    Default Fly fishing around JHB

    Are there any half decent fly fishing spots around JHB ?
    Dullstroom is always an option, but a bit far. Thinking of a quick Sunday morning session.

    Cheers

    I have seen some nice trout have been coming out at Kloofzicht lodge in the cradle past few weeks

    There are also a couple of other venues in the cradle

    There are a few nice ones there in the cradle of humankind area. Can't remember the name of the one I visited, but drove past a few there.

    There are a couple of nice venues if you are looking for trout specifically.

    Kloofzicht - Cradle
    Brookwood - Cradle
    Footloose - Fourways

    The Vaal river is to cold to wade through this time of the year. Unless you have a boat.

    Vaal river is my more frequented local in summer months when yellow fever has bit.

    We are actually heading to Emhlangeni tomorrow morning for a trout session, will let you know if its worth a trip. http://www.emhlangeni.co.za/ 25 minute drive for me.
