Catching up with Nic F

A friend of ours, Nic F, went on a bit of a fishing trip a couple of weeks ago. Whilst he was away, he sent through some photographs of the places he visited as well as some of the catches he made. The two places he caught at were:

Here are the photographs Nic grabbed for us, the one on the boat and the house is Coots Cottage (Galileo Farm). The rest are Old Mac Daddy:

Thanks for popping us some photographs, Nic.

An afternoon at Du Toitskloof


Posted on 7th October 2012 by admin in Catches |News

Today presented itself with the perfect opportunity to go fishing – slightly overcast, a little drizzle here and there, but not too cold for the fish. The quickest and easiest destination: Du Toitskloof Fly Fishing.

The fish were going for red flies and flies with red patterns, a very slow retrieve and literally dragging the fly along the bottom. A lot of small trout, nipping and darting off, but a couple big ones were roaming the waters too. The first dam near the parking lot saw about 10 fish being pulled out, mostly small and the big one in the photograph below is from the small dam next to the first one.

Where did the time go?!

It’s been over 4 months since we updated this website and before we wish you Happy New Year, we’d like to apologize for the slowness. The end of 2011 was incredibly busy and, as you probably know, 2012’s started off at full pace! If you’re anything like us, you’ll probably be wondering how on earth we’re entering into the 3rd month of 2012 already.

So, Happy New Year!!!

Instead of us writing up a post on things we’ve done, we’d love to hear from you, where have you been fly fishing, what have you caught and what did you learn over the festive season?

Ok ok, we’ll share a few things. Here are 5 highly popular fishing spots worth looking into:

  1. Lakenvlei Dam
  2. Orange River
  3. The Western Cape Streams (of course!)
  4. Off Cape Point
  5. Sandvlei

Go check them out if you haven’t!

New DVD: The River Why?


Posted on 3rd November 2011 by admin in News

‘A River Runs Through It’ enlivened the fly fishing community all over the world, and brought thousands of new people into the sport, simply with the power of some celebrities and a few fly fishing scenes.

‘The River Why’ based on the book by David James Duncan is sure to do even better, as the protagonist is fly fishing ‘mal’ and the book a well known classic. If you have read the book, you will know what I am talking about, but if you havent, I suggest you do, as this is one of fly fishing’s classic stories.

The movie is going to be offered at a pre-release price saving of 20%.

The official date for stock to arrive is 8th of November.

Some information on the DVD:

Sick of living in a home shrouded with secrets, lies and a smothering sense of competition, Gus (Zach Gilford, Friday Night Lights) runs away from home and the shadow of his famous fly-fishing father (William Hurt). Determined to live life like he wants it, Gus makes his new home in a secluded cabin on the banks of a river where he plans to fish all day. Instead, he is propelled into a quest for self-discovery. An assortment of eccentric characters, including a free-spirited girl (Amber Heard, Zombieland) who shares his fondness for fishing, helps him find his way toward adulthood. Based on a book that has become a cult classic and set in the breathtaking wilds of Oregon, The River Why will cast a spell on your heart.
