Getaway Guide to Fly-fishing in South Africa
The aim of this book is to provide 'a simple no nonsense nuts and bolts guide to help you catch more trout'. It takes a rationalised approach to fly selection and features a carefully chosen core of highly effective contemporary fly patterns. The main emphasis of the book focuses on trout location and fly presentation in both stillwaters and rivers -- and captures the very essence of successful fly-fishing in this country. Using a distillation of the latest American and European techniques, topics include: tips on finding good affordable trout fishing, trouble shooting casting faults, float tubing tactics, hunting trophy trout and advanced methods for catching highly educated fish. Although aimed primarily at the intermediate angler with some fly fishing experience, the straightforward style of the text also makes it accessible to the newcomer to the sport. Even experienced anglers will find fresh and effective ideas in this guide.
