Tourette Fishing becomes African Waters: A renewed mission for sport fishing in Africa
Cast – Connect – Conserve
Fresh out of varsity in 2005, Keith and Rob’s brainchild, Tourette Fishing was born out of their need for adventure and desire to combine their love of African wilderness, tourism, and sport fishing. What began as a service to introduce local and international anglers to the stunning sportfishing possibilities in Africa grew into a destination scouting, product development, and professional guiding business, and now a fully-fledged conservation and community-focused company. Since the beginning, Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures has been proud to represent this incredible operation.
“As our focus has evolved, so has our name and we are excited to announce that we will now be operating as African Waters; a name that carries as much weight for us as the rivers and oceans it represents. We are still the same team of passionate fishermen and guides, just on a slightly more focused mission to develop feasible sportfishing operations in some of Africa’s most wild and remote areas. Our priority is to protect these fragile ecosystems through conservation, and projects that benefit local communities, all while working hand in hand with the regional and international conservation bodies, private landowners, national parks and government”
As part of the change Keith Rose-Innes and Murray Collins from Blue Safaris and Alphonse Fishing Co. will be joining our team. Although they will not be involved in the daily running of African Waters, we are excited about the value they bring to the organisation through an advisory and strategic role. Rosie’s and Murray’s shared commitment to fly fishing, and their passion to save vulnerable wilderness areas is perfectly aligned with African Waters’ vision and mission. We are excited to have them on board, and are confident that their involvement will be welcomed by our existing team, agents, and guests alike.
African Waters – the fish, wildlife, and communities that they support, and the fragile natural habitats that surround them are our passion, and we could not have thought of a more
fitting name to encompass all that our business stands for. We are excited to share our passion with our guests while guiding them into their fish of a lifetime, and facilitating life-changing experiences amongst fauna, flora, and communities that inhabit our beautiful continent.
