My First Specimen Trip
Planning was short, about a week in advance, on my first official specimen angling session. Jacques (Carassius) did our bookings for us at Donaldson Dam just outside of Randfontein. With it being the Rugby World Cup final, the banks of Donaldson was quite and we knew a good session was to be had.
I arrived at the venue first @ 12H05 and started getting the "Camp" ready as the clouds forming above was getting darker and heavier. Rather concerned about the heavy lightning I decided to take cover under the Gazebo, as if that will stop the lightning. The clouds opened up and water poured down from the heavens.
