Fly Fisherman and Guide
FRED STEYNBERG has been a professional fly fishing guide for more than 20 years and is considered one of the most experienced guides in South Africa. Most of his time has been spent on the clear mountain rivers of Rhodes which boasts over 300 km’s of Africa’s most pristine wild trout waters. The popular smallmouth yellowfish share these untainted waters with the trout. Specializing in river fly fishing, Fred has developed an astounding knowledge of the trout and yellowfish and their habitat in this area. Fred also has trout fishing experience in Sweden, Argentina, Patagonia and New Zealand where he has spent many months stalking large brown trout.
Having developed a passion for fishing to any salt water quarry that would take an imitated fly pattern, Fred has also facilitated, guided and hosted trips to various world class salt water destinations such as Mozambique, Cuba, Angola, Mexico, Tanzania and the Seychelles over the last 15 years and has a vast knowledge of species that teem the waters of these tropical paradises.
