    Went to Strydoms on Sunday and a tough day on the water.
    Water was reasonably clear but I think that's because it was as skinny as a WC stream at 10cms and spent most of the day cleaning flies of rock snot.
    Water felt cold and I think the wind the last few days also played it's part.
    Let's hope we get some propper rain soon.

    Went to a venue between Parys and Potch on Sunday.
    Water temp 14, air temp 7.
    I lasted an hour from 7 to 8 before I couldn't feel my fingers or toes.
    Managed 3 muddies, largest around 1.5 kg.
    My season has been opened and new rod and reel christened.
