FLYFISHING SA RIVERS AND LAKES
The magic of South African fly-fishing lies in its variety. There can be few other places in the world where a fly-rodder can tussle shad in foaming white surf, stalk perch between estuarine mangrove roots, fish for yellowfish on a wild river, or float-tube a serene mountain lake searching for heavy stillwater trout. Fly-fishing South Africa's rivers, lakes and surf features some of the common fish and lesser-known species found in different areas, and the tackle, flies and tactics needed to capture them. The author deals extensively with subjects such as the weather and seasons, specialist tactics, water selection, boating and taking fish in difficult conditions. A short chapter covers conservation and the future of fly-fishing in South Africa, while useful hints and tips provide ideas on improving fly-fishing efficiency.
