    If you fish just one dam for trout it must be Dap Naude. Its a big dam, clear water with wild fish only which breed in the Broedestroom. Fish numbers are fantastic although not that big but fantastic fishing. You can do some proper loch style wetfly fishing there.
    An honest fisherman is a pretty uninteresting person.

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and not only is he hungry but broke for the rest of his life as well.

    contact Jason or Jen Bruin at the local fly shop - great people and they can give you all the info you need. I think they are down for the Nationals so you may only get them next week.

    When I lived in Phalies, I used to love going to Magoebaskloof...awesome waters there...and of course, getting clever at the Hotel or The Iron Crown.

    Definitely check with the local shop/contact before booking/leaving. I stopped over for work about a week ago and booked in at Cheerio, they haven't stocked for months due to a permit issue at the fishery in Lydenburg (Lunsklip??). This is what the guy there told me, true or not I have no idea, but best to check before you leave.

    Apologies, way off topic. Shammie, is it normal for the Letaba to be completely covered with water plants this time of year? I was shocked when I crossed the bridge at Letaba Junction, completely covered, not a drop of water in sight, completely covered in green.

    The bridge near Tzaneen might be the case, but closer to Phalaborwa (Letaba Ranch) the river will be (should be) low and clear this time of year hey...

    The summer rains have not been great at all which is part of the problem
