Spent the weekend fishing the UHTFC Xplorer festival this weekend and what a top event it was. I ended up with 16 Trout in total and two very nice bass as well. Fished some stunning water even through some tough conditions thrown at us by the gods on the Saturday after noon.

I really didn't bother taking many images of the fish I caught, well it wasn't that kind of event to be honest, but this is just one of four decent cock fish I pulled out from Abbingdon dam. This one with a Solarez Spoon fly....I know all you purists out there will be tutting and rolling your eyes around but to be brutally honest, I don't give a rats arse.... Have fished spoon flies all my life and they have caught m untold fish over the years so why not still water Trout.

More free swag from this years FFFT Expo. I've used more dubbings since moving back to SA than any other time in my fly fishing career purely because the type of fly fishing I'm doing these days warrants me using more of the stuff. Yes I blend my own dubbings at home but that was more through sheer necessity because I couldn't find the rights colour blends I needed over here. Now it looks like all my problems have been solved.

Flyworx dubbings are home grown and was started by Rod Smit up in Gauteng. What I've posted here is just a small sample from a much larger range they have on their shelves. Flyworx prices are very reasonable as well, and in all honesty with the cost of importing overseas brands into SA, let alone the time its taking for shipments to arrive into this country, I think all South African fly fisherman that tie their own flies as well as fly fishing retailers should really get behind and support a locally produced product.

Again these are just some b...

The one great thing about fly fishing is that after a while nothing exists of the world but thoughts about fly fishing
