    But if ever up here, contact me, i got good stretch of water here, and no one else fishing it. Biggest smallmouth i caught is a brute of nearly 13lb(my nick). For smallmouths you'll look far to get this type of fishing.
    Thanks Barbus, I will certainly take you up on that sometime

The upper reaches are still fresh though, and this is where they are, completely unspoilt and untouched and remote. It was one of my best discoveries ever!

    Just a word of caution, keep that waters to yourself and only take people with you that you can trust. Many will suprise you by stabbing you in the back, and be on the look out for those weekend warriors. It's just about getting there and getting a fish, no matter the price or what happens to the enviroment. Just glad to hear they are still thriving up there. Do you have horst filters colt book on yellows? Good section on w/cape fish. Try keith, and email him, he's adress is on site (yellowsonfly.com). And I'll contact you, don't you worry if i'm in your neck of the woods.

    No, but thanks for the tip, I will look out for it. I am getting keener by the minute. Thanks for all the advice. Anyway, I need to go and scratch around for my goggles and stuff now for my big day tomorrow. Thanks again, and take care

It is about time i start fishing more for some of the ones that i have discovered in my further afield prospecting trips I think. I know of quite a few populations within a 300km radius from Cape Town. They cant all be Clanwilliams either. I can kick myself for being so damn nieve...no excuse for it, but they will still be there. I dont need much of an excuse to head out and rediscover. Who's keen to join me?

    Anytime you want Chris, just say the word.

    Are you serious Kevin? What about your lunker Clanwilliam? Eish Boet! As Dean rightly said, you are one of a literally a handful of guys to have caught a fish like the one you got,.... in the last 20 years! From a scarcity point of view, I would agree, the Witvis has to be number one, but the Clanwilliam is a close second. The Clanwilliam you caught was a trophy though, don't ever lose sight of that, no matter how many other awesome species you get to catch in the future. That single fish was a major accomplishment and one that I hope will remain tops on your list for a long time to come.
