Chantelle Marais / Travel Africa / Explore the Karoo
Olive Schreiner loved the Karoo with a passion that is reflected in much of her writing. She spent her early life in the Eastern Cape and its varied landscapes are celebrated in her work, nowhere more evocatively than in her most famous book, A Story of an African Farm.

Wild Fly Fishing in the Karoo - A little closer to Cradock, the Paul's river, whose origins are also fountain sourced, hold several old hippo holes with clear water that also connects with the brown Orange / Fish river water.  The fish (yellowfish, moggel, mudfish, carp and barbel) move up the clear Paul's river in search of food and gravel beds to spawn.  Here, patience and stealthy water craft has the fish literally nymphing at your feet. Orange Fish, Spawn, Water Crafts, Carp, Origins, Fly Fishing, Patience, Closer, South Africa
