The Double Haul by Dries de Bruyn
How come the club always picks a date in the most unpleasant weather conditions...windy and cold...blame it on a cold front from the cape?. A retired fly fishers once told me...don't moan about the weather conditions...adapt or go home...so true!
10 club members braved the weather conditions and had some serious fun. The session was facilitated by Dries de Bruyn (SA National Fly Fishing Champion for 2013) and knowing Dries he was well prepared and did a sterling job of demonstrating the single and double haul and then individually teaching each member.
Members walked away from this session knowing their own faults and 'bad habits' and need to practice to improve their casting skills including accurate/precision casting.
The session ended off with lunch and refreshments at the club house.
Thanks goes to Stuart for putting the event together and to Dries for a job well done and to the members for participating.
Till next time all the very best in fly fishing
