St Lucia / Cape Vidal Saltwater Fly Fishing
The ultimate fly fishing experience – fishing the surf zone at Cape Vidal! We will travel to Cape Vidal via the iSimangaliso Wetland Park with the chance of spotting wildlife including buffalo, rhino and leopard. Once at Cape Vidal, for those who are brave enough to fish from the rocks in search of the big KING FISH (THE JACK), be prepared to get WET as you will be pounded by waves! Fishing the beaches is much easier but the fish are generally smaller.
Our recommendation is: 8/9-weight rod with DI.7 sinking line on a good saltwater reel with lots of backing. This rig should be adequate to target the bigger fish. For the smaller fish, we recommend that a 5 weight or upwards with sinking line would be adequate.
Variety of flies (big AND small). Colours: red/white, chartreuse, black/red, orange, pink/white
We use sinking lines because they are more versatile as they are thin and cut through the air more easily, and also because they are less affected by wind – remember the wind is always blowing at the coast. Wave action also has less effect on these sinking lines.
