Lauded for its excellent fly-fishing and unique climate, Dullstroom has long been a favourite among anglers both beginner and professional. Test your abilities at the 14th annual Elandskloof Trout Festival and Fly-fishing Competition taking place on 27 and 28 September 2019.
Elandskloof Trout Farm
Elandskloof features 11 fully stocked damns varying in size from smaller water bodies to around 8 hectares. Prepare for a spectacular day out on the water surrounded by like-minded individuals. The event kicks off on Friday 27 September at 18:00 with Registration and a warming soup and mingling session. Saturday promises to be an early-bird event with another Registration taking place at 04:30, Competition talk at 05:00 and the First Session from 05:30 – 08:00. The Second Session will begin at 08:30 and continue up to 11:00.
Following a quick break there will be a Brunch at 11:30 for competitors and supporters / spectators (at a cost of R60 for non-participants). Following a leisurely meal the festival recommences at 13:00 with the Third Session followed by the final Fourth Session of the day from 15:30 – 17:00.
After what we’re sure will feel like a lifetime, the Prize Giving Dinner will begin at 19:00 where winners of the Adult and Junior competition will be announced. The 3-course dinner is included in entry fees for participants and supporters may purchase tickets at a cost of R150 per person.
Adults – R750 per person
