Thread: Another newbie to the site

  1. #1

    Default Another newbie to the site

    Hi All,
    I have been flyfishing for several years although I have not touched a rod for the past 2 years! I currently stay in Vienna, Austria and am hoping to be back in the fairest Cape in the next couple of months.
    I have fished loads in the "Transvaal" and still own a house in Watervall-Boven. (make me an offer...lol)
    I am looking forward to comming home to Cape Town and having the opportunity to fish those tiny streams as well as trying my hand on the Berg River (Veldrift) where my mom now stays and having a go at some Durbanville Carp. Also I would love to have a go at some of those Rays I have seen in Saldanha!!!
    Anycase I am drooling here! So will monitor and learn for my return!
    Kind regards,
    Karel

    Welcome Karel

    I was in your lovely Vienna just a couple of days ago! Amazing city and so beautiful! Although only half as beautiful as CT
    I'll stay as long as i can fish. . .

    Whenever the "club" for geniuses - MENSA - was mentioned, I always wondered if their was an opposite equivalent society for imbeciles. Now I know, it's called ANCYL.
