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.

The Honourable Mr Justice Mark Kumleben is the President of the Club and Tom Sutcliffe and Eddie Combes are founders of the club and the Honorary Vice-Presidents. The late Hugh Huntley and his close friend 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 11 stretches of river water in which there are trout, yellows and bass. Also 30 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 quarterly and although we do not have social functions, 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.
