    Bass Lake, Henley on Klip,
    Nigel Dam, Nigel
    Murray Park, Springs
    Rynfield Dam, Benoni
    Homestead Dam, Benoni
    St Stithians Dam, Sandton ( Speak to OMR aka Chris Williams for permission )
    Kloofzicht Lodge, Muldersdrift

    I'm sure there are many others, e.g. Potch Dam, Potch etc.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    I thought I would quickly sneak in and do some experimenting with some leaders I've modified rather than fishing as such, but obviously your Spy-In-The-Sky caught me out!! For real fishing I reckon another week at least before some stability and clarity comes back to make real fishing worth-while

    A bit further but worth a try is Bronkhorstpruit dam

    Also in the Bronkhorstpruit area is Bass-o-mania (www.bassomania.co.za) - you need to make an appointment here.

    Add Vasfontein and Roodeplaat in Pretoria to your list of venues. A little further afield you have witbank dam, middelburg dam and rust de winter.

    The vaal above the barrage also contains bass so dont be afraid to give that a go - they host enough tournaments there
    Check your knots!

    Hey Monster

    I PM'd OMR about the very same thing.

    I stay close to Saints. If you want, we can tie up with OMR and go together. Currently the dam is like coffee, so we might have to wait.

    Cheers
