Hello all!

My name is George, live in CT(since July 2013, previously from Bloem).
Grew up in KZN (Newcastle). There i got hooked on chasing bass first with "normal gear(spinning)" and now i chase them exclusively on fly Big Grin

Itching to go hunting for buckets as soon as possible Smile
Glad to be part of the community Smile

Can anyone recommend a good spot for me to start.
I don`t own any watercraft thus bank fishing and wading should be possible. Can anyone give me a lead or is anyone keen on joining me for a trip on Sunday to Eikendal?

Regards
George :eusa_dance:

Welcome to the site and the Western Cape from another Newcasteliet. My boet Willie (Wilbul) on this site is still in Newcastle!

Quite a few flythrowers on the site so I am sure you will get some offers.

Hi Mr GT,
Nice to have a fellow fisherman from Northern Natal here, I'm from Dundee originally. I did a spot of fly fishing with friends on a farm in the Balele Mountains 96-99, but I'm back to the spinning for bass, also new to the Cape, in fact doing my first bit of bass fishing tomorrow in the Elgin Valley....

Cheers,

Howzit George! Lekker having you here. I still trying to flog my house in Centurion and settle down in our own place this side, proving to be tricky.

We should go catch a fooshy some time.

Hey guys,

That sounds like a plan for a NN and NDE reunion.....I'll let the guys that have been in CT longer than me decide where and when.
Just returned from two days in the Elgin Valley....just fished two small dams on the property we were staying at, got three....two smallies and the biggest one being around 800-900 g.
But was nice seeing that part of the world, took a drive to Mofam but was closed due to a wedding, took a quick walk around and look see. Would like to try there if an opportunity presents itself. But being a bank boy the scope looks limited there.
