I recently had a look at this short film that Jannie Visser made while fishing for blacktail and wildeperd with Michael Gradidge and myself. It really got me amped for targetting these wonderful species!


With the summer season drawing to a close, I am looking forward to winter days spent fishing for this underrated quarry. Hard fighting and aggressive fly eaters, these fish don’t mind gale force North Westers or cloud and rain!
