Lesotho, orange river and Seychelles trips.
Fred Steynberg of ‘Linecasters’ has been fly fishing for 25 years, much of this time spent on the clear mountain rivers of Lesotho and Rhodes (Eastern Cape, South Africa) targeting trout and small-mouth yellowfish. Fred guides numerous trips within the most favoured seasons on the Vanderkloof dam on the great Orange River system, South Africa, for smallmouth and the magical, indigenous largemouth yellowfish. Fred sets up and guides annual trips to unforgettable, exotic destinations such as Zambia and Mozambique for tiger fish, Angola targeting giant tarpon and giant threadfin, to Seychelles’ outer islands for bonefish, triggerfish, bumphead parrotfish, GT’s, to mention some of the most coveted species on the Linecasters calender.
Fred has over time established himself as one of the most experienced fly fishing guides in Southern Africa and has an impressive and expansive knowledge of both salt and fresh water fly fishing species and their habitats. Fred prides himself on his ability to educate and tutor clients thus equipping them to catch their dream specimen on fly.
