    I know of 15 for a day , thats probably the highest, in the last say two or three years, but it is posible that the "guru's" in this area have done more, but that would be top secret cia information that no one would know about............... although Chris or Klaas might know of double figures for a days fishing as well................ You are asking about the last couple of years hey? because i have also heard of huge numbers coming out back in the day.

    Well done.

    My best days were 3 and 2, normally it's 1 or a blank

    Must say on the best day, given the 3 LM, we also took barbel & carp on fly, so we had a good species count Was also my 2nd largest LM landed.

    I know of two guys getting around 30 largies in a single day between them.
    (It may be more than that, cannot recall)
    They also mentioned they could have caught more, but got tired of the smaller fish (less than 3kg each) so they moved to other spots to search for bigger fish.

    PS: This was below the Barrage, not past Christiana way.

    Wow that is impressive, especially from the middle vaal region (I presume).

    @Andre S ja, I would not mind being a mayfly against a rock where the big guns are fishing!

    The one on my Avitar was caught in June the 22nd 2013 at Lilydale.
    Estimated 3.5 to 4KG.

    That is my PB and that was my only one for the day.
    John Gavin also caught 1 if I'm correct.
