    Default Barbel on Fly - Vaalkop dam

    Hi there, we went to Vaalkop dam for our artlure league a while back. The afternoon after our weigh in, we saw a barbel run in a small inlet to the dam. All you could see were barbel mouths out of the water. We decided to throw a fly at them and have some fun. I rigged up my 8/9wt Xplorer and had a big Crazy Charlie fly on. A couple of casts later I was on. It gave a good fight and I landed him. Did not weigh him though.

    That's a nice barbel. It must have been a challenge getting it on the side.
