    Default Venues in gauteng?

    Hey guys

    Where is a good place to go fish for the day in gauteng?

    I just bought a new rod and reel and want to test it out
    i cant wait till end of next month when i go to Dullstroom
    to test it.

    There are a few trout venues such as Brookwood, Footloose and Gnu Valley or trout hunters BUT I wouldn't recommend going there in the highveld summer and expecting to catch anything, just way too hot and any fish still living will be too stressed to take flies , good to go and practice your casting though. Good luck with the fly fishing and I hope it brings you many years of pleasure and satisfaction.

    Yellowfish Paradise is probably the closest option for you http://www.yellowfishparadise.co.za/

    Otherwise spend some time reading the "Vaal river update" ( http://www.flytalk.co.za/forum/showt...l-River-Update ) thread on this forum to get to know of some other venues, or just search for "Vaal venue" using the search function.
