Waters & words : a celebration of flyfishing

The Trout Streams of KwaZulu Natal

Each of these pdf documents is a collection of maps, stories, history and book excerpts and other useful information about each of the streams mentioned.  The documents are being updated and improved regularly, and with the help of fellow fly-fishing enthusiasts who are willing to share what we have here in KZN, more streams will be added in future.

For each stream I attempt to have:

  • A link to the extensive pdf document
  • A gallery of Trout caught in that stream
  • A photo gallery of the stream

I hope that this resource will prove valuable to any flyfisher wanting to immerse him or herself in everything to do with the stream they are planning to fish.

These documents are for private use, and may not be sold or distributed for commercial gain.
