Now wouldn’t that be the ultimate reward on day two of your conference or corporate teambuilding day?
At Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa this is not unheard of. Conference packages at this luxury lodge in The Cradle of Humankind goes hand in hand with the fly-fishing season. With six fly fishing dams on the property, one would be crazy not to make the most of this opportunity which only lasts until August when winter hopefully departs.
Under the expert guidance of Wayne Sinclair from Sundown Adventures, conference delegates learn the art of tying flies while a whiskey ambassador presents a variety of quality whiskies. He will further teach you to cast just far enough to reel in the perfect catch for your participation in the trout cook off and wine pairing event.
CLASSIC FLY FISHING EXPERIENCE
Fly-fishing activities can be custom-made to your group size and requirements, but find below some guidelines to a brilliant day out. Spa treatments can be added to this life style package. A fly-fishing guide will instruct guests on the techniques required for fly-fishing.
These include how to:
1) cast and retrieve a fly 2) select a fly by understanding the life cycle of aquatic insects. Teams will then put their new skills to the test when they compete against each other in the “casting challenges”. Teams then have an opportunity to try catch a fish.

TROUT COOK OFF AND WINE PAIRING
Enjoy a demonstration on how to prepare and cook a trout. A presentation during which fine wines should ideally be paired with the fish (based on the way it has been prepared). The teams then compete against each other by trying to prepare and cook the best fish.
