Join the Club

The Natal Fly Fishers Club was formed in 1972 and has a rich history in South African fly fishing. Many of the sport's most well known names have at some point in some way been affiliated to the club and many were in fact founding members.

Former club chairamn, Jim Read  is the President of the Club and Tom Sutcliffe is a founder of the club and the Honorary Vice-President. The late Hugh Huntley and his close friends Eddie Combes and  Bill Duckworth - after whom the "DDD" was named - are just a few of flyfishing's great characters who have helped build the club over the years.

Perhaps most significant to the Club, is the generosity of the good farming folk who allow our members access to their superb fly fishing waters. We have in the Natal Midlands 17 stretches of river water in which there are trout, yellows and bass. Also 32 dams stocked with trout and 8 dams with bass.

Members are supplied with a full set of very comprehensive maps, access to a 24 hour booking service and access to member information on this site.

Newsletters are produced regularly, we meet casually on the last Monday evening of every month at Crossways in Hilton,  and  ad-hoc social functionsand fly fishing clinics are organised from time to time.

After paying the annual subscriptions, members can fish as often as they like without incurring any further rod fees for the day.
