Hi All

Is there any fly fishers out there that know of decent small stream fishing (or any other type) that requires a 4x4 to get there, I'm thinking it is time to start combing the two and start enjoying the drive to the waters, instead of just rushing to the waters.

Let me know and maybe we can arrange an outing/excursion.

Love fly fishing, have not done it for a while. Down to the Vaals side is some great spots with a bit of 4x4ing, just past yellow fish paradise.
Best at the moment for me is tiger in Bots, some great trails and excellent tigers to be caught with fly :thumbup:

Now you are making me the THUNDERIN :slap: :frustrated:

That one regarding the Bots and some stripped dogs is on my bucket list.

Where past Yellowfish would this be? and is it private waters? what are the details? or better yet when are we going fishing as yellow season has not that long to go!!

Let me know.

Neil I'll have to have a serious talk with you on Sunday, I am toying with going to the Delta in December even if it is not the best time to fish, but like they say, a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work. :lol:
