North of the Vaal there are very few opportunities for ordinary folks to fly fish for trout in a pristine stream for a reasonable price. Why not try the beautiful Sabie River on Saturday 28th July? The Sabie Trout Angling Club is organising the Sabie Trout Challenge on that day. The club controls 7 km of this pretty stream which has plenty of holding water and is well stocked. As may be seen from the photos it is flowing particularly well in July. In addition to trout the river also has a healthy population of Incomati chiselmouth which often take the fly.

The day starts at Ligna Lodge outside Sabie village and the cost of the day including the breakfast is only R150 for members and R250 for non-members.
