Yellows in the Jordan River.
We have two types of yellowfish here smallscale (Damascus barbel ) and largescale.
Both living mostly in Jordan river. ( Israel )
Largescales are very common here up to around 2-3kg, caught well on lures (not many flyfisherman here).
Smallscale is not taking lures at all, but taking flies quite well.
I had a luck on a weekend and caught a good size one. Next time I'll try and send you a largescale on a fly (untill my last visit to South Africa I was fishing for them on a lure).
