So I’ve had a bunch of short clips sitting on my externals. I didn’t quite know what to do with them, but, after 2 hard drive crashes I figured I better do something. Heres a random 100 seconds from all over featuring some of my favourite people.
Friend and accomplished fly fisherman Graeme Field of Liquid Horizon has put together a DIY trip to Farquhar next year April. I was hoping to go but can’t get leave – I’ve already used up too much chasing fish 🙂 The trip has been advertised for this week only and already half the slots have been taken. […]
Guide’s don’t always live the dream – long, hots day watching other guys catching (or not catching) the fish. But when they get a day off, they tend to have it wired.

We finished dinner and the guys settled down with a few beers on the […]

It started with a call from Conrad Botes. Then another call, then another. Then Conrad called again. I have 10 minutes to decide. My internal dialogue reminded me of my move that I was in the middle of, the house transfer i was awaiting, and the severe work stress I was under, not to mention […]
Seems Pete and I got dealt similar cards. While just being able to throw a fly in a fishery such as Farquhar is a treat, the stars don’t always align and you just have a tough week. The summing up of the week: A week of missed opportunities. Hosting the trip brought about its own new challenges that […]
