Dullstroom dam trout fishing     

Mafungana Flyfishing are hosting a unique charity event in Dullstroom in Mpumalanga on the 7th July 2012. This competition will be limited to 50 anglers who will be overseen, guided and marshalled by well-known Mafungana guides, competing on Walkerson Dams. The winner may not be the best angler on the water and may not have caught the heaviest fish: luck will play a part and the winner will be the angler who catches the longest fish, measured from nose to the fork of the tail! One Fly Competition Details and Invitation

An additional element of fun that will level the playing field is the ‘One Fly’ handicap. Each fly-fisherman will be presented by a pre-tied and tested mystery fly for the day’s fishing. Fishermen who lose a fly will be permitted to ‘buy back’ additional flies. The prize-giving will take place during a gala dinner at Walkersons Hotel on Saturday night. There will be prizes galore as well as an impressive registration gift, an auction, and raffle items. The ultimate prize is an all-inclusive, 3 night, tiger-fishing break on Pongloa Dam guided by Jonathan Boulton.

The beneficiary of this charity event will be the units on the front line of the anti rhino poaching battle in the Kruger National Park. In 2011, 248 rhino were butchered for their horns and in 2012 it is feared there will be a dramatic increase in this tally. A worthy cause indeed, and good reason to come to Dullstroom for a great week-end in the chilly highlands of Mpumalanga. This date also co-insides with the Dullstroom Winter Festival: the whole family can enjoy live music shows, Xmas in July fare at the various restaurants and a host of other activities.

Flyfishing in DullstroomFLYFISHING IN RIVERS CLOSE TO DULLSTROOM:

Winter has finally arrived in the Mpumalanga Highlands, just in time for the shortest day on the 21st June! Fly-fishing enthusiasts who may have eschewed the warmer months have dusted off their rod cases and are heading to the trout dams and rivers in the Dullstroom area – this is borne out by the local reservations offices who report record bookings for the upcoming period! School holidays get underway now and family houses are well booked: the clever father who wants to combine his love of the sport with a family holiday acceptable to even the most critical of partners, will be on the look out for a venue offering the magic combination of an outstanding fishing experience coupled with excellent accommodation. It was this factor that was picked up on in a recent review of Stonecutters Lodge conducted by ‘Flyloops’ Review by Pieter Snyders "The perfect luxury break-away from the city….I found the venue has a perfect balance between good fishing and comfortable accommodation.” In the pursuit of his chosen sport the fly-fisherman must consider the needs of the family or partner: at many destinations the fishing waters are at a distance from the accommodation. At Stonecutters this is not the case, as the dams and 3 kilometers of Dorps river are just a short stroll from the cottages. In summary the fishing review concluded “ …the dams and river offer good variety that will keep you busy for hours. The dams and river are well maintained with a good stocking program and you will never be disappointed
