Arthur Cary, secretary to the South Coast Fly Anglers Club, reports that both the estuary fishing and rock and surf is offering little to the fly fisher at present. Regarding the estuaries, these are all discoloured with the Umzimkulu coming done in flood after heavy rains inland and also discolouring the sea. The smaller estuaries are dirty after a recent downpour but could clear more quickly.
Very few shad have been caught of late but anglers with conventional tackle have taken plenty of sharks but little in the line of edible fish. However, shad seem to be more plentiful further north of Hibberdene.
