    Good chirp Herman

    Yes I agree, now that i have re-surfaced so to speak I plan on hitting the water like a screen door in a tornado!!!! I'm a little far away with my closest access to the Vaal at Potch, but if you guys are willing we can meet up there say twice a month?

    *** willing I will be meeting up with OMR next weekend, but we won't be getting into the water at Footloose, I just hope I can keep him away from the pub long enough to (re-)teach me how to cast
    Fishing is just my thing. I don't know what it is but it seems that i just can't get enough of it.

    Default Wader??

    Hi guys

    Just want to find out if it will be safe for my girlfriend to wade in the vaal without waders? Just a bit scared about infection, with the female anatomy? Do you think it will be a problem or should she rather use waders?

    Thanks guys!

    ......hahahaha, I'm sorry that is just really funny! On a serious note; it should be ok for her to wade Pat Garrit style (without waders). Their....hahaha thingy is exposed a little more than ours but the water should be ok for them. Like us they will still have to have a good soak when they get home.......hahaha....I'm really trying to be serious. You made my day!

    Let her wet wade and then INSIST on doing a thorough inspection afterwards

    ANYTHING for her health and wellbeing...

    Enjoy!

    Frank, I'm going to say this once more, and then I'll let it be ... the fact that a thread like this exists is more than enough for you to be careful.

    Hehehehehe, that's why there's Sun Gloves.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.
