If you thought Vanderkloof Dam didn’t have big fish to catch think again! This one was caught on Saturday, 22 March, by Jeremy Grace. It was caught with a muishond fly, 9wt sage RPLXI, sci angler intermediate line. Was fought for an hour and a bit and safely released! As far as is known this is the unofficial SA record for a Largemouth Yellow on Fly in South Africa!
Vanderkloof Dam is a sanctuary for largemouth yellows, no other dam has nearly as many largies as this dam – for this reason it is best that bass should NOT be released in this dam and if one is caught it should be removed. There are more than enough dam’s with bass while there are no dam except for Vanderkloof with a healthy population of largies.
