Awarded the South African Fly Fishing Film of the Year for 2017.
Bamba Ubuyisele, which means Catch and Release in IsiZulu, is a film about Trevor Sithole in his tribal homelands, fishing the beautiful Mooi River which flows through the Thendela Village.
Trevor is an icon in the growth of South African fly fishing, he was introduced to fly fishing through a fly fishing project that was initiated to educate local people about the brown trout that reside in the higher reaches of the Mooi River in the Kamberg Valley of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Trevor was inspired by other members in the community who took initiative in the project and it was not long before he became fully involved.
