    Default The yellows are on this year

    I had an interesting conversation with some forum members on Saturday regarding the fishing so far this year. It seems that everyone (except Rory) is catching bucket loads of fish this season.

    The last two season the river was in flood and the fishing was poor to say the least. However, the two years before the floods the fishing also was not as good as this year.

    Has the floods of the last two years been good for the Vaal river? Is it because there was less fishing pressure? Did the river get a good flush - and sommer killed all the sick and old fish.

    Maybe what we need now are some more floods

    Maybe the fish are hungry...

    I mean, can you imagine how fast a caddis can move in 1000tons of water.
    So I skeem, they were so hungry for so long, they are eating whatever comes past them.

    That would also explain why my k@k flies are working for a change.

    Mario, when are you planning to release your experimental AMW-resistant yellows? It was great to finally meet you and talk some k@k
    You are a perishable item. Live accordingly.

    Graham - you should know that it is a top secret experiment and should be treated as such.

    BUt yes - the fish are doing great and soon we will be able to release this super bread into the river.
