A Kob a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!

Jannie and I had a lovely trip to the Breede River  in October 2015. No monsters caught, but we had lots of fun and learned a lot. I caught 4 kob on fly (2 on a surface fly and 2 on a large “sponge bob”), 1 on a paddle tail, 2 barbel on prawn; and many moonies on a floating fly, double bunny fish pattern and even a 4/0 flipper.

Jannie caught a kob, stompies and moonies. Jannie also managed to change the name of the “Canoe” to the “submarine” (he took out a small boat and managed to capsize it – twice!).


We tried for grunter on surface lures for a short while. I also tried for garrick for about 2 hours, but we were really targeting the kob early mornings and late afternoons (apart from the Saturday Sprinbok rugby session) this time.

All kob tagged and all fish released.
