June 10

Our local club, the Eastern Province Freshwater Fish Conservancy, will be holding its AGM some time in August when after 30 as chairman I will finally be standing down.

Regarding our local flyfishing waters as you know we have had torrential floods, and all our dams are overflowing including Bulk River which was 2 metres down last month. Regarding Upper van Stadens we are concerned that we may have lost a number of trout which may have migrated downstream with the floods and in fact one of our members caught a good rainbow below the wall after the flood and saw several others
