24lbs from Umba. Lower Rat Pool

Life is about experiences and in fishing terms Krivetz always seems to provide an unforgettable experience every visit. Last year I hooked a fish on a sunny morning in Island Pool, it played with me for about a minute before leaving the tail of the pool faster than any other fish I have ever hooked, took 350 metres of line, burnt and ruined my running line and of course broke the leader. I went back this year (September 2010) on a cloudy morning, the water a little lower and in the same lie another fish which did exactly the same but because of the lower water Sacha and I were able to follow by running through the stream. I landed the fish of 11+kg 300 metres downstream in a little pocket in the rapid after 20 minutes of frantic activity. What a place, what a fight, what an experience and what will be there next year?
