Sundowner Adventures presents adults & children with an opportunity to try a new adventure activity in a safe and secure environment. This is a great way to learn all about the skills and techniques to enjoy fly fishing. It's a fun adventure for individuals, couples and families.
Fly-fishing is fun, clean (no grubby bait!) outdoor adventure in the open air. It is good exercise but you don't a high fitness level. The equipment and flies are available for hire, however you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.
This is a group activity but we limit the size to a max of 6 people. Experienced guides will patiently teach you the basic skills required for fly fishing and to assist with practical fishing guidance. The teaching is done in a fun and easy to understand manner. We adhere to strict COVID protocols with sanitizing of hands, rental fishing equipment and social distancing. It's outdoors in the open air. Children should ideally be a minimum of 10 years old to join the group lesson. Parents with younger kids are welcome to book a private clinic.
We believe in keeping the sport environmentally friendly so all fish caught must be released (And we teach guests the proper techniques required for correctly releasing the fish so that they do not get injured). The dams have Trout, Bass, Carp, Kurper and Cat fish.
Guests selecting the lesson are able to continue fishing on on the dams and with rented equipment for the rest of the day.
Lesson are hosted at Lanseria Country Estate on Saturday or Sundays from 8:00-9:30am. Enquire about additional available days during school holidays.

Loved the fly fishing introduction that we did with Sundowner at Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa with my boys. A perfect way to spend the day fishing. Great environment and also loved learning from the knowledgeable staff there. Perfect place to learn and to enjoy something special with my boys too.
