KZNFFA will be visiting the UHTFC on the 17th May from 14.30 at the Underberg Country Club where a Fishing Clinic will be conducted. All keen fly fishers are invited at NO CHARGE.
Stocking of still waters have commenced. The club used Crystal Waters hatchery and Splashy Fen hatchery to stock several still waters. There stockies were in great condition. Stocking of a further 5 still waters was done with Giants Cup Hatchery stockies, a touch of the finest thanks to Wolf and Jack.
We’re looking forward to a chilly MAY AUTUMN where lots of stories will be discussed next to a log fire.
The clinics are continuing on Fridays and things are starting to get exciting.
The youngsters have all progressed fantastically and during the last clinic showed off their skills by casting in long grass. I’ve seen many an experienced fisherman battle with similar conditions.
Two of the youngsters hooked into fish much to the delight of the rest of the fisherman. Sadly both the fish came off but I’m sure just the act of hooking a fish added to the excitement and got them hooked (so to speak).
Hopefully a few fish will be brought to hand during the next clinic.
We’re proud to announce that as of the 25 January we are now holding a fly fishing clinic on Fridays at 16:00 at the Underberg Country Club.
The Water Management Program is focusing on bramble eradication and weed eradication . The use of Midstream in still waters is positive.
Welcome back for a hopefully great year’s fishing at the Underberg Himeville Trout Fishing Club.
We’re happy to report that the fishing was great over the Christmas period, perhaps due to the large number of people visiting the area over the festive season. A number of good fish came out so hopefully this continues during the year.
Soon the water temperatures will begin to drop and fishing should further improve.
Finally welcome to all of our new members. Enjoy your time exploring the excellent new waters available to you.
We look forward to seeing you all and hope you have a fantastic year on the water (and manage to sneak in a few extra trips).
The UHTFC has joined up with KZNFFA to promote fly fishing within the area.
Six young pupils at Faithway School in Himeville have been targeted and clinics will begin soon after exams are completed. The UHTFC would like to thank KZNFFA for the equipment donated in the form of rods, reels, nets, flyboxes and tippet material.
Clinics will begin at the Underberg Country Club on Friday afternoons.
Lake Isabella and Lake Ringstead will be stocked this month with 200 10inch trout and 800 6inch trout respectively. This will see the UHTFC through the Xmas period.
