LeRoy Botha is a rare talent but what I like most about Leroy is that he is so understated. Unlike the social media warriors in the fly fishing industry that love to blow their own vuvuzelas, LeRoy is humble and down to earth considering his abilities. Most people will be familiar with his wizardry behind the flytying vice but few may have seen his skill as an artist. When I saw one of the sketches that LeRoy had done I knew that I had to commission a Largemouth Yellowfish. I’m thrilled with the end result and it’s taken pride of place in my fishing room.
