    Talking Sterkies: 27-31 Jan 2012

    We will be fishing Sterkies from 27-31 Jan.

    Staying at Qwantani.

    Anybody else fishing there during the same period?

    Pop me a PM and we can hook-up for a beer or braai and exchange some fishy tales.

    Unhappy

    Hey Barend,
    Will be up there the same wknd, with a group of 4 friends. Only trouble is that there is the Tourette sight fishing comp the same wknd, so we will be sharing the dam with another 20-30 anglers.....

    I was on Sterks this past weekend, during the first leg of that same comp. I saw two or three other boats the entire weekend, the place is huge.

    How was the fishing?

    -------------------------

    Feedback from Jonathan regarding the Mavungana 13-16 Jan trip:

    "Our Sterkies trip was great little bi of Iffy weather but on the first and last day good light and excellent sightfishing. I have been fishing it for 15 years and I must say I have noticed the fish are becoming pressurised and painfully spooky a consequence of the Vaal being shot and every Tom Dick and Harry heading off there so inevitable I guess.
    Have fun and tight lines
    Best
    Jono"

    Thanx Andrew. I took today off, packing, washing fly-lines [a 1st time ever], getting a few more flies done, and discarding a LOT of stuff that I have gathered up over time...

    Geoff, PM sent, looks like we will be having a very good FlyTalk attendance; hopefully there are nobody at Sterkies that took the brawl thread too serious

    Just spoke to Dave Weaver as well.

    Really looking forward to the extended weekend.
