    Thanks Garnett, appreciate it. His place looks like a great weekend getaway from CT. Mr Smith is rather silent on his access spots

    I'm sure he will share with you in a PM if you ask nicely. Would also like to know where to get access, 35 years ago I caught my first fish there.

    There is a slipway, via Fisherhaven, that I used to launch my skiff from.
    Have not been there for about 18 months, not sure if launch is still open.

    Nymphing, adds depth to your fly fishing.
    Nymphing, is fly fishing in another dimension

    Cool, will go and koekeloer sometime. I see there is access on the Kleinmond side also, via the Rooisand Nature Reserve. Spoke to the Kogelberg office.

    Back in the day we caught a lot of big leeries at Fisherhaven. All off boats. There are deep channels in the lagoon and the leeries were normally found in these. The Hawston locals used to net the lagoon heavily, which ultimately destroyed the fishery.

    Hawston is one of those places that badly wants to be nuked...
    An honest fisherman is a pretty uninteresting person.

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and not only is he hungry but broke for the rest of his life as well.

    Default Gangsterhaven

    Years ago there was even a shootout when gangsta locals were netting the place resulting in a confrontation with the local law enforcement...
    Hawston even has a surf spot but for obvious reasons it's never crowded there...

    Last time I phoned them the access hours were 8am to 5pm. Has this changed? It's a "lekker" walk in the sand to the mouth from the reserve. Caught my first leerie there in '81. (8kg) There used to be big elf as well but the netting activities hurt the population badly.
    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

    Jislaaik, I just saw the pricing. Looks like a long walk along the beach is the way to go. Pity my cousin just moved out. He was renting a property for a year while doing construction work in the area. This was my favourite place when it was still known as Sonesta.
