    Default Browns vs Rainbows

    To all of you out there I pose the question: Which do you prefer - stalking and catching a few shy browns on a small stream or catching buckets of rainbows in similar streams? Judging by what I see on this forum I presume that most of you are rainbow hunters? (Quantity vs quality?)

    Seriously though, how many brown (fario) addicts are there out there in SA?

    Uhhh… interesting thoughts, they both have their pros and cons.

    Brown are mine, but they have to be on Mario's favorite water...

    One brown on the upper Witte is worth 50 rainbows on the Elandspad anyday in my book!

    Hear-hear Max!!!

    Yes, it will have to be browns. Allegedly the are more difficult to catch - so it must then go to reason that when catching a brown, that you are doing well.

    Would love to fario, as long as you don't mind me including the odd strikindicatorisvulgaris or two, along with a few other bits and pieces of unconventional tackle that is? I believe that Orange reflex spinners also work particularly well up there

    You seem to be somewhat of a mystery-man, but at least we know (?) you you are from the WC somewhere!

    Question, will you make it to the WitEls and back? I heard it is pretty tough going. Also, there is little to no room for Shadow Casting!!

    You Capies talk a lot of *** sometimes! Spinners

    Shadow casting works especially well with cane rods!

    Helicopters work well in SA as well I'm told

    I agree with you Mario, he does look a lot like that Brad character who was responsible for the flyfishing explosion 15 years ago hey? It's the 'pitts', excuse the pun!

    On a serious note Fario, I was planning a trip upto the middle valley in November, but via the overland route. I am dying to get up there again. We can certainly talk.
