FLY FISHING

Kenya, with such diverse environments, is a superb country to enjoy fly fishing. Cast your carefully chosen fly into the crystal clear waters in lakes at 3000 meters above sea level, on Mt Kenya or in the Aberdare’s National Park, or into its rivers in the Montane Forests on Mt Kenya’s lower slopes. The setting of such incredible fly fishing is breathtaking, views as far as the eye can see and flora and fauna endemic to the area. There is also the chance to see wildlife recovering from the edge of extinction. We have exclusive access to the Ragati Conservation area in one of Mt Kenya’s Montane forests. This conservation area protects the very rare Bongo.

Mt Kenya’s Lakes and Rivers hold Rainbow and Brown trout of varying sizes. Our record catch to date is approx. 4 lb on the Ragati River. The average catch at Lake Alice, at 3000 meters, is 2.5 lb. Trout are not indigenous to Kenya; however they have thrived in the cold waters at high altitude. Several fisheries surrounding Mt Kenya and the Aberdare’s produce fingerlings and we work in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service and Kenya Fishers department to stock the lakes and rivers to keep trout numbers up.

Top off an unforgettable experience with a trip to on the Kenya coast where, in between relaxing you can enjoy deep sea fishing, with the chance to catch Marlin, Sailfish and Tuna, some of which can be done on the fly. Our highly experienced and internationally qualified guides will provide the trip of a life time, tailor made to suit you.
