WHY YOU SHOULDN'T JOIN FOSAF - Federation of Southern African Flyfishers
If you believe
wilderness areas, mountain catchments and pristine
coastlines are there to be exploited, don't
If you're happy that
fresh and saltwater fish resources are not under
any pressure from pollution, erosion of streams,
over-fishing or unwise development, don't join
If you believe that
fish are an infinite resource and you should
be allowed to kill as many as you can, don't
If you think catch-and-release
is what the provincial police should do when
you're clocked doing 180kph in a 60kph zone,
don't join FOSAF.
If you already know
everything there is to know about flyfishing
and fly tying, don't join FOSAF.
But you must join FOSAF
if you believe it's worth supporting an organisation
that has, since its inception in 1986, been
speaking out loudly for flyfishers. An organisation
that has fought tenaciously for the things flyfishers
hold dear. From leading and helping win the
battle over the renowned Cape trout streams,
to the founding of the highly regarded Yellowfish
Working Group. From its fight to conserve critically endangered indigenous species, to the research
done into the zoning of trout waters that has
become a cornerstone of the National Environmental
Management Biodiversity Act (NEM:BA) debate.
We need your help - your enthusiasm - both for
fly fishing and for the fish we strive to protect.
For you to add your voice to the most powerful
voice flyfishers have, by becoming a member
of the Federation of South African Flyfishers.
By joining FOSAF. Because the more we are, the
louder that voice. Put simply, we need your
bucks to save our fish… and our fishing for
