Until now it has been email conversations and finalising the dates. Avers has had to bail because of MBA – poor lad – and we’re still waiting for Weavs to give a yay or nay.

Rex and I, however, are definitely going. This trip has been 10 years in the making. Rex has been needling me since our university days to head over the Dragon’s Back into the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

At last I’m going.

Over the next weeks I’ll be exploring gear, flies and ideas that comes with an extended on-foot fly fishing trip.

We’ll be slack-packing, using two local Basothos and their trusty donkeys. I’m really not overly keen to carry a 23kg backpack for ten days!
