Bass fishing in South Africa usually takes in the summer, that is all the month's that have and "r" in them.
Took a #6 fly rod down to one of the farm ponds and tried my luck, well first cast and I caught a nice small-mouthed bass. These bass are real fighters and give you a good run for your money.

+/- 2 lbs.
Same fish, photo by Enrico Bucceri, a.k.a., the Italian Leprechaun. The following photos were all taken by Enrico.
I look a bit startled here, but this photo gives a nice idea of the size of the fish.
Tombi watching me cast. I think I have mentioned it before, Tombi means young girl in Zulu. Not so young any more +/- 14 years old now.
Second bass, small but gave a good account of itself.
Third fish, slightly bigger than the second. I caught four fish and missed several, think the hook was a bit blunt.
My fly was a large "woolly bugger".
