A month or so back saw four South African fly fishers – Brent Flack Davidson, Ray Fletcher, Simon Stacey and Richard Stacey – tackling the Silver Kings on the fabled waters of the Florida Keys. Good to see the Saffas mixing it with these beasts! These fish leave big holes in the water – just watch the video to see what I mean!
