How it all started – the background story to Sundown Adventures

Wayne Sinclair, the visionary behind Sundowner Adventures.
Wayne has been fly fishing since the age of 9. While studying towards an IMM diploma in Joburg, he started Sundowner Adventures and the marketing of Sundowner Zambezi Lodge (which is family owned).
After graduating, Wayne developed and grew the company as a Tour operation, specialising in Zimbabwe and the rest of Southern Africa. In 2002 he decided to pursue his passion and focus on the fishing industry. His saltwater fishing and guiding has taken him to many areas ranging along both the South African and Mozambican coast. His focus on Southern Africa’s indigenous freshwater species like Tiger fish and Yellow fish has made him a specialist in these fields.

Over the years he has fished in over six countries within the Southern African region. He was instrumental in the development of the patterns and techniques for large & small scale Yellow fish in small stream environments. On the Tiger fish side, Wayne and his father – Trevor Sinclair, were instrumental in building on dry fly techniques (which was originally developed by Dr Phillip de Moor) for the fishing of Zambezi Tiger fish. He has developed “out the box” team building techniques and people development skills, using the processes of fly fishing.
