South African angler breaks ‘brown’ duck!

Lance, over from South Africa on a family holiday, had never landed a brown trout on the fly before this trip.

This is one of a number he and (return ‘Tagger’) Anthony got to hand during a cool day on the stream.

Although no hatches, due to low temperature, the bead-head nymph worked well throughout the day.

Anthony also got a number of nice small stream fish, shown below.

Here he is hooked up to a good fish and a quick photo of the result before release.
