    Hi. I enjoy the information you share. It is of great value. As serious anglers you have an appreciation not only for the well being of the fish you catch but that of the conservation of environment as well. I have been fishing at Rietvlei since age 6. I am now 62. The dam and environment has deteriorated exponentially over the years. There is more reed then required for bass fishing. I wish I could wave a wond as it would be as beautiful as years gone by. Yet it still produces good catches.

      Thank you very much Hilton, that’s always great to hear that someone likes our content 🙂 We’ve only been going to Rietvlei the past 8 years and we’ve only known it the way it is now. I wish we could have seen it in it’s glory days, it must have been fantastic!
