful and are very willing to share info and help where they can. I have also been toying with joining the NFFC. For me its a toss up between them and the UHTFC. Most of these waters are located around Underberg though so probably 2-3hrs away from Durbs which is a bit far for a day trip. I go up to Drak Gardens at least twice a year so it sort of make sense for me. Where are you based? I have also just joined Durban Fly Tyers club. Also a great bunch of guys. Check out their website for info. They do a few trips a year to salt and freshwater.

    Welcome Paul. Always great to see more Kzn boys around. I've been involved in all 3 clubs JulzD mentions so feel free to contact me for information on the clubs or just for a fish.

    Cheers,

    thanks guys. i also looked at UHTFC, but it was just the distance that bothered a bit. maybe at a later stage.
