    Geepers, I haven't updated this thread in a while, well, I haven't been on here in a while.

    The Orange is in awesome shape at the moment, viz is about 2 meters and the temp perfect. We had Pascal Cognard and co there on Monday and managed to get them on very productive water. They got plenty of SM on dry and soem largies.

    Here's some pics of the action:

    I have to thank Chris, Klaas and Francois for hosting us.
    It was a SUPERB experience.
    Pascal and Said, both loved the experience.
    Their only concern was that sight fishing to an individual fish was very very difficult, because there are so many.
    But they agreed that the fishing was testing.
    With so many fish, you would expect the fishing to be easy, very selective feeding, with 7 or 8x tippet.
    Pascal and Said, both had a LM within 2 hours of fishing, which was amazing, considering that many guys fish for a very very long time without getting one. KUDOS to the guides for that.
    I hope Chris post more photos, as the experience was very special.
    Many thanks again.
