    Hi Guys

    I would ardently recommend this clinic to anyone who has been struggling to consistently hook and land fish.
    The invaluable tips and tricks Gary taught me has made a world of a difference to my experience on the Vaal.

    To quantify things a bit, consider the fact that EVERY participant in the clinic caught more fish in the allotted time than they have before.
    There were times when more than half of us were on at the same time.
    Personally I caught more fish during those few hours than I did in all my Vaal trips combined, at 1 point I even got tired of catching fish!!!

    Our instructor was patient, humble and ever willing and eager to answer our questions and show us the do's 'n don'ts.

    I went to try out my newly learned skills the very next day as I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to achieve the same success on my own but I ended up doing even better than I did the day before.

    An amazing experience, best fishing related money I've spent in a very long time.

    Gary, who are these gentlemen speaking about here?

    I can second that, any time spent with Gary on the water is a great learning curve.

    We definitely need to, maybe I should attend your clinic, I what little I knew of Nymphing has long been lost.

    I can second Gary's "new" patience thing A coupe of years ago it took 2 Red Bulls to take the edge off, but man, these days it takes half of one to get him going

    Jokes aside, I agree that this course/clinic is something everyone that fishes the Vaal should do.
