It is very frustrating as we were looking forward to some fly fishing over the festive season, but all our rivers are in flood, the Orange, the lower Vaal and the Riet. Storage dams are opening their sluice gates to release heavy inflows so it will be some time before conditions return to normal. I guess the next couple of weeks will be spent tying flies to replenish my stock for time when we can take our rods out again. All of the best for Christmas and New Year.


The Orange in the Hopetown area when flowing at a more normal level.
