The South African Fly Fishing Association functions as the co-ordinating body for various Member Associations representing both recreational and competitive fly anglers thus encouraging development in fly fishing be it at National, Provincial and learner level.

SAFFA invites anglers to become part of the organised sport structure by offering participation in various tournaments and development workshops, and through our affiliation to International bodies such as fips-Mouche. SAFFA therefore offers a platform through which we can reach out and share skills to enable growth in the fly fishing community.

On the competitive side, SAFFA  oversees the hosting of the annual National Championships for Senior, Women & Youth anglers, as well as the National Selection process for team representatives to World & Commonwealth Championships.

We have brown and rainbow trout in our systems as well as the sought-after indigenous yellows and tiger fish.


SAFFA is constituted as a non-profit organisation and is managed by the Chairpersons of the affiliated Provinces and an elected Management Committee. This committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting and consists of the President; the Vice President; the Secretary; and the Treasurer of the Association.
