Imagine drifting down a pristine river, fishing for fin perfect Smallmouth and Largemouth Yellowfish in abundance, dining under the stars each evening or in a 5 star remote desert lodge located in a 16000ha game farm with 24kms of exclusive river frontage while being accompanied by a highly qualified white-water guide and cohosted by an experienced Mavungana Flyfishing guide. This is without doubt some of the best river fishing for Yellowfish that Southern Africa has to offer! These trips coincide with the best times of the year and will focus on various techniques used for targeting these indigenous slabs of gold.
Arrival on Day 1 from 13h00 onwards. Settle in at the farmhouse. Meet the team and take some time to familiarize yourself with your surroundings. Discuss tactics and approach for the trip ahead. Then relax around the fire while dinner is prepared that evening. The next day will see an early rise, after packing gear and having a quick breakfast we will then head off down to the water. After a brief safety talk we will gear up and head down the river, drifting and fishing as you go. Every morning breakfast will be served at camp before heading off down the river for the day. Lunches will be served on the river and each of the three nights, camp will be set up at remote sites next to the water affording you the opportunity to fish productive water into the dark while dinner is prepared. Transport consists of inflatable rafts with two anglers to a boat. Support crew carrying camping and none fishing gear will follow us in their own inflatables. The final evening will be spent back at the farmhouse or alternatively at an additional charge one can treat themselves to a night at a Desert Lodge with all the luxuries one could ask for. Departure the following day after breakfast at 11h00.
