Seek the mighty Tigerfish, the fighting Bream or the legendary Trout in the waters of Southern Africa and you will discover true tranquility and peace.

The highlight of Saltwater Fly Fishing is that you are able to watch the sun rise while standing knee deep in the waves, waiting patiently for a bite. When droughts become a problem in South Africa, fishermen can also try their hand at Stillwater Fly Fishing. This type of fishing takes place in man-made impoundments, where the Trout are usually quite large.

Excellent locations for Fly Fishing

Popular fly-fishing destinations in South Africa include the Drakensberg area, due to the abundance of excellent Trout and Bass fishing. Other good fly-fishing locations include the midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape. In the Western Cape, Trout are found high in the mountains.

Several excellent fly-fishing destinations can be found all over Southern Africa. Exquisite fish can be caught in some breathtaking locations in Southern African countries such as Zambia, Mozambique, Kenya, Botswana and Namibia.

Best season for fly-fishing

In South Africa the best time to Fly Fish is definitely from September to October, and in autumn, from late March through May. During these months the water is cooler and the Trout are more active feeders.
