Semonkong Lodge Fly Fishing

The team are in the stunning kingdom of Lesotho, fly fishing at Semonkong Lodge on the upper reaches of the The Maletsunyane River. The river was originally stocked in the 1950's with Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout and both species now thrive here along with the native Yellowfish. The browns here here can reach prodigious sizes and its not unusual to catch them up to 10lbs which is incredible for South Africa.  The water is very low and the sun bright as the Wildfly team start fishing, so knowing that the trout are likely to be in the deeper pools, they start by using weighted streamers to get down to the fish. Smallmouth Yellowfish and Rainbow Trout also reside here, often together in the same areas so Gareth decides to move downstream and soon picks up a nice rainbow. The team camp overnight in the stunning valley and make an early start with Jeremy landing one of the monster brown trout the river is known for, right next to the campsite. But the following evening, rain arrives and colours up the river making fly fishing difficult so the team head back down the gorge to Semonkong Lodge but will there be one last chance for Gareth to get the brown he is after?
