    Default Rivendell

    Hi Guys

    I hear that Rivendell Trout Farm on the Spekbook River is open again.
    Just wondering if anybody has been there since it has opened up.
    Looking at going as it used to be one of my favorite places to go

    Their website is up and running, but that is as much as I know.
    My regular fishing partner just spent a week fishing at Highlands Run and if I am not mistaken that is on the Spekboom as well, and he had a great time and caught a fair few fish.

    I saw recently, can't recall where, that Rivendell is under new ownership. Have to say I have very fond memories of this stretch of river, think it was at the time owned by Gerhard Laubscher. Also Highland Run and the private water above it (Tiffendell comes to mind, but not the name , can not remember.). It is just a great part of our country, the landscape, the water etc. etc. I hope it will be restored and even be better than years back, I will surely visit again if that is the case. Is Doug Starling still around in that area, he also had cottages at the Lydenburg town dam and the river below, think it was Otter's Haunt.

    I will see if I can find out from Ross about ownership etc. but not sure he would know anyway. The website does not state anything around the ownership or change thereof, so maybe the best way is for you to go visit and find out and then update the rest of us :-) I am looking for a venue for my next trip.

    Rivendell is under new ownership.

    They are busy revamping the Bag End Cottage.
    Hobbitin has been revamped.

    Just wondering what the fishing is like as his prices is quite steep, before I bite the bullet and pay R12000 for a weekend.
