Jungle Fever – Gabon on the Fly

And so it begins… Over the last couple weeks, many of us have opened Facebook or Instagram to soon find ourselves open mouthed and drooling over the images of the fishery in and around Tourette Fishing’s Sette Cama Camp in Gabon, mainly portrayed through the incredible lens work of TF Head Guide Mark Murray… This […]

Redtube – Porn is Good

If there was one fish and fishery I wish we had here in SA, or that I at least had access to more, it would be shallow water Redfish on fly… Ever since I first saw a picture of a Redfish, in an old Abu Garcia advert in an old BASSMASTER magazine when I was […]
