Fly fishing has always been a hit and miss affair along the Natal coastline for me, none more so visible since moving back here in 2012. 150 km either way from Durban (Commonly known now as DIRTBIN!!) isn't the friendliest for fly fisherman to be honest. Yes we have a plethora of rocky outcrops strewn along the coastline but are only accessible during low tides which gives us a very short window in the day to go chuck some fluff around. Coupled with that, the constant battering by heavy waves turns many of our beaches too steep to cast from. Practically 80% of our river estuaries are silted up and only open and run into the ocean during heavy rains inland so there is very little chance of tidal fish moving in and out of them regularly.
