    Hi, you are welcome to add Ski-inn Riverhouse to your list of fishing destinations on the Vaal.

    Our house is booked through Airbnb and sleeps 14 people. It’s right on the riverbank and also has a slipway for you to launch a boat and fish the Vals River.

    Great for family and friend gatherings.

      Hi Zoe,

      Ok will do! We haven’t heard of you guys before but will add you soon. I’ll let you know when it’s on the Vaal River fishing spots page.
