Garden Route Exploration

Garden Route Exploration

My last trip up to the garden route was a disaster fish wise.  Despite being my lucky new moon the rivers were practically fresh water from all the rain.  And COLD from the snow.  I measured Little Brak at 13 degrees.

But this gave me a great opportunity to explore some estuaries and areas I haven’t had a chance to-

Gerikes Point:
A hot spot for Mussel Cracker.  The sea was too big for me but I think on less than 1.5m swell it could produce well.

Gerikes Point Reefs
Red Rock Crab at Gerikes Point

Great Brak River:
Still as beautiful as I remember it.  Unfortunately it was a watery desert in the cold but its been open all winter and should produce this summer.

The reefs at Little Brak Mouth:
Looked absolutely pristine for Belman.  Ill be back there this summer.

The Reefs at Little Brak Mouth

A legend in fly fishing circles.  Its now wide open.  Should be incredible this summer.
