    One of those very weird days on the river.....from many long casts to broken fly-lines to popped tippets to trophy fish!!!!! I managed to land 3 Largies a 3lber,4lber & a 14lber what a fight the 14lber put up. Luckily I had a spare line with me to continue fishing.....eish! Some serious weather in Parys now!

    To all those largie hunters, whats the average size fish that can be expected? Seems like it can be anything between 1kg to a trophy? And minimum size tackle to be recommended?
