The ongoing pandemic has been detrimental on a worldwide level and continues to, sadly, run its course in 2021 thus far. It’s truly difficult to see the silver lining during such a tough period but at least there’s been some light at the end of the tunnel for both myself and Philip Geldart, both junior [...]
Fly fishing for trout and yellowfish in the Lesotho highlands in southern Africa The world is full of extraordinary fishes.
