19 October 2013 - Umkomaas
er a long break in the League calendar due to various religious fasts it was time for the much anticipated 6th event. Lots if not all guys were already suffering from withdrawal symptoms due to the long break and not even the inclement weather that was forecasted for the weekend was going to deter the event from taking place. Although there were some frantic calls and messages doing the rounds with concerns of safety and for some uncomfortable braai conditions. With only a 3 week gap between the next and last League event it was decided to go ahead with the event on the selected date and access the conditions on the day, and if possible we fish the conditions.
Team Rock Hoppers was dedicated the task of choosing the venue and times to fish and after a short midweek breakfast meet we did a vote amongst us to choose a venue and two areas popped up, 1 north and 1 south. After a 2nd round of voting, Umkomaas was the chosen spot. With it being spring tide we decided to start as early as possible to fish running out and a bit of the coming in water. The initial spot was going to be The North Bank and South bank of the River but with conditions not too favourable here a consensus was reached on the morning to fish the ledges urther south and the boundaries were set.
