Diamond River Outfitters | Local Guides

Diamond River Outfitters are best known for their fantastic trips geared towards targeting Large Mouth Yellowfish and Small Mouth Yellowfish. They also offer a very special trip to Groot Marico where you can target Largescale Yellowfish on fly.

Travelling not far outside of Gauteng means you can head out for a few trips a season to enjoy the fantastic local fly fishing that is just on our door step. REEL Fly Fishing first made contact with the guys from Diamond River back in mid 2019 and we knew right away that their passion and ethics were in line with ours. If you are looking to book a trip or pick their mind for a little more information then be sure to head on over to their website or drop Rob a call/mail.

Diamond River Outfitters also assists REEL Fly Fishing with long term tackle tests, product feedback and insider tips that they pickup while out on the water.

“Diamond River Outfitters is a small dedicated team, specializing in remote wilderness fly fishing camps.

We take guests off the well traveled path in style. Our guests can expect exceptional fishing, beautiful places and dedicated people.

Our mission is to create lifelong memories and preserving fertile fishing grounds.”
