We have been searching for a suitable Nile perch fly fishing fishery for almost a decade. In January 2018 we led the first of two exploratory trips to what we consider to be one of the last remaining, ecologically intact, Sahelo-Sudanian ecosystems/ West African savannah habitats habitats – through which the Faro River flows. The discovery and subsequent collaborations that we have established with key concession owners, Dr Koen Maes and Xavier Vannier, encompassing a geographically special 120km section of Faro River, bordering the Faro National Park, allows us to offer a world class and unique fly fishing product to adventurous anglers. The combination of pristine riverine and terrestrial ecosystems make this area one of the last relatively untransformed representations of Sahelo-Sudanian ecosystems/ West African savannah habitats left on the planet. The Faro Fly Fishing product is now adding incredible value to the area by helping to ensure sustainable and well-managed fly fishing is able to contribute significant funds towards conservation, anti-poaching strategies in the area and building towards the long-term goal to facilitate and coordinate a unified and all-encompassing Faro River Basin conservation plan. The commencement of the revitalisation of the Cameroonian-registered NGO, the Faro Conservation Association (AFC) in 2019 is one of the first steps to achieving this goal.
