After last months report noting that there had been a slow start to Spring, we are pleased to report Nottingham Road ended October with some 75mm in the gauge. While not quite the 100mm average my records indicate we should have received for the month, a darn site better than the 54mm of last year.

The spate of mists and drizzle has been a veritable Kiss of Life to the area, and the fishing shows it!
It kicked off mid-October with WildFly Fishing Club member Brett Webber, and his lovely lady Lyndall, totting up over 20 fish between them on a Red Letter Day on African Shellduck Dam in the Kamberg.

And the reports keep rolling in : a recent visit by Mpumalanga anglers Alison O'Brien and Maureen Brits found themselves in the fish...

We must get the "What's Biting...?" question at least 10x a day in the WildFly Retail store - so here's the answer!

The rains are getting the fish on the move all round, with reports indicating that the rivers are also currently fishing well.
