For a destination where every fish appears to be a trophy (even if the relative 'slinny' water of the Barrancoso river), check out this neat little highlights clip of Jurassic Lake (aka Lake Strobel in Argentina) from Mavungana Flyfishing. Keep an eye out for an upcoming Jurassic Lake story in issue 9 (May/June).
THERE ARE A FEW THINGS WE LIKE about the sound of Austin, Texas. For one, Jako Lucas, aka Capt. Jack, aka Lego-stepper extraordinaire just moved there (read more about him in issue 2). Secondly, they just signed Christiaan Pretorius, another top South African guide, as an ambassador (he featured a High 5s here). Last, but [...]
KOB AND LEERVIS – we chase them like mad in the Western Cape, but truth be told we have some serious inferiority complex over the fish that are caught in the Eastern Cape and more specifically the Transkei/Wild Coast. So, when I started seeing Nqabara Eco River Lodge pop up in my Facebook feed [...]
FRESH from the mercurial Rolf Nylinder is this video that he not only shot, but also wrote the music too as part of what he calls his wannabee musician project, The Mosvold Hotel. Enjoy.

If you like trout, watch it. If you don't like trout, but like [...]
THIS WEEK at The Mission: We checked out this video by Aussie Fly Fisher Josh Hutchins chasing three trout species in Oz. Who knew they had Brookies? We loved The Hidden, the latest from the guys at Blue Halo. We enjoyed this clip of new ANC president (and soon to be South Africa's president) Cyril [...]
We caught up with Tom Lewin of Frontier Fly Fishing on a special catch he made on the Vaal recently. THE MISSION (TM): Mr Lewin, we believe you recently made a remarkable catch? TOM LEWIN (TL): Yes, it was a huge tarpon of Costa Rica, the biggest fish I have ever... TM: Incorrect. We’re [...]
