    As an aside, but on a similar topic. When we built Koeberg the construction workers found a complete woolly mammoth skeleton under the dunes adjacent to the beach.

    Big creatures roamed our coastline in the past.

    The largest sharktooth ever found was also picked up there. I had it on my desk and traced the outline before it was shipped off to New York museum. 14 cm long, 12 cm wide and 3cm thick. Big beastie (a Great White tooth is typically 5cm long).

    Hijack off.

    Hi Jack. I wonder if Fario also came out of those dunes? He's something of a woolly mammoth from what I hear. Or was it actually something about a mammoth woolly? I forget

    Sounds to me like this story started off with someone finding a wooly bugger in the dune. By the time his mates mates told the story it was a wooly mammoth.

    Anyone have some recent feedback on the Breede? I am heading to the Witsand side this weekend and wondering if anyone has caught anything lately and what the conditions are like?
    THE AFRICAN FLY ANGLER

    If you're fly fishing as though you are 'in a contest', and the only objective is to 'catch fish' - you are missing the point .... and that is disappointing

    "Fly fishing is for those who hold that the fun in the race of life is in the running, not just the winning, that existence is its own justification, that a day spent in a stream or a pond with a goal in mind is a joy even if the goal is not achieved."

    Hi

    Very slow this last weekend, no known leeries to bait or fly.
    Grunters not tailing, everything quiet.
    It should be a lot better this weekend as the water will clear, see pics on thread about grunter.
    Got a pig-nose and that was all.
    Regards
    Craig
