Sterkfontein Update

Golden Sterkies Yellow,

I have just returned from a weekend at Sterkfontein dam. I can honestly say it was the finest weather i have ever experienced at this awesome piece of still water. The fishing on the other hand (Darren) was a bit more challenging . Members in our group did land several fish with the high light being Hilton's 3.6kg Large Mouth Yellow.

This is the view from our unit at Qwantani. If you ever want to know what is happening with the weather at Sterkies , just visit The forecast was 100% spot on.

Jaco fishing for some cruising yellows in Bosckloof. Jaco and Hilton cuaght some nice fish off the banks , while Shane , Tibby and Malcolm were drifting in the bay.
The fish locked on to some # 16 and # 18 black flying ants , later a hatch of redish flying ants also apeared. ( not our rysmiere)
This yellow I hooked on a # 14 PTN - Flash Back nymph. I had a lot of refusals on dries and changed to nymph's , eventualy, tight lines.

We are planing a trip or two , will keep you updated.
