One of the big questions that many anglers find themselves grappling with, and which they are sure will reveal the big secret to catching bigger fish than anyone else, is what the best time of year is to pack up your gear and head for the waters. Perhaps you should follow the example of Rohan Koegelenberg and keep a diary, so that you can compare the conditions during your current fishing trip to the same time last year, or the year before. Looking back at the conditions on the Vaal River over the years, Rohan, however, reached the conclusion that whatever the weather, the secret lies in making the most of your angling adventure, and making sure that you have the right tackle to do so. This month, we take you across the length and breadth of our beautiful country. Paging through this issue of Tight Lines, you can follow Rohan and catch yellowfish on the Vaal River or join Eben Dowd to catch trout near Belfast in Mpumalanga. Andries Maree gives you professional tips on catching bass in Limpopo’s Rust de Winter Dam. Chris Nolan talks to guest angler Riaan la Grange about catching white musselcracker or brusher, as it is also known, in Still Bay in the Southern Cape. Danie Engelbrecht takes us to the Jozini Dam in KwaZulu-Natal to catch tigerfish. You can also read about the excitement that formed part of two angling competitions: the Buffelspoort Business Challenge, a trophy carp angling competition that was held in August, and the 3 Species Bonanza, which was held at Loskop Dam in September, where the race was on to catch the heaviest carp, barbel and bass. Make the most of this time of year, and be sure to have the right tackle. Until next time, happy angling! Editor
