  1. Do you have some masters to train us in trout fishing? Never did it before. You do have rods available for hiring?

  2. Hi Sanette,

    Yes we do provide all the equipment needed for fly fishing.

    We have graphite rods that you can hire to fish at any 5 of our well stocked mountain dams.

    You will have to put down a deposit of R200 which you will get back upon return.

    There is a charge of R70 for the rod hire and you will have to purchase a fishing permit which will be valid for the duration of your stay which is R80.

    Hope this information will suffice.

    Warm Regards

      You have to purchase a fishing permit from the Activities desk. It is R80.00 for the duration of your stay.
