    Eish, I'll try my best. If you enter Stellenbosch from the N1 side, turn left at the first major intersection as you enter Stellenbosch. (the intersection that has Eikestad Motors on the one corner). After turning left, turn right at the next set of robots. This is the road that takes you to Helshoogte. At the last set of robots before climbing up the hill to Helshoogte, turn right and then look out for a circle. Exit the circle at the 9pm exit. This road will take you all the way up to Jonkershoek. After a few km, look out for the Jonkershoek flyfishing board on your left. To your right you will see the entrance to Assegaaibos. You will have arrived. Hope this helps.

    Your shortcut sounds complicated!

    Driving from the N1 into Stellenbosch via the R307, which becomes Bird Str. At the 5th set of traffic lights, turn left onto Merriman, continue straight, at circle exit 12:00 (straight). Merriman becomes Martinson, which becomes Jonkershoek. Conitnue on this roiad until you find the fishery on your left.

    Stupid question here from a free stater . Why don't they just clear a decent river, like berg or bree river in it stretches where carp, sm bass, blue gill and tench occur with that poison(reko-something), and introduce the three species plus the endangered minnows back into it? Really don't see problem with the trout higher upstream, they dont $^% the river system by eating anything that moves or turning in mud like a pig.

    Flyfishing for yellows...the most fun a man can have, with his clothes on, while standing up, holding a bar of gold in your hands.

    Ai Rols, I am so sorry to hear that. My sincerest sympathy mate.

    We had a very good first meeting last night with an extremely good turn out. It was informal and relaxed with everyone chipping in their 2c here and there, a great bunch of guys, I must say. Dean gave us a brief outline as to the nature of the job that has to be done and suggested that we get together soon as a group at a yellowfish venue for a weekend, where he will give us a powerpoint presentation about the extent of the problem and then we will have a practical first hand encounter with yellows in the wild at the same time. One of the ideas will be to stock virgin stillwaters in the Porterville area with Clanwilliam Yellows. Not only will they breed and thrive in these waters but they will provide sport for future generations of fly fishermen to enjoy. We have the prince of yellows here in the Cape, and it is high time that we as members of the public give them the respect and protection that they deserve. Personally, this is a very exciting project to be involved in, because it is such a noble and deserving cause. I would encourage more of you to join the group.

    Rols, I cant remember if you have sent me your details yet, but if not, please do and we will include you on the global email list which Darryl Lampert has kindly offered to set up for us. This way, we will all be in the loop all the time. My email is chris@pprint.co.za

    Cool Geelvis royalty !

    Awesome! It fills my gut with a smile to hear that people (even you slaapenaars) are giving freely and unselfishly of your precious time to help with conservation of our beautiful bars of gold. If individuals all over the country follow suit, long may our rivers, streams and stillwaters be filled with golden fly taking happiness.

    Now to start the flame war ...

    You guys might have the prince, but let all and sundry bow down before the king ... The LargeMouth !
