A day on a Cape Stream

I finally got a chance today to celebrate the opening of our river season down here in the Cape. My mate Roland and I set out early this morning for one of the local streams.

The rivers are still a little high and the morning started of very slow. There were plenty of Mayflies on the water but we didn't see and fish or any rises.

Eventually at about 10am I got my first fish on a Elk Hair Caddis  and soon after Roland landed a beautiful brown trout on a Parachute Adams.

From then on we each made turns landing fish on both Nymphs and dries. It really was great to be out on the streams again, but the long winter worked its toll on my body and I can feel a few muscles complaining tonight.


  1. Man that's beautiful country... the fish are pretty nice too! Thanks for the report. =)

  4. Very nice fishing! This pleace looks like very much to the river near my home here in Mendoza, Argentina.

    All the best.
