|Richtersveld - flyfishing paradise
The Orange in the Richtersveld is truly a flyfishers paradise.This is one of the two largemouth yellows which I estimated to be in the region of 8 kg. Also among the yellows taken was a smallmouth of about 5 kg. My most successful tactics for the largies were basically much the same as you would use to catch trout, casting into deeper holes in fast flowing water. The key, I would say, was definitely the weight and action of the streamers which I tied using clouser eyes.
