Outstanding post here dude!

And I don't throw the 'outstanding' thing around every day. Very very different slant on a thread post, I love it, I spend considerable effort in avoidance of the maddening crowds even here.............

Nice,

Ard

Post of the year right there! The writing is as good as the pictures. I felt like I was going on a journey with you. Very cool man, now more! More!

This post makes me want to be there. I really need to start exploring into the interiors of my state where it gets a bit more hilly. In the areas near me, we don't have a whole lot of unspoiled waters, but I'm slowly learning some of the less trodden ones... however, nothing like the beautiful pictures you're showing! Three cheers for the fly fishing sloth(e?)s, and three cheers for you FC for writing one heck of a post!

Your pictures make me want to visit South Africa before I'm too old to scale down and back into a gorge like that. Are there many people chasing after the fish there? Also, are you going into a sort of winter at this time of year? We are on opposite poles so to say, at least near the poles. It is slowly getting to be summer here and I am quite ready.

Incredible looking spots! Terrific writing in telling it like it is ! I'm impressed and at the same time jealous . Thank you for another view and a great one at that!
