Our Advantage

Our Advantage

When you buy ScientificFly’s products you don’t just deal with the product on the store shelf, you deal with a product that came a long way in order to satisfy not only the end user but also the retailers. To us it is not only important to have a good quality product, it is equally important that our products are presentable to the eye of the consumer, easily identifiable, informative and affordable:

Who We Are

Who We Are

ScientificFly was founded by Arno Laubscher in 2001. His mission was, and still is, to develop high quality fishing products to be distributed to fishermen and women via retail stores not only in South Africa but across the globe. Arno’s fly fishing experience stretches back to the middle 1980’s where he started fly fishing in Northern Kwazulu Natal, South Africa at the age of 12.
