A place of myth & mystery
Vaal Hackle – Vredefort Dome
Fly fishing for yellowfish on the Vaal River is not always about landing a big number of fish. Driving that extra 20km out of town there are very special places one can visit and truly appreciate the spectacular settings in the heart of the Vredefort Dome world heritage site. Vaal Hackle is just such a place. Mind-blowing beautiful scenery coupled with a fantastic stretch of river.
Far from the madding crowd
Rivershade Cottage - Thabela Thabeng
Every now and then one doesn’t mind driving just a little further in order to avoid the ever increasing number of fisherman one usually finds at the venues just below the barrage. And if it is peace and tranquillity coupled with prime yellowfish water in a rustic yet comfortable setting one is after then Rivershade Cottage just might be what you are looking for.
Eendekuil just got better!
For many years Eendekuil just outside Parys has been a favourite of many yellowfish anglers. With its many islands and huge selection of runs, glides and pools this venue offers the greatest variety of water testing your skills against smallmouth & largemouth yellowfish.
The "cottage" as it is known is beautifully set in the main garden overlooking the river.
- The spacious cottage sleeps 4 comfortably and offers:
- A single bedroom with two single beds.
- A lounge with two sleeper couches.
- Fully equipped kitchen (Stove, Microwave, Fridge, all cutlery and utensils etc.)
- Modern bathroom.
- Outside Braai area.
- Beautiful river view.
