The damming of the Mooi River back in 2011 and the subsequent addition of a fish barrier, has created a stunning stretch of tailwater, throwing together a unique collection of fish species and an irresistible opportunity for any keen fly fisherman. The indigenous Natal Yellowfish or Scaly was joined by Brown Trout when they were stocked into the river in the late 1800's. They were later joined by Smallmouth Bass when they too were rather oddly introduced. The construction of the dam dislodged the surrounding Rainbow Trout and Largemouth Bass, throwing all five species together, creating a Royal Flush. The Wildfly team can't resist a challenge when it's thrown at them and vie to see who will be the first to catch all five species, on the fly in one day's fishing on the River Mooi.
