Cape Piscatorial Society

WPFFA doesn’t control water of its own. Instead it makes extensive use of the rivers and dams controlled by the Cape Piscatorial Society.

The Cape Piscatorial Society (or CPS as it is known) is South Africa’s oldest fly fishing society and is based in Cape Town. WPFFA and the CPS have a long-standing relationship together in promoting the sport of fly fishing in the Western Cape.

Anybody can become a member of the CPS or pay for a day permit. For further details go to the CPS website: www.piscator.co.za

Cape Nature

Cape Nature (officially the Western Cape Nature Conservation Board) is a governmental organization responsible for maintaining wilderness areas and public nature reserves in Western Cape Province, South Africa.

In order to access the waters under the control of the CPS, anglers are required to have a ‘Wild Card’, which can be obtained from Cape Nature as well as a freshwater fishing license. As an alternative to a year long ‘wild card’, day permits are available from the CPS.

Licenses are available from Cape Nature offices in Mowbray and Bellville as well as from StreamX in Milnerton and Fred Tucker Agencies in the Southern Suburbs.
