We offer our clients guided fly fishing trips for Yellow Fish on the Vaal River. Day trips are popular as the river is around a 45 minute drive from

Johannesburg, but we also cater for longer packages. Accommodation in or around the fishing venue can be sourced and booked on behalf of

the client at the time of the booking. The Vaal River is home to some monster sized trophy Yellows as well as a large variety of animal & bird life

with some outstanding views. The USA, UK and the Netherlands top’s our international clients list to date. During the summer season you can

expect to find good running water, rapids, glides and pools. Mayfly and caddis are plentiful offering us anglers many fly patterns with which to

hook a beauty. 

As a professional Licensed Fly-Fishing Guide (R.E.F.F.I.S and THETA Accredited), I have become well-known and respected throughout the country.

I have fished competitively in South Africa (Gold & Silver Medallist) for many years obtaining Provincial Colours and reaching Protea Trials a

number of times. I have developed my own unique guiding methods, all aimed at syncing the body and mind in preparation for competing

against the best. I believe that my guiding service not only develops physical strength, but also the mental stamina required to compete at the

highest levels of the game. At The Vaal Guides, I keep up with the latest techniques and methodologies, and consistently push my clients to their

potential.
