    The Feather Mechanic

    R400.00 incl VAT
    THE FEATHER MECHANIC BY GORDON VAN DER SPUY AND TIM WEGE We don’t normally stock books, but for Gordon van der Spuy we made an exception because his new book, The Feather Mechanic is a one-of-a-kind contribution to the world of fly fishing and fly tying. An expert fly tyer and instructor, in The Feather Mechanic Gordon not only tells the story of his own development in fly tying with signature flair, but he also takes the reader into the function of some of the most deadly patterns in history, so you understand why they work. That way you can forget tying by pattern, go off-piste and create your own killer flies. Accompanied by Gordon’s brilliant sketches and brilliant macro images from freshwater ecologist Christian Fry, if you are in to fly tying our merely want to be a better angler, The Feather Mechanic is an essential addition to your collection.

    Hunting Trout

    R370.00 incl VAT
    Hunting Trout by Tom Sutcliffe Back by popular demand, if you do not yet have a copy of Hunting Trout – Angles and anecdotes on trout fishing, this - the third edition of Tom Sutcliffe’s classic, published by Burnett Media with forewords by Nick Lyons and Stephen Boshoff, new illustrations, a new cover shot by Gerhard Loubscher and a new preface from Tom - is one for the collection. Hunting Trout is informative, entertaining story-telling at its best and you will come away from this book wiser, better informed and motivated to make your own stories. There’s a reason Tom is compared to the great fly fishing writers and personalities of the UK, US and elsewhere, but we should hold him in higher regard because he is ours and the places he writes about are mostly our own too.
