    I say that what ever you do just enjoy it.

    Not to sure on smacking the fish on the head though is that not frowned upon ?

    I normally turn it on its back and that sometimes work but not always.

    This brings me to my next question. because this will be my first time that I will be able to fish the evening rise. I would like to try my hand in a bit of dry fly. I am not too sure what I should use for this time of year though.
    You are probably gathering that I have been away from the water a lot because of work and I want to make the most of it if I can.

    I am thinking of these DDD, Peterburgh, Parachute adams, Klinkhammer.
    But I have no idea of what sizes to use and if the water clarity will affect it.

    Please advise on this.

    Unhappy

    where could I buy them ? As I will not have time to tie them myself and in what sizes ?

    How would I catch with them ? Slower running water dead drift ? would i use only sight fishing or is it a case of drift and pray ?

    Thanks for your help on this so far

    The F&K also produced as well on my trips on the VAAL and Orange.

    I have to admit I get on the Vaal and Orange 2 or 3 times a year.
    There should be some Vaalies, that fish it on a more regular basis, that might have patterns that produce better?
