Records are kept of fish caught, released and kept to aid restocking programmes. Consequentially, what works in one water does not necessarily apply to others. Nor does, what worked yesterday, automatically follow the same pattern for the next day. It does require a bit of trial and error, which as flyfishers gives us the opportunity to finger select through the plethora of flies that sit in our box. I do however try to limit my fly selections to a few; to what normally works for me on most waters at different times of the day.

At special times of the day, the DDD rules. Millstream was a little different though. One evening, the water was like boiling soup with trout rising all over the place but none being interested in my particular offering. I went across to a fellow fly fisher for a chat and he withdrew a self-made variation of a DDD from his box but carelessly dropped it.

Both, being the other side of 60, we battled to find the miscreant on the muddy ground and I promptly did the right thing by offering my box, as replacement fly to my new friend. That tended to cement the friendship and we met several times at waters around the estate where we shared useful fishing titbits to one another. I gained a lot of fishing knowledge from my buddy who has been visiting Millstream for more than 20 years.

One pearler, was to leave the waters when a certain insect was attempting to enter every orifice of your body as the trout go off the bite. I persisted a few times to fish through the swarm of prying insects but soon found the advice proved correct. I also learned from a young teenage boy who spoke of the papa roach.

In windy conditions when the trout feel safe to come out and play, the papa skimmed fast over the water is a killer. Thank you mate for sharing that one with the old man. For the rest, the fish caught and released were small, most under a pound although a few possibly over that mark.

I did not take any trout out of the water, preferring to release from the net, as the water temperature was high. Happily, none were killed at my hands. There was also no shortage of fish and if I had a bad fishing day, it was because of me, and not the fishing! The experiential at Millstream is akin to steak and chips offered by one of the better family restaurants. There is abundant trout and the restaurant goers seemed nice. The fishing industry needs Millstream as much as the patrons need a safe place to rest, eat and follow their passion.

There is a good spread of trout activities to satisfy both the novice and the pro. Sure, fishing with volume can be a challenge but can also be an opportunity to learn of new dishes, from someone nearby. This smorgasbord of offerings should satisfy every flyfishing whim with even very small streams open to test the flyfisher when water levels do rise. And then, there are the side dishes for those who do not wish to partake in the sport of Kings, but do enjoy getting out with family and friends and just experiencing good times together.

All of this is done within rule; and with due care for one another. It is a bit like a laager of fun and peace in a safe environment. My family felt this was the greatest plus factor about Millstream. Will we have our say? Will flyfishing, farming and stocking of waters be affected?

Will, I return? Do fish swim? Fragrant mountain herbs and grasses deck the valleys with colourful splashes of wildflowers between, the birdsong in the summer fynbos is as enticing as the movements of a bushbuck quenching its thirst beside an ancient fern in a deep forest stream. Each stream has its own fingerprint and character and the trout that live there are unique and individually painted by natures brush. The tackle we use on small streams is beautifully crafted, pleasing to the eye and feels good in our hands. Completing the painting is the very artful act of deception, presenting our feathered creations as though we are weaving a spell with our wand.

The emphasis in modern fly fishing has become more about the specialised tackle,. Stalking trout in remote small streams is the ultimate for me. It satisfies all the things I have ever desired from fly-fishing. Make no mistake, I have had loads of fun fishing for other species over the years, but 90 percent of 25 years has been dedicated to stalking trout on the small trout streams in the mountains and forests of the southern and western cape.

I have always been passionate about trout and special secluded waters, the idea of flogging full length lines all day in the salt or popping bass bugs in the neighbourhood pond just lost its appeal to me in my student years already. Every aspect of it exudes art to some extent. The www. Growing up back then, we never had access to the CPS waters or the clubs fantastic library and resources that Capetonian trout fisherman had.

We had to dig for information on how to do things and then put them to the test on the stream. It must be terribly confusing for a 13 year old to start fly-fishing today, where does he or she even start, just choosing a rod must be an awful decision making process with all the convenient choices and flashy brands with equally bling price tags advertised on every second social media page. We learnt stream craft www. They were our tutors in trout and their guidance laid the foundation for us to build on.

I am so grateful that we learnt that way though, the struggle was real and we experienced so many facets of trout fishing that are almost non-existent today. We also learnt to tie flies on our own and how to build the perfect stream fishing leaders. Many a fly rod and reel were modified and we www. One of my favourite reels for small streams was a modified Shakespeare reel.

In those days they only cost about R50 and they were duly brought back to the workshop to be modified and machined by grinder and file to create a small diameter lightweight stream reel. Things progress as you get older and over the years being on stream becomes second nature, a calling to be there more than a desire or need.

Techniques and tactics became refined and almost minimalist, 20 years ago I chucked my fly vest out and settled on a more It has become all about the stealthy stalk and ultimately the sweet deception realised at the take. There are a handful of very special streams where I like to dwell and fish.

No one really needs a third of the paraphernalia that inhabit some anglers fly vests. Times on stream are precious so being bogged down by heavy fly vests and unnecessary stuff is just unpleasant in my experience. My kit now for any day on a stream includes 3 tippet spools, my fly box, Mucilin, floatant and some indicator material and a spare furled leader which all fits into a compact leather trout bag; my rod and reel, and of course, my leather hat.

My fly box reflects that minimalist approach and I have a handful of trusted patterns that over time have proven their worth packed into one small hand-sized fly box. I love fishing fly patterns which in my mind are taken by the trout as the real thing. In this article I am going to spend time focussing on simple changes you can make to your fishing on a river that will certainly improve your catch rates. A question that I am often asked when arriving at a river that we are about to fish is, what flies should we put on? Ten years ago I would have grabbed my box and started running through various options.

Today I am far less inclined to look at flies but rather the water and conditions we will be fishing in. Having said that, let's unpack this idea. The first thing to consider when arriving at the venue you are about to fish is weather conditions. Is it extremely hot or overcast? What is the wind doing? What is the pressure up to? All these factors will contribute to the feeding habits of different species of fish.

If the weather is very warm for a period of several days the fish will start looking for deeper pockets and pools where they are able to hide in the cooler water. They will most certainly feed in the early morning and late afternoon when temperatures are lower and their energy levels are higher. This is a common rule understood by most competent fisherman, however how does this change if you were ishing the same river for yellowfish?

Interestingly enough, the way that these fish feed in the heat is completely different to trout. Yellowfish tend to feed off the bottom with their heads aimed towards the gravel and rocks. When the weather is cooler they tend to stick to this method of feeding, but when the weather is hot and the sun is at its highest this species tends to look upwards and feeding starts to take place slightly higher in the water column. Often an angler on the Vaal will have a lot of success in the first few hours of the morning by fishing heavy nymph patterns bumping along the bottom.

As the heat of the day sets in they tend to catch far less - sadly this is often blamed on the heat. In my personal experience yellowfish tend to feed more in the heat, a lot more! The trick here is to lift your rod tip and ensure that your flies are not right on the bottom of the river but rather cm from it. This little trick will improve your midday catch rates substantially when fishing for yellowfish. As an added bonus these fish tend to hit the. Alrighty then. Now that you understand the conditions and have an idea of where the fish will be feedings, lets classify our river.

Whether fishing in a competition session or just out on the water with mates I always classify my water into three categories, A,B and C water. As I walk my beat I break my water sections up into these categories. This process continues until I catch fish or run out of water. By doing this I am also able to manage my time on the water, spending as much time as possible in my fishy hotspots. Also important is balancing your time in a hole, most fisherman will sit in one spot and completely destroy it before they leave.

A good trick is to catch a handful of fish and then move to a different spot allowing the hole to rest, the fish will very quickly move back into this space, allowing you to get good numbers out of this spot for a longer period of time. A great example of river classification combined with time management came in the second session of the Commonwealth Fly fishing Championships held in Ireland.

Oh no, there's been an error

I was given nearly 1km of river as my beat - very daunting. When walking the river I identified 5 pieces of A category water and a number of B water. My initial plan was to spend even amounts of time on each piece of water but I quickly realised this would not work. After just Holes 3,4 and 5 were very different and held large numbers of bigger fish. When I had reached the top of my beat I had just an hour left of the session, instead of fishing the whole river section again I just fished the final three holes which produced good numbers of size fish. This decision and time management on the water allowed me to win the overall session.

Oh yes! How to fish? A pool of deep, slow water with a shallow tailout flows into a classic deep run with uniform currents. I quickly moved to the second identified spot which was exactly the www. It's all happening here - A riffle is formed where the flow goes over a shallow rocky bottom on the left bank.

The run tails out in a narrow passage. There's even a small and very accessible eddy on the right bank. Picking the right technique and presenting it correctly then becomes extremely important. It is at this point that we start to consider leader setup, tippet diameter, weight of flies and technique. The type of river and the flow you are working with will to a large degree determine the technique that you should use. This is when the weight of your flies comes into play. If you feel like your flies are not drifting at the right level, you are probably right.

Change them until you find that warm fuzzy feeling that you are looking for. Keep in mind the species, where they feed at certain times of day and the specific conditions facing you. Be mindful and get the flies in the fishy zone. On one a recent trip to the Vaal I spent some time working on technique with a longtime fishing mate, Barry Ubsdell. What was. This meant that the flies were drifting higher in the water column in the heat of the day and the fish were feeding in this zone.

This success was due to making minor changes and testing the water at different levels. You see my point! My hopes in this article are more to highlight the importance of getting it all right, rather than just picking a feather out of a box - Brett. The team updates that he would deliver daily on a supporter's chat group had us in stitches and we knew that we had to have him aboard. Brett has kindly offered to share his knowledge and insights with us over the course of a series of articles.

On my daily commute home there is a traffic light that I always seem to catch catch on red. I try my hardest to stare fixedly ahead of me but I inevitably turn my head to look out of the passenger-side window. Between the Pakistani barber shop and a curry take away there is a tackle shop. The tackle shop has a 2mx2m shopfront window covered by a photo image of a young man in a trout stream holding a brown trout in his signature single-handed arms-length pose.

The man in the picture is Daniel Factor, Protea Flyfishing Team member and passionate ambassador of the sport. Dan has an attitude that is infectious and never does a negative word leave his mouth. We were very excited when we recently got the chance to speak to him. Oh brother, is he ever honest. FFM: Where did the whole flyfishing thing start for you? DF: It was in two places, kind of. It was one of those places where you had to buy bait and fish for trout with spinning rods.

One day I decided to use trout eggs and splitshot. FFM: Did it slow you down? DF: No. Not really. We went to Rainbow Trout Farm in Muldersdrift and I caught my first trout on fly - with my very first cast! FFM: Bloody hell! First cast! DF: Yes, I went to the hatchery pond around the back, cast in and there were like thirty fish fighting each other to get to onto the fly. FFM: looks around anxiously, wondering if this thing is going in the direction that he intended it to.

FFM: "coughs" OK, apart from hatchery ponds, if you could fish in dams or streams or the ocean or whatever which would you pick? DF: Rivers. Rivers, rivers, rivers. FFM: And if you had to pick one river to fish? DF: Just one? Like anywhere in the world or just at home? One I'd like to go to? FFM: Anywhere in the world. Any river.

Just pick one. DF: Oh, ok. Bolivia for golden dorado for sure. Competitive angling. Where did it begin for you? DF: Dries du Bruyn of Gauteng North introduced me to the competitive side of the sport as a junior angler. FFM: What is it about competitive angling that you enjoy most? DF: The travel. Meeting people from all corners of the world. FFM: How long have you been competing? DF: Jeez, around twelve years I think. I no, I suppose around twelve.

I started as a sixteen year old. Best memory while competing? DF: Easy. The World Champs held in Colorado. I decided to change it up. Standing in chest deep water I www. FFM: Most embarrassing memory while competing? DF: Umm. I told her that I needed a poo and she just stared at me. I tried to find somewhere private but she totally refused to take her eyes off me. DF: Pulled off my pants and, facing her, I pushed one out.

DF: ? Maybe more. FFM: Are you serious?. How do you get that past your wife? DF: Oh, thats not hard. I have the most supportive wife and without her nothing would be possible. It is important to find a balance and this is still something I am trying to figure out. DF: Stay away from the politics! No matter how good you are there is something to learn. Listen to the people around you and learn from them - the most complete anglers understand, are Adapt to conditions. Know the techniques and spend the time needed to practice them.

FFM: This makes a lot of sense. Do you have a particular mentor? Someone that you admire. I do corporate fishing getaways and guiding. Between all of that I work as a representative for Pure. Fishing SA. FFM: OK, we know that you had a hard hike up a Western Cape stream today, went shark diving yesterday,are going tuna fishing tomorrow and leave for the monster browns of Chile in a few sleeps time.

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only choose one fly what would it be? I believe that the weight of the fly is the most important factor.

Choosing a correct weight according to the depth and flow of the river will affect the quality of the drift. With a good drift a fish will almost eat anything. Although I do believe the colour of the bead for specific conditions makes a difference. Being successful at salmon fishing is not for the fainthearted. It can be oh so difficult and most of the time it is pure hard work. In mid-June, most of my friends had left home for salmon fishing in Norway. Some anglers complained about lack of rain and generally lack of salmon running through the rivers during the hot spell.

Other anglers jubilate after having landed the salmon of their dreams. Salmon fishing has always been like that, a cocktail of fascination and frustration: for those who are away on salmon fishing as well as for the ones having to stay back home. Since the opening day, I had considered quite a few times going to River Skjern, though.

This river is one of the few in Denmark having runs of salmon. But this year was a very special one as very few salmon were present when the fishing opened on April 16th. In a way it was okay with me as I then could relax and concentrate on my work and family without being inflicted by this strange disease called salmon fever… Schools of salmon During the first week of June, everything changed as I started reading reports of salmon caught in the River Skjern.

On June 10th ten fish were caught. The 12th another ten salmon came to the net. And then the 15th another nine… I decided to make a visit to the sluice gates at Hvide Sande. Consequently, all salmon running this river has to pass by the sluice and as is the case when salmon have to swim under a bridge, they often hesitate. The presence of schools of salmon here and there and the tell-tale splashes of mighty fish www. I text a sms to my fishing pal Kenny and ask him to update me on the situation in the river. Kenny is a keen salmon fisher himself and works at the House of the Salmon — the visitor centre at River Skjern.

Fly Fishing ULTRA Clear Water For Trout

It is now the moment! I plan going fishing Tuesday and Wednesday — can you join me? He suggests that we try a new location. We decide to go further upstream in an attempt to avoid the harsh westerly wind. Though we try to find a place where we can be the first on the beat, each time we drive down to the river, one or two cars are already parked there. After driving around in vain for half an hour we realise that today the majority of anglers on the river have one common priority: to f i n d s h e l t e r f o r t h e s t i f f w i n d.

A s a consequence, they flock on the same, sheltered stretches of the river as we are looking for. We decide to try a location downstream of the the Sonderby Spang foot bridge, some 25 kilometres from the fjord. As we cross the meadow to get to the river, Kenny kindly invites me to fish down first. We used to race down to the favoured bend in the local brown trout creek to in an attempt to be the first to cast out our Mepps spinner. Did that salmon take my fly? I start fishing just below the bridge while Kenny walks a few hundred m e t e r s downstream to begin his fishing there.

Worse still, the wind pushes the line on the surface in a manner that negatively affects any feeling with how the fly fishes. There is a fine balance between getting your fly close to the bottom where the salmon are holding and getting snagged. After ten minutes fishing, I get stuck in the bottom in the middle of the stream and by striking hard I succeed in freeing it.

As I start taking in line for a new cast a bright salmon leaps near the opposite bank making a significant splash. I estimate it to be between five and six kilos. I fish on with renewed enthusiasm after having yelled to let Kenny know that I just saw a running fish. Despite the wind, my casting is suddenly near to perfect. I have to fish out three casts before it really blows me away that my fly is gone. And then I realize the reason the salmon leapt: it had kindly been released by my breaking the tippet when I stroke hard as I thought the fly had snagged!

I rush down to explain what happened to Kenny, then quickly rushes back to take up the fishing again. Kenny tries to follow the fish as it runs downstream. I, too, start running as fast as I can. Though it is a strong salmon coming directly from the sea, Kenny manages to get it under control and ready for the net in no more than 10 minutes. Salmon with sea lice. As lice fall off after a few days in fresh water, sea lice are a sure sign of a fresh fish.. It is his first fish this year. The fish is killed, photographed, measured and weighed and we make a small video sequence and send it to our friends fishing in the Gaula in Norway.

A plethora of likes and enthusiastic comments on Facebook follows the photo of the salmon. We fish on for a couple of hours, then Kenny persuades me to have a break and to go to the nearby village and celebrate the catch with coffee and muffins. In the village, the salmon is admired by all that we meet. After the break we concentrate on some of the classical spots www.

The river runs narrow and deep up here, and in some places overhanging trees make it difficult to fish efficiently. Under the branches Kenny shows me how to cast so as to make the line fly just under the trees. Then the fly is given slack line to allow it to sink. It may cost a fly now and then to fish the lies under the branches, but is well worth it, Kenny explains.

Sea trout love to stay in places like that during the day. And the salmon, too, in fact. But the two species have different preferences. Whereas the sea trout will typically hide in the shaded darkness, the salmon prefer to lie at the edge between the shade and the sunlit water. I do have a slight take, when covering a lie under an old spruce.

A sea trout? I think so. Though it could as well have been a salmon. The House of the Salmon at River Skjern is a visiting centre for anglers. Here anglers purchase fishing licenses and get updated on the latest news about the fishing. There is no way, Kenny can counter it as the poles are connected to another pole on the bank by a cord — and the fly line is running under the cord. This time he is really caught up. Slowly but relentlessly, Kenny approaches the pole.

Now there is a danger that the rod will be knocked against the rusty metal, risking to break the rod or, worse still, he will lose that fish. We are both wearing short rubber boots as there is no need for waders when fishing at the height of summer. Kenny has no time for comments.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quickly he hands me his cell phone and wallet, then wades out. A meter from land, the water reaches to his belly button. Yet he needs to wade out further. He takes of his glasses and cast them to the bank. Cautiously, he wades takes a couple of steps into deeper water and manages to free the line from the first of the two iron poles. After dinner, we decide to return to the spot where Kenny caught his salmon earlier the same day.

As we cross the meadow, Kenny once again asks me if I want to fish down first.

G. E. M. Skues - WikiVisually

I just accept the invitation right away and walk down to start fishing where Kenny had started his fishing this morning. As I start reeling in, Kenny is reduced to a mere spectator as the line run out at an unbelievable pace. The fish has set off in direction downstream towards the fjord. In a few moments time the fish passes me. More than meters of backing are out. The rod is bend over in a full bow, and Kenny starts running, too. Caught up! A little further downstream, the salmonpulls between two iron poles placed out. Treading water to keep the head above the surface of the water and fighting the salmon at the same time!

Swimming with salmon Suddenly Kenny is afloat and fights to get the line past the second iron pole. He actually manages to free it and feels several hard jerks in the rod from the salmon. The fish is still moving downstream at a steady pace. More than meters of the backing are out now. Thanks to the buoyancy of the wadding jacket and good foot work, Kenny manages to stay in the surface.

His head and arms are on top of the water — most of the time. In between, he ducks under, then he resurfaces like a walrus and spits out a mouthful of water. He is shivering with the water pushing on his full body up to the neck. I reach out a hand to help him safely back onto land. He shivers like a drowned water. The salmon shows signs of fatigue and Kenny can regain the backing while I try to get some good shots with the camera. An invitation with guide About half a mile downstream from where it took, we find an appropriate spot to land the fish.

It is netted without much drama and quickly released. Quickly we pack the tackle and head for the car. If you should decide to stay home from your salmon holidays next year, we could fish together, here in the River Skjern. What do you say? I can guide you, if you wish?! On the one hand, the reasoning behind our fly patterns amounts to a kind of mythmaking that explains the way they are; on the other, our explanations are like performance art and all quite mystifying.

Either way, they bear the stamp of our individual minds. Our theories are impressed with something of who we are, and the choice of patterns we carry discloses something of us. Ted Leeson. Inventing Montana. Fly fishing is often spoken of as an art form just as fly tying is in its own right, a craft, a form of artistry. This series of articles is a celebration of this artistry, the innovation and the talents of local fly tyers their vision and imagination; these are our heritage flies.

To begin with it is appropriate to step back and revisit the history of fishing flies, where it all started, how fly tying has evolved and the origins of our own particular South African style; unfolding conwww. Little was written on fly fishing after the earliest recordings until the book attributed to Dame Juliana Berners, The Boke of St Albans was published in It contained a Treatyse on Fysshynge with an Angle in which there are instructions on rod, line and hook making, dressings for various flies and the times of the year when they should be used.

And, then there is a record dating back to the 15th Century of a manuscript held at the Bavarian Abbey of Tegernsee, which lists some fifty different fly patterns for catching various species of fish including salmon and trout. This chapter chapter is regarded as significant in the context of the progress and diversification of fly fishing and diversification of flyfishing and consequently imitative fly design.

However, the firsts book which dedicated complete sections to fly tying appeared in The Art of Angling, by Richard Bowker is regarded as the first handbook on the subject. He provided a list of his own flies, suggesting a sound knowledge of entomology and even described his ideas on techniques of fishing, such as the upstream methods.

In the 19th century fly fishing on the slow, clear chalkstreams of southern England like the famous River Test in Hampshire, F M Halford imposed his idiosyncratic view on dry fly fishing and established a follow-ing of anglers preoccupied with this single method approach, rejecting nymph and wet fly practices. Fly fishers needed to have flies that would float over the weed that typically grows close to the surface of these streams: a requirement that became the foundation for the construction of their beautifully tied dry flies imitating in part-icular the adult mayflies.

It is understandable, therefore, that the purists were shaken to the core when Edward Mackenzie Skues promoted the use of nymph and wet fly techniques in these streams were www. W C Stewart, a Scotsman, was one such proponent of the wet fly and who published a book, The Practical Angler in Perhaps one of his better-known flies being Stuart's black spider which is still being used to good effect to this day. The European colonialists who reached North America during the 18th and 19th Centuries, brought with them to their new land, a knowledge and interest in fly fishing.
