South Africa’s premier Yellowfish Fly-Fishing portal.
Dedicated to the conservation of our indigenous Yellowfish Species.
Focused on the education of anglers and the general public.
The economic value Yellowfish adds to local communities.
We endevour to achieve this by creating a platform where the fly-fishing industry,
tourism, communities, local business and fly-fishers can engage, interact and take hands
to ensure the longevity of our beloved natural asset.
Conservation and Research
Conservation is not an optional extra.
It is what generation rely on.
Many museums are a sad monument to the failure of the human race,
to protect, guard and steward our natural resources.
Through Research we can learn and discover what is truly necessary,
to ensure not only the survival, but the thriving of our species.
Yellowfish are under huge pressure due to many factors,
like pollution. If fish die, due to pollution it is a screaming siren to warn us,
that our life sustaining water is killing us.
Help us to empower researchers and conservationists by giving information.
Small acts like picking up papers by the rivers are making a difference.
