We have now had over 2 months of big seas and howling south winds up to 70km per hour with little respite so there has been limited chance for fly fishing. On the calmer days shad have been taken at the Vidal and Mapelane bays with a good catch of black tip kingies near Mapelane but that is all.

After being dry for 2 months the Umfolozi is starting to flow again which means that water is entering the lake via the diversion canal. The downside is that it brings with it loads of silt into the estuary. In the old days we had a dredger to keep the mouth open but this was washed out to sea and never replaced.
