Winter conditions continues with very little happening in the Garden Route. I've only had reports from 3 towns.


With the mouth still closed and but a few sand banks available to wade there have been a grunter that fell to the fly and I am sure a lot of casts was cast for this to happen with water being very cold and the regular spots a tad deep to see any tailing


Local lad, Poena Bruwer, has been targeting mullet on fly and had a lot of success.

Targeting mullet with bread flies and what seems to be very, very small poppers he has landed a few this month.

Other then that not a lot has happened around these parts, even conventional fishermen have been struggling to get fish.

Plettenberg Bay

Here a few small garrick fell to the fly around the twin river estate on minnow patterns, but not a lot else happening.
