Hero shots and hero stories are a dime a dozen, so to mix it up we asked a few talented anglers to tell us about the most memorable fish they have lost. Permit curses, 11th round poon technical knockouts, fighting Omani GTs in underpants… with contributions from Oliver White, Conrad Botes, Peter Grylls, Ewan Andre Naude, Jazz Kuschke and Leonard Flemming, The Chronicles of Loss are sweet tales of torture any angler can relate to.

Then we’ve got “Could Haves Don’t Count”, Jazz Kuschke’s perspective-laden piece on fishing with friends when you can; “The Epiphany”, Nick Ferreira’s account of a Lesotho trip and a personal journey. Then Richard Wale – the Tigerking from – shows us how he and the Mavungana Flyfishing crew have cracked the code with topwater tigers at Pongola, while New Zealand saltwater fly-fishing guide Gian Booysen lifts the skirts on the kingies/yellowtail of North Island in “The Ray Riders of Tauranga”. There’s a High Fives with independent Eastern Cape guide Brenton Freeman, a Lifer with bamboo rod maker Stephen Dugmore, the new Scott Wave rod reviewed by Ewan Naude, our Wish List Fish is the southern saratoga, the INEOS Grenadier shoots up our 4×4 wish list, the Beats come from our new content guy Matt Kennedy, plus there’s Bring Your Own Rod events with Scientific Anglers, forest whisky from Glenmorangie, Nike trout sneakers and a whole lot more.
