    Default Monster Carp caught on 5 weight in Vaal river!

    Kevin hooked and landed this 12kg carp on fly using a 5 weight fly rod! His PB after a 40 min fight! It was at Vaal hackle on Friday and Kev used a self-tied black nymph. You can ask questions or for advice on their YouTube channel or instagram (Uncharted fly-fishing) and ask for tips or even to fish with them in future, they are great guys!

    The Vaal seems to be very clear at the moment

    Korrie you right
    This currently makes for very nice sight fishing, specially carp as they are easily seen.
    It also makes it difficult as fish is much more skittish.

    Just one more cast.......... make it count ...........
