Fly Fishing in Durban Harbour

Durban, KwaZulu-Natal - Saltwater Fishing Report

We left Wilson's Wharf at around 09h00 for a quick 3 hour fly fishing session round the bay with 5wt rods looking for little Kingfish. I know it is actually too early in the season but worth a look anyway.

It was awesome in the bay with little wind and overcast; the tide had just turned and was starting to come in over the sand banks.

We looked around at a few spots and there was very little mullet activity and we looked around at a few spots not finding anything.

So we changed down to 4lb leaders and tiny flies and eventually found some little Yellow Fin (AKA Black Tip) King Fish. They were in perfect condition and cute.
