Kevin hooked and landed this 12kg carp on fly using a 5 weight fly rod! His PB after a 40 min fight!

It was at Vaal hackle on Friday and Kev used a self-tied black nymph. You can ask questions or for advice on their YouTube channel or instagram (Uncharted fly-fishing) and ask for tips or even to fish with them in future, they are great guys!

Hi Tshepo, welcome to the best fishing site on the web. There are so many great places on the Vaal, like Vaal hackle, Silwerstrome and many more below the barrage and now is the time the fish come alive!!Get to these places and approach fly fishermen for some tips and assistance, I am sure you will learn a lot.
Good luck and enjoy!
