    Default Newbie to the site

    Hi guys. Name is Paul and am from Alberton in JHB.

    I registered a long time ago but I never got to catch anything on fly, so I concentrated on bass fishing (with bass rods).

    In November last year, another Porra buddy of mine who fishes from a kayak, mentioned how he fly fishes on the Vaal. I said it would be cool to give it a bash. Then another buddy (I think he may be on this forum, probably as "Texan") mentioned he was keen to go, so I decided to tag along.

    That was that!! I think we went to the Vaal like 8 times in December, and the first time i picked up a bass rod was in April this year.

    Got yellows, muddies and trout under the belt now.

    Learning from scratch it seems, and will keep learning.

    Chat soon!
