|Mana: ||Hi popperdotcom - I fished the Malibamatsu river and the Peleneng tributery around Hlajoni extensively in 1989 during the building of the access roads by LTA Construction and Moolman Brothers,for the building of the Khatse dam.I stayed up there for almost a month in October and due to a spell of snow, sleet amd rain, also experienced the rivers coming down dirty and muddy! I had no choice but to improvise and tied some bucktail streamer flies with black bodies and tails and bright yellow bucktail wings on top. This did the trick on a fast sinking line and gave enough contrast between the black body and tail underneath and bright yellow wing on top to produce countless rainbow trout in the faster watert and very nice smallmouth yellows in the slowe water. This fly was later named the "Malibamatsu horrer" by those who saw its effectiveness - I have no doubt that it will produce for you in the dam as well! It is a very special place - enjoy !
