South Africa’s fly-fishing capital

Only 2 hours from Gauteng

Dullstroom is arguably South Africa’s fly-fishing capital, offering excellent still water and river fishing. Rainbow and brown trout are stocked in most dams and streams. Fly fishing goes all the way back to around 200 AD. The first reference to it was written by Aelian who was born around 170 AD. Early in his life he knew nothing of the sea. In his early writing “On The Nature Of Animals” he writes about a certain way of catching fish supposedly invented by the Macedonians.
