Ahoy LB

Look I dont know if it is the same place, The only Vasfontein i knew of was the one close to pretoria at Izak de Beers place.

He had 2 dams and was building a 3rd when i was last there in 2009.

Both dams were pretty good fishing initially but then they became heavily pressured, a Saturday would see 30 or so anglers on the ponds.

But as I say i have not been there in long but when i was there it was well worth the trip, you could always get a few fish and it was not unusual to latch onto a 2kg+ fish as he stocked quite a few.

Also if you into Kurper i remember there were big schools of kurper in the main dam.

Thanks for reminding me I might like to stop in there and see how it has changed and if the 3rd dam was ever completed.

Good Luck and let us know if you get there first......

Not sure if the venue is suitable for a pontoon or float tube...quite small and you can easily walk around the dams.

Have not been there in years so unfortunately also dont have contact details.

I checked on google maps does not look like the dams exist any more.
