For the last couple of weeks there has been virtually no saltwater fly fishing to speak of. High winds and lots of rain has made conditions impossible. Both the Hermanus and Bot River lagoons are still open having breached for the first time in many years very early in winter. The De Mond estuary is in flood and the Breede River is running at a high level and therefore the estuary is full of fresh water.

There have been a few steenbras caught by conventional means at Die Plaat at Struisbaai and I hear that the boats have taken some yellowfin as well as bluefin tuna off Cape Point.
