DIY Farquhar

Friend and accomplished fly fisherman Graeme Field of Liquid Horizon has put together a DIY trip to Farquhar next year April. I was hoping to go but can't get leave - I've already used up too much chasing fish :) The trip has been advertised for this week only and already half the slots have been taken. [...]

Pimping with the Guides

Guide's don't always live the dream - long, hots day watching other guys catching (or not catching) the fish. But when they get a day off, they tend to have it wired. This is Jako Lucas' short film documenting a day off with fellow FlyCastaway guides... [vimeo w=400&h=300]

Farquhar Intro – The arrival and warm up

It started with a call from Conrad Botes.  Then another call, then another.  Then Conrad called again.  I have 10 minutes to decide.  My internal dialogue reminded me of my move that I was in the middle of, the house transfer i was awaiting, and the severe work stress I was under, not to mention [...]

A Farqing Hard Week

Seems Pete and I got dealt similar cards. While just being able to throw a fly in a fishery such as Farquhar is a treat, the stars don't always align and you just have a tough week. The summing up of the week: A week of missed opportunities. Hosting the trip brought about its own new challenges that [...]

Just thought I'd make you all a little jealous... Kosi Bay. Pete will be chasing Giants up and down that beach... While I chase everything that waves its tail me on this atoll.... See you all in a week... :p
