Competitions generally target trout in rivers and dams, but have, on occasion, included native species such as yellow fish.
All competitions follow modified international fly fishing competition rules set by FIPS - you can also see all the latest news and event information on their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/FIPSed1954.
WPFFA believes that all our members should have access to the necessary education to strengthen their skills. We have held several workshops and events which assist in this process.
During the last couple of years, we’ve focused on the Youth division and this has been a great success. Regular training and practice sessions are scheduled for our Youth members. Tim Rolston has been instrumental in these training sessions and we try and acquire his wonderful skills every year with at least one session of casting for the Youth Team.
We also regularly have practice session in the Cape Piscatorial Society’s Waters, by Du Toit’s Kloof as well as at the Lourensford river and Bluegum dam.
Our Seniors are very involved with the Youth Training and regularly assists the younger anglers teaching them various techniques and methods to enhance their skills.
We have several events during the year to tackle this very important area within our association. Our main focus for the last year as well as within the new year will be to have more of our Social Disability Events, which is organized by Duggie Wessels. These events have different formats and has been so well received by everyone. Below are some pictures and details of the past ones.
We also, each year, in conjunction with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sports, Boland Fly Fishing and The Cape Piscatorial Society help with the annual River Clean Up”, targeting the rivers in the Limietberg. Frequented by irresponsible public and their littering it had left the poor river in a poor state.
