Wheelchair Fly Fishing Challenge 25 May 2019

On 25 May 2019, WPFFA hosted a Wheelchair Challenge (the first of its kind in RSA) where we challenged able bodied fly fisherment to fly fish in a wheelchair. The aim was for them to experience the challenges wheelchair bound anglers face when fly fishing. It was a tremendous success. Thank you to Duggie Wessels, our Disability co-ordinator for organising this amazing eye-opening event.
