Whether you’re a professional, an amateur or just someone who likes the idea of getting dressed up and holding a fly rod on the banks of a pristine trout dam, the Dullstroom Ladies Fly Fishing Festival is a wonderfully challenging and fun weekend. Dullstroom Reservations will find anyone the perfect accommodation to suit their exact needs in around this picturesque village.
You could make it a girls weekend away, bring your family or partner along for moral support or just enjoy the opportunity to travel alone and concentrate on your fishing – with so many local accommodation options, Dullstroom Reservations will supply you with the prefect options according to any budget, location or group size.
This year marks the 9th annual Dullstroom Ladies Fly Fishing Festival and it is fully subscribed with many regulars booking their spots for the next one as soon as possible. The arrival registration and welcome will take place at the Coachman on Friday evening (1st September) and this jovial gathering always sets the tone for an amazing fun filled weekend. Up before the sun on both Saturday and Sunday, the ladies are sent off to a selection of different local waters to battle each other (and the cold) and make the most of each fishing session.
Once all the rods are out of the water and the catches have all been recorded, the ladies will all gather at Walkersons Hotel for a delicious Sunday lunch and prize giving. The fact that the ‘Best Dressed Team’ is one of the most coveted prizes keeps in line with the entire weekends fun vibe as well as a chance for competitors to show off their creative sides.
The weekend is full of fun and serious fishing but is also a huge supporter of local charities. With loyal sponsors the goodie bags and prizes are an event on their own, but the sense of community and giving back is also a wonderful theme that is woven into the fabric of Dullstrooms only ladies fishing competition.
What a great way to spend a weekend, bonding with friends, both old and new, enjoying the best of the picturesque highlands countryside, and not having to worry about your accommodation as Dullstroom Reservations will have placed you in the perfect place to lie your sleepy head.
