    Default West coast need to fish desperately

    Hi all. I am new to flytalk. I am currently doing work in langebaan on a long term contract. I dont know the WC that well. Can anyone give me some locations of freshwater fishing that can be done close by. Species of fish is not a issue as I like targeting all on fly. The urge to fish is getting worse and worse.Thanx in advance.

    Meet up with the locals and ask around, some days the fish are upstream at the train bridge the other day down at the Port Owen Marina.
