Fly Fishing in KwaZulu-Natal North Coast.
The South African fly-fishing scene is not big by international standards, so it is advisable to approach a professional outfit to find the best option to suit your proclivity. South Africa is prone to drought conditions, so most fly-fishing is stillwater fly-fishing in man-made bodies of water.
If you think this sounds dull, think again. In KwaZulu-Natal’s North Coast you can fly fish in the Pongola Dam which is flanked on all sides by the pristine bushveld of private wildlife reserves. Animals such as elephants, leopards, buffalo and Rhino as well as many bird species can be spotted while fishing on a comfortable custom-built fly-fishing boat. There are 27 species of fish in the dam but the aim of a fishing excursion here is the Africa Tiger Fish- holy grail for many anglers.
The Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu-Natal spawn many streams where the fly-fishing favourite, trout, has been introduced. Fly-fishing operators can also arrange an expedition to one of these special places.
