GNFFA Family
Fundraising Day
29 July 2023



We held a family fundraising day at Tranquil Fly Fishing just east of Pretoria on Saturday 29 July.

The day was open to anyone in the region that was keen to find out more about the sport and wanting to improve their stillwater fly fishing skills. It was great to see such a diverse group of youngsters and adults who participated in the clinic. Members from our province were on hand to meet everyone and share thei
r knowledge. From basic casting lessons to 'on the shoulder' guiding on the water for the more experienced anglers, everyone took something away from the day. 

For those of you who may be keen to join one of these events in future, keep an eye out on our social media platforms for upcoming events. 

Youth Development
Tour to Spain

April 2023

Spain Tour.JPG

Tour Highlights:

Three of our junior members, Ruben Lambrechts, Daniel van Wyk and Roarke Goosen, were part of the South African Youth Fly Fishing Development Team that participated in a fly fishing tour to Spain. They attended an intensive five day clinic with Pablo Castro Pinos and David Garcia Ferreras, two of the worlds best fly anglers who have both achieved global success on many occasions at the World Fly Fishing Championships. 

They learnt advanced euro nymphing and dry fly fishing skills. It is very exciting
to see our group of junior anglers developing into amazing fly anglers.

Lots of exciting things to come from these boys!
