Waters & words : a celebration of flyfishing

Stillwater celebration

The mornings have been cold. Lake fringes, boats and tackle have been laced with ice. The sun has been golden, sweet and welcome. The water has been sparkling, clear, and shimmering blue in contrast to the dusty veld. The Trout have been willing at times. We have had small strong silver fish, and larger Rainbows, flushed in deep colours. We have warded off the chilly breezes with jackets and gloves and “buffs”. Hot coffee has been essential.

The sunsets have come quickly.

    • The boat (Waelcyrge) was almost new: purpose built by a master-craftsman. It is indeed awesome! Thanks for reading.

  2. Have a great winter season on the water. Here the winter seldom provides fun fishing, so I’m more than ready for a summer with the trout.

    • We are fortunate to have winters as mild as we do. It offers us superb stillwater fishing while the rivers are closed.
