WPFFA is involved with and creates loads of events for its members.

We have general calendars for Youth, Seniors, Ladies, Masters, and Disability with the association, national and international events – this is updated throughout the year.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and lockdown regulations, we have not had many events. We will update these calendars shortly. 

If you’d like to get involved or would like to sponsor us, feel free to get in touch.

On 6 November 2021, Duggie Wessels – the WPFFA Disability Coordinator, organised a Wheelchair Disabled Fly Fishing Event at Le Ferme. It was a great turnout, as he only had two to three weeks to organise this event. There were 10 disabled anglers. Below are some photos of the event. 

From 6 – 9 October 2021, WPFFA successfully hosted the SAFFA Youth Nationals 2021 in Ceres, Western Cape. Overall, 287 fish were caught and safely released. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank The Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport for their support and funding. We’d also like to thank the sponsors from the event which included Amazing Pies and X-Factor Angling.
