    Default Clan Yellows - Die Mond

    Okay so judging from this forum and the greater Interweb, it seems like info on Clan Yellow spots is (understandably) very scarce. I am aware that the tributaries of the Olifants River are the places to go. Has anyone been to Die Mond Campsite? I'm thinking of going there in September. All I would like to know is whether I would likely get a crack at casting to some yellows there, as that would be the main purpose for our trip. No need to reveal any secrets .

    The campsite is really good at Die Mond. Basic, but clean and neat.
    You probably have the best chance to have a crack at Clan Yellows at Die Mond.
    There is plenty info re Die Mond on the forum

    Thanks very much Korrie. You are a wealth of good information and thank you for everything you have done on this forum and for fly fishing in general.

    Respect!

    PS: When I go to Die Mond, I always phone the owners and find out of there is anything they require from town.
    a. They are getting very old, so a quick drive to the shops are not so much fun anymore
    b. The closest shop is about 100km away.

    Sometimes they ask for fresh tomotoes and a bit of fruit or a couple of 2l Cokes or some Oros.
    Imagine you feel like a cold cooldrink on a hot afternoon and you have nothing in the fridge or cupboard?
    You do get tired of Windpomp Lager or Boorgat Sherry.

    Yes I saw that on the other thread. I will definitely do that when I go. Look forward to reporting back on the trip.

    It would be fine. Just don't pretend you are a rally driver. Hopefully the river comes up a bit. I was there over easter and I have never seen it so empty. Also cut the yellows some slack and give some attention to the bass too.

    Thanks Hookjaw. I have never caught a smallmouth bass so I would be stoked to get them too!

    Drive slow and avoid rocks as far as possible.
    I have been there a couple of times, no problem, but I know of someone that went there and had 3 flat wheels on the way in.
    As said, even with a low sedan, you should not have problems.
