Verlorenkloof Youth Development Project
The relationship between Gauteng North Fly Fishing, Jacaranda Fly Fishing and Verlorenkloof Estate began over a decade ago. The initial programme was active from 2011 to 2016. More recently in 2021 the programme was revived and is now in full swing again. On an annual basis there are five clinics scheduled that aim to educate and upskill the local youth from the surrounding communities in the sport of fly fishing and the importance of conservation of the environment. Students from a local community are taught how to fly cast, tie knots, tie their own flies and most importantly how to approach the water correctly to catch fish.
The current group of students are progressing really well and are showing a real passion for the sport. We are really excited to see how this project and group of youngsters is are going to develop in the future.
