It's been too long since I last fished so I sent an email to [email protected] and secured a slot to fish Kloofzight Lodge this Sunday, here's hoping I have a good day out and get a few decent fish.

Will follow the results with interest - some past employees, clients and students are all involved :).

Good luck to all the angler attending the 2019 SAFFA A Nationals in Pilgrems Rest.

May you have safe travels and an exciting tournament.

We would also like to take this time to thank everyone involved in arranging a tournament like this.

Mpumalanga Fly Fishing Association has put in a lot of effort to ensure there is plenty of fish for everyone, they have spent countless hours clearing access to the river as well as making arrangements for Marshals and sector Judges, securing accommodation. Lyle Smith we wish you and the support staff a successful tournament!

Safe travels everyone and see you at the Opening Ceremony tomorrow night.

Are You Right Hand Wind Or Left Hand Wind

When I owned and operated UFF I was often hampered (or not) by a lack of in depth knowledge regarding the theories of fly fishing. However what I did know was I had an innate instinct to reel with my left hand and use my dominant arm for rod control. I had many debates with both inexperienced and experienced clients while setting up reels and trying to advise why and heard many reasons for and against. However this video by @Ardvark McCloud makes a lot more sense than I ever did, thanks 😉

In this video Peter McLeod tackles the age old debate of right hand wind versus left hand wind when using a fly reel. Often a hotly contested subject he puts...

The 10 Commandments of Wading

Plain common sense but amazing how many folks ignore these rules.

Commandments of wading are many, and for good reason. A couple years ago, I decided to cross a side channel in the Yellowstone River to an island which would give me access to a superb run. Dave, my podcast partner, and I were fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park. The side channel was only about...

Breaking news!

Vision and the world famous Michelin rubber company have agreed to collaborate on developing high performance rubber soles for wading shoes.

Vision has worked for more than ten years developing rubber compounds for wading shoes. When we found out that Michelin had started working with outdoor shoes we contacted them and told them about fly fishing and the need for a more premium rubber. After the first intensive year developing and testing we can make this official today. Later this year we will launch the first wading shoes with Michelin soles.

A warm welcome to our new partner Michelin!

I have not done much in the way of news letters and social media on this page since closing the shop but I am very excited that a bunch of my mates have taken over the SA Flyfishing Magazine so excuse me for sharing the news with you all.

This magazine was the first of its kind in South Africa and has continued over the years to entertain and inform fly fishers of all disciplines.  We were not prepared to lose ...

Seems that Vaal Streams is now under new management/ownership so let's give them a try, remember that is the Vaal below Parys and the barrage is blown then this resort is a safe fishing alternative. Any one keen on going this Sunday ?

Good Day.
We apologise for any bad reviews on Vaal Streams on the their previous page or in past as in an experience. Myself Judi and Alan have taken over recently and our standards are at a much higher ranking. As you have noticed we have redesigned our logo, also in the process of a new website and possible name change. Vaal Streams is under new ownership and management. This is our new page and what happened with the previous owners we can not be held responsible for their actions.

Please be so kind as to join us at Vaal Streams for an Eco resort experience.

Kind Regards
Judi and Alan.

Have had the privilege of meeting Trevor a few times and he is a real gem, keep on growing in this sport and the ethos around it in your village, area and around the globe.
I was so looking forward to Spring and fishing this stretch of water but from the looks of this, ineptitude and kleptocracy have struck again - now it's no better than a toilet! So so sad and guess who'll be the first to cry foul when there's a cholera epidemic and rush to the fiscus with hands outstretched.
