Thread: 6 Pounder on a 2WT Dorber

    Default 6 Pounder on a 2WT Dorber

    Hi guys

    I thought you okes might like this. I went out with Daryl yesterday to some place in the mountains somewhere in North West Province.

    We started fishing the stream with 2 Weights and later moved up to a dam.
    Lost 2 fish and not long I hooked into this beauty.



    This fish was caught on Daryl's custombuilt 2wt Dorber built by Mario(Smallstreams.co.za) complete with the trademark off centre tip top. Good fish on a good rod... Well done Mario!

    Please note the rod in the background.

    Behold the fisherman. he riseth early in the morning and disturbeth the whole household. mighty are his preperations. he goes forth full of hope and when the day is ended, he returneth smelling of strong drink and the truth is not with him. originator unknown.

    ROLS, if you caught that one, after all the pics and showing your mates it would have looked like a ''bokkom''by now.

    Thanks ET! Those Dorbers are great rods for the price you pay. I still need to get myself one of those 2-weight and convert to a 4-piece! The action of those blanks are super, I love em!!!!
