  • Hi there guys,

    My father and I are 2 experienced fly fisherman looking to come to the Underberg from the 4-7th June 2018. We would love to do some fishing on the best options available. We are happy to pay for licenses of course and would love to make a contribution to the conservation projects too.

    Would you suggest staying close to the UHTFC office and proceeding with day trip excursions or something more permanent? Please let me know your thoughts!
