Or just take up flyfishing and use a flexo or contraband crab pattern;)

I've fly fished the Vaal extensively with conventional patterns and nymphing, and is my preferred method. Mustard Caddis no.14, and Flashback Nymph (no.16). Flashback must be UV.
I have seen guys that are very good proving to us that there are fish and we are just not getting our flies down, by putting on a crab and drifting is down the same lanes we do and VAS.
Guys like Turner Wilkinson are very good on the Vaal.
