The Karoo, in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa is classed as arid, semi-desert, which means that people don’t associate it with fly fishing. But even though the Karoo is always imagined as semi-desert, it is far more diverse than that. Somerset East has five biomes within 20 km of the town. These biomes include Savannah, Grassland, Nama Karoo, Thicket, and Forest. The Boschberg Mountain that hugs the town also creates a micro-climate, which, under normal circumstances, provides us with an average of 30 inches of rain each year. In good rainy seasons, fifteen waterfalls can be seen from the town on the Boschberg Mountain.
