    Default Highland Lodge report back

    Hey Guys

    Just a quick video report on a recent trip to Highland Lodge.

    7 Anglers went up for about 5 nights.

    Fishing was off and on, we had three cold fronts go through over the period we stay, and it went from crystal clear days, to snow and hail.

    The fish played along and everyone got into some sizeable fish. Fly choices went from leeches, zonkers, chironomids, woolly buggers, soft hackles and nymphs. Lots of big fish, a few over 10lbs, and some stockies in between.

    It was bloody cold, the mercury hovering below zero in the early mornings.

    All in all it was a great trip, really looking forward to heading back!

    None ... but with no water in the rivers, it is starting to look very good at this stage

    I know what you mean ... due to the sad state of the Vaal the last few years ... I have even resorted to fishing for big mouth bess ...

    If I had that kind of trooting near me ... I'd be trooting all day every day.
