Little rapid runner

In conversation with Tourette Fishing’s Keith Clover – the evolution from fly-fishing guide to desk jockey. And back again… I first met Keith in July of 2006. The trip was a recce mission to suss the possibilities of running it as one of Tourette’s offerings. The plan was fairly simple: Use an inflatable raft to […]

Sudan recaps

Instead of a daily report I’ll post little snapshots of awesome moments exploring this incredible place with Stu Harley, Nicola Vitali and Johan Brits. Some might involve fish, others climbs or stories told by others.  Ill also do posts based around flies.  Why they worked, the theory behind colour and movement (many a thanks owed […]

Lesotho, Lesotho, Lesotho…How much more can we talk about the fishing in that country? I say: “Plenty more!”; because it is so damn good – as in best in the world? I really believe that the river fishing is unmatched in South Africa (and on a par with the best in the world), but read […]

Lesotho Vid Teaser

Right now, I’m somewhere close to here… The Tourette camps are more central and south to our location and although we won’t get the yellowfish, the scenery will be similar. Hope you’re not too jealous!
