    I take it you're only going Chez then. Cause those things are a lttle over kill.

    My controls are normaly beaded, with 10-12 turns of .25-.30 lead. I then add split, if I need more weight, but I control dearth with the indicator. I mostly NZ nymph... so.

    Where is your trip taking you??

    ha ha ha! Ja, those ones are most probably a little over kill! I just want to ensure that my flies are hitting the bottom even if there is a flash flood! My control flies vary from 1 full wrap of lead to three full wraps. The heavier wrapped ones are tied without beads, with some of the more sparsely tied ones having tungsten beads.

    I have never czech nymphed before, so I'll probably start with upstream nymphing and then give czech nymphing a go once I've caught a couple fish. At the same time, I've been tying plenty flies in 12's-16's- brassies, caddis imitations etc etc etc.

    We are going to the Richtersveld for a week- So hopefully the Orange River yellows will play ball!

    Getting a little stressed Mike, those heavily weighted nymphs might not be overkill in the end- the water is flowing out of the Gariep like never before (1000 cumecs or something)... Eish, just our luck...

    Take the anvil along just in case Tight lines guys,
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.
