The best way to get out of the office or the business of the city

We are all about eco friendly Sport and Fly Fishing. Options include a variety of destinations a short drive just outside Johannesburg in Bronkhorstpruit, Magaliesburg or Cradle of Humankind (much closer than you think) to bucket list trips in South and Southern Africa. We have some of the best fishing available for you to enjoy.

The hot days and spectacular thunderstorms are a clear sign that we are fully into our African Summer. This provides perfect conditions for indigenous fish (yellow fish, Tiger fish, kurper, cat fish) and well as bass, carp etc. We consider rivers as the most enjoyable fishing location but we also have many awesome dam options to consider. Beginners or intermediate fishers can join one of our Introductory group or private lessons close to Joburg/Pretoria and we would love to guide you through the basic techniques required for the wonderful art of fly fishing. Intermediate fishers may like to join one of our group or private clinics where we focus on more technical aspects of fly fishing for trout. Sport and fly fishing is an open air, outdoor activity, so lends itself to social distancing. This is important as we care about your health and safety. We have commenced with our mouth watering sport and fly fishing packages on Sterkfontein Dam, Orange River (Karoo Gariep and Richtersveld), small stream (Cradle of humankind) and Zambezi (Deka Tiger Mile, Zimbabwe)

  • Beginner Group Fly Fishing lesson review by Anthony Boje

    The instructor was knowledgeable and enthusiastic which made the lesson fun, even in the rain.He also spent some extra time with us at the dam, after the lesson, to help us on a one-on-one basis thus ensuring that we were able to spend the rest of the day practicing and having fun.This was a great father/son activity.Thanks to Pieter for the great lesson (and the much needed hot coffee)....
