According to John Hunter of the Village Angler although one can usually predict good and consistent fishing in late autumn in local still waters the fishing has been very erratic this year with periods when little has been moving although the evening rises have been good. Of the flies which have been successful it has been mainly Black Wooly Buggers, Hamils Killers, patterns will plenty of orange and with good hatches of caddis at times caddis patterns for dry fly fishing

For those who remember Wickhams which closed down some years ago apparently they are re-opening again shortly.

FOSAF held their national AGM at Dullstroom Inn of Friday evening 26 April and then held their Exco meeting at Middelpunt (TFFC) on Saturday morning. On the Saturday afternoon all Exco members caught with chairman Ilan Lax catching and returning at least 7 rainbows despite being broken up twice.


The club still has very good waters and a production unit which produces trout for its dams. Currently the club is battling to keep going but the owner of the property is revamping the buildings and improving the dams.  Anton Henning, the new chairman, who is without a doubt well qualified for the job has our best wishes for success. Anton may be contacted at 082 6136519 or


According to the club chairman Werner Wessels the Sabie is flowing well for this time of year after the good rains of early April and good catches have been recorded. The club also has access to a very attractive stretch of the Blyde above Pilgrims Rest and if anyone wishes to fish this section they should contact Werner.

As in the case of the Sabie River visitors should get day tickets at R150 from Werner Wessels at 083 6771307 or
