The toilets and basin etc are in bad shape so again be prepared for the most basic of everything. No money has been spent on the lodges in years and a word of advice, take your own mattress.
    Sounds great

    Igme and I fished thrift the start of April, very windy as usual. We got 8 fish between the 2 of us (millionaires taddy + U.V nymphs ) averaging 2-2.6kg. Trout already starting to show spawning colours and fought hard. Worth the trip.

    Dave, would you mind describing that UV Nymph in a bit more detail? How do you fish it?
    You are a perishable item. Live accordingly.

    HI Graham
    Will post a pic of it, this fly is super, a nymph supposed, but fished quite fast, (on a sinking line ) which nymphs don"t really do in real life. They are slow, but maybe the trout see them as fry. WHO CARES!!!!!!They catch fish.
