As we are in the middle of winter one would not expect any fish to be coming out, but a few fly fishers proved that theory wrong.

Fishing might be slow, but the fish are there and planning your trip and casting to areas where the fish are most likely to be, and feed will result in success.

Deon Stevens and Kyle ovens ventured to Natures Valley and was rewarded with a couple of nice winter Garrick. around 60 cm on clousers and squid patterns.

In Klein Brak Robin Fick managed a few Grunter on crab patterns that he tied a week earlier when conditions were not great for fishing.

At Goukamma a bunch of Juvenile Garrick fell to the fly. The mouth opens and closes every other week.

Sedgefield also produced a few winter Garrick at the train Bridge and the Island.

A few mullet were caught in Knysna Lagoon on bread fly, using the chumming technique.

It is quite a rush when the mullet starts to go into a feeding frenzy and you make a cast into the mix, waiting for that pull on the line.
