If you’ve spent some time in the Garden Route over the past year the chances are you would have seen Ian Kitching fishing the lagoons on his awesome stand up fishers -props- http://www.supfisher.co.za/. Hes also caught some giant Grunter on surface flies. I would be jealous if i wasn’t so damn impressed. Quite possibly the biggest grunts I’ve seen taken on the fly. Well done Ian. You might recognise that cap- Flydotfish ( www.flydotfish.com ) is Henkie Altenas guiding outfit. He was a trailblazer in these parts and introduced me to the fly I fish the most.
Fantastic fish! Please let us know what patterns are used on the surface to catch the spotted grunter?
Awesome fish – please are you able to let us know what pattern is used to catch these grunter on the surface? I’m itching to tie some up already! Thanks – metiefly
