    Talking Small stream yellowfish

    Have you had the privelidge to fish for Small Mouth Yellows in a small stream invironment?

    I was dumb struck. Casting a RAB to a surface feeding Yellow in 10 inches of clear water, almost unbelievable.

    I caught 10 of wich one was 3KG and one 2KG the rest was +- 800gr

    Stream X!!!!!!! You guessed it.

    If you guys are keen to explore this venue in the Western Cape let me know. We are gonna make a trip there again.

    Overnight in wonderfull comfort by the river and fish the Saterday and Sunday morning.

    2 hours drive from Cape Town.

    Will post PIC soon

    Think it's meant to mean that you should not post the pic

    hahahaha!

    Ja Buz- I know your stream X well, including Y and Z. Just dont think they could ever handle a Sandvlei massacre quite so well. They are small and fragile and need to be cherished and guarded for that very reason. People can diss me all they like for saying that but I know plenty people who will agree with the fact that certain streams are so special because they are not popularly known.

    Kev i for one completely agree with you on this point. Like you have said its not about being selfish its just that certain streams are very delacite (sp) and would never be able to handle a lot of fishing pressure!

    If you are lucky enough to go out and find one good for you, but if you want it to remain prestine then rather keep it under the radar

    Rather don't post that pic please! As it was previously said in threads of similar nature, please do not discuss these fragile streams on a public forum, rather keep it to yourself.

    Cheers
