Authentic Fishing Experiences

About Fly Dot Fish

Flydotfish is the vision and dream of master fly angler and fly tyer, Henkie Altena. A passionate pursuit of remote fisheries back up by a solid team of authentic, salt-of-the-earth guides who setup comfortable camps paired with excellent home cooked meals are the characteristic traits of any Flydotfish fishing safari.

Catching tigers on fly and art lure in the Okavango has been the signature fishing trip of Flydotfish and is complemented through the year with the Saltwater fly fishing clinic offered at Witsands on the Garden Route allowing fly fishermen to attempt the Garden Route Grand Slam – catching and releasing Grunter, Garrick and Kob on fly in one trip!

Flydotfish also offers an outstanding guided fly fishing experience for smallmouth yellowfish in the Klein Karoo on the Gourits River at Vaalhoek – a remote and pristine region offering good numbers of yellows, smallmouth bass and carp on fly.
