TGCSA 4 STAR
South Africa is a fisherman's paradise, all aspects of angling can be catered for. I will update this section weekly and keep adding information- Please feel free to contribute, I would like some photos of fish caught in the Umkomaas and Scottburgh area. CompanyWebmaster and also send any angling links to me which you would like included on this site.
Fresh water aspects of angling are covered by Trout fishing, in rivers, streams, and dams. What better way to spend a day than fly fishing in the Drakensberg mountains? Carp fishing is a major interest in South Africa with ideal conditions for them to grow to a huge size. Bass fishing is a popular event with many competitions available. There are a lot of Barbel (Catfish) available to catch.
Salt water angling in South Africa is amongst the best in the world, for the purpose of this website I will concentrate on angling which is easily accessed from Umkomaas guest house. This includes the coast line North and South of Durban. We are situated on the Kwazulu Natal South coast approximately 30 minutes from Durban.

I will also include fish species and techniques to catch them.
