PART 9 in a 12 part series of blogs where we look at the Christmas Wishlists of The Mission/Feathers & Fluoro team.
Each list features three categories: Stocking Filler (cheap and cheerful), Sublime (a great piece of gear in the mid to high price range) and Ridiculous (what Peter Thiel wants, Peter Thiel gets).

I friggen hate air travel when fishing and the fear of having my gear not rock up is something that terrifies me. Even though most of the venues have gear I really don’t dig wearing another guys jocks (except Peter Coetzee’s). The obvious solution would be to own my own Gulfstream with a pilot at my beck and call. In fact I would own multiple aircraft in my fleet to suit specific conditions such as landing on a gravel strip in the Selous game reserve.
I love fishing in Africa and a dream would be to fish the entire continent with unlimited time and budget. From hunting the Kimberlyensis-like barbs in Angola to living in Maputoland for as long as it takes to catch a 1m plus GT in South Africa. I would spend weeks in the Olifants River gorge (Western Cape) and explore remote beaches in Mozambique.
