Hengel was nie so goed nie.  Ons het ERG vasgesit...baie klippe en gras.  Ons het net 3 babers gavang wat effe noemens waardig is, die res was 2 klein babertjies en 2 klein muddies.  Kan nie glo ek kon nie 1 geelvis of karp uithaal nie.  Gelukkig het die weer lekker saamgespeel.

Hi SLAMS. We camped in tents on the Terrace.  I didn't really take notice of the putt-putt course and play-area, but it seemed ok.  The abblution facilities that we used also seemed fine, was clean and there was hot water.  The entire resort was neat, so it seems they may have put some effort into it.  It's just bit of a challenge finding a good fishing spot.  (If you go, find the old pump house, there's a nice fishing spot next to it.  We didn't get too many snags there)

Hi SLAMS

Check the map: http://www.smilinthru.co.za/images/Smilin%20Thru%20map.jpg

Look just to the right of the pool, you'll see the "pool rondavel".  the spot I'm referring to is right next to it on the right hand side.

There are a couple of stands there, but they're quite far from the bathrooms.

thanks for the help, did you cast in other parts of the bank. or were you told that fishing is better over there.

Im getting some baber bomb, going to test it over there.

I did cast in 2 other places as well, but got snagged BIG time....and only caught the smaller of the barbel there.  It was trial and error.
