Fly Fishing

Fly fishing has become popular in the Drakensberg owing to the abundance of excellent trout and bass. The many crystal rivers and clear dams in the higher reaches are regular favourites with skilled fly fishermen, as well as with the growing number of recently initiated fishermen and women who embrace this most challenging and satisfying of angling pursuits. First imported to South from Scotland in 1890 by Balgowan farmer John Clarke Parker, brown and rainbow trout now occur throughout the region and reach good sizes in the cool mountain waters and in wellstocked rivers such as the Bushman’s and Injisuti. These are trout with an impressive fighting spirit. They make for very tasty meals, whether grilled or fried.
