With the holidays coming up, many an angler has by now already planned a fishing trip to a favourite destination to spend quality time with loved ones. To complement such a trip, we inter alia devote an article this month to some of our favourite fly selections, running through the various types of set-ups that you may need as each part of a river presents different scenarios. Talking about memorable trips … A few months ago Marc Towers contacted us all the way from Ghana and wanted to know if it was possible to fish Vanderkloof Dam in South Africa. We subsequently offered to guide him for a few days of fishing. Our target would mainly be a 5 kg+ largemouth yellowfish on artificial lures, and if time allowed it, we would also look for carp, catfish and smallmouth yellowfish on lure. Marc has fished all over the world and has been fortunate enough to land several monster fish, including famous species such as golden dorado, arapaima, alligator gar, goonch catfish, sturgeon and golden mahseer. If all went well we could add a trophy largemouth yellowfish and some other species to his tally …
