    Wink Honeymoon in the Midlands

    We are going on honeymoon to the KNP as well as the Midlands in November.

    I have been granted permission to pack the #3 for a bit of fishing.

    Can anyone please assist with some possible venues to fish as well as recommendations on flies.

    Regards.

    There is a place near Underberg that might suit both of you nicely. We stayed there for a few days after our wedding:

    http://www.amazianlodge.com/

    It is very much suited for Honeymoon couples and at the same time has the umzimkulu a 1 minute walk away so you could pop down for an hour every now and again while your wife gets a spa treatment. The food is also incredibly good (The Owners used to run a top restaurant in JHB and the wife was head chef there).

    No children are allowed as it is specifically tailored towards couples, hence perfect for honeymoon. I can't remember the rates but i don't remember it being cheap to be honest - Still, when it comes to honeymooning and being allowed to take the fishing rod with, this ticks all the boxes and is quite hard for the missus to say no to.

    Been said countless times, but still the best advice on the forum, forget the fishing and enjoy the honeymoon! spoil your lady rotten, promise you will never regret it!

    Visit Notties, go do the canopy tour at Karkloof, as long as you can do everything together!

    HAHAHA,

    Thanks for the tips.

    We will definately do the Canopy tour at Karkloof. But she agreed that I may take the #3 with, as lons as I book her into a Spa for the time I spend fishing. So we agreed upon that. I will most probably only spend one morning fishing in anyway.
