Erina Spa, is nice, it has super tubes for the kids in summer, also riverlake, the guy has a dam on his property and he asks people that catch nice size carps and barbels to relocate them into the dam

Hey, Joe! X#X

Whooo! Been fishing at Rietvlei since I was a laaitie!

There are MASSIVE carp, and Black Bass.

We never had any major success, besides looking at the more professional anglers' near us bagging stuff. :o0ps:

The dam's water is very clear, so you can sometimes see the fish...and become frustrated! 0=

As a student we went there once or twice and caught little kurper while sitting in the water (It was a hot day) and making a competition out of it! It didn't end well, but there we go! :twisted:

The Northernmost end is shallow, so pro bass fishermen can wade about. We encountered my English professor there one Sunday afternoon, I remember it well.

He had had bad experiences with my entire family over the years, socially and educationally...but took it all in good spirit! :twisted: :o0ps:
