Fly Fishing Around The World, 39 Fish Species You Need To Catch On Fly! Alphonse Island/Alphonse Fishing Co, have made an amazing infographic, probably one of the best I have ever seen, the lists the 39 fish species you need to catch on fly! The infographic below shows all the 39 species of fish that can be caught world wide and these fish are all treasures and possibly once a life time catches… Here is a word from Alphonse Island: I am happy to announce that we were able to sum up all our results from the previous Research project into one big Infographic. We have called it the ‘39 Legendary Fish to Catch on a fly’. This project would not have been possible without you and other Fly Fishers from all over. Please have a look at our Infographic below: This is truly amazing work! Well done to the guys who have spent so much time and effort in putting this together!

Red Rock River

Red Rock River

Fly Fishing The Red Rock River In The USA September 8, 1992 Patty and I were up earlier (6.30 breakfast ) for the 1 1/2hrs ride to Red Rock a private stretch of spring creek water in which there are very large fish – saw photo’s last night of 2 8 lb fish being cradled by their captor. A brief word one of the other guests at Craig Fellins lodge: George McCullogh senior was a WW2 navy pilot operating from aircraft carriers and was shot down in the Pacific along with numerous other pilots. He was lucky and was rescued from the sea. The day after 22 pilots were beheaded by the Japanese. A really super old gentleman with a sharp wit. He and his wife Betty would like to visit RSA and have already done quite a lot of homework. The fishing at Red Rock proved very difficult. The stream (actually the upper reaches of the BEAVERHEAD before the river is dammed to become the Clark Dam) is exactly what I imagined a spring creek to be: heavily weeded, open patches of gravel over which fish lay in a couple of feet of water. Large fish in crystal clear water were holding in their feeding positions. The day was characterised by a lack of insects hatching which results in the need to fish nymphs in the normal upstream manner when this was possible. In cases when it was necessary to cast up and across it was critically important to maintain a tight line to the fly and this was achieved by retrieving line even to the extent that...
Ceres Valley Fly Fishing

Ceres Valley Fly Fishing

Ceres Valley Fly Fishing Ceres River Fly Fishing Part One Another beautiful river in magnificent surroundings on a wonderfully sunny November day. Jan van Huyssteen , Tony Biggs and I fished from about 09.00 to 13.00 and covered about 1 1/2 kms of river – freestone in character with more pocket water than the Olifants or Witte. Caught 5 rainbows up to 300gms on RAB (named after the creator … RA Biggs but it’s also known as Red-arsed bastard) dry flies. I was striking too hard today and broke off on 1 fish which was not that big. Once we finished fishing we had to tackle about 400 metres of “jungle” to reach the road – saw no snakes but we must have passed a few. Its important to take care in this kind of country. Tony Biggs led the way through the jungle. Ceres Valley Fly Fishing: Part Two Jan Van Huyssteen, Inga, Vicki and Pascala, Patty, Gareth and I drove to the farm “Visgat” (some 30 km the other side of Ceres on a gradually worsening dirt road) in Jan’s Kombi. The day’s fishing started by wading the river pool below the derelict cottage with water up to 4 feet deep – Gareth went across on my shoulders. I caught 1 fish in this pool before the mass wading took place. Once the picnic area had been arranged Jan and I climbed the rocks to fish about 50 to 100 metres down from the pool referred to above. This was mountaineering prior to fishing. The river was probably a foot higher than normal but despite the strong...
Emhlangeni Trout Fishing

Emhlangeni Trout Fishing

Emhlangeni Trout Fishing Emhlangeni Trout & Archery is a beautiful area situated in Mpumalanga, between Springs and Delmas, and just a few kilometers from the N12. Don’t get me wrong, when I say Mpumalanga, I mean literally on the border of Gauteng, and a short and easy 30 minute drive from Edenvale. Darryn and I departed early on Sunday morning for Emhlangeni Trout & Archery to do some winter fly fishing for the Rainbows that they have on offer. We left Edenvale at 5.30 am and got horribly lost. I managed to put the GPS co-ordinates in wrong (It was en early Sunday morning after all). After driving around Delmas for an hour, Darryn identified the problem, and after another 20 kilometers, we arrived. We were greeted by Pieter who opened the gate for us, parked the car and set up the rods. We did a brief scout of the area and found the water to be incredibly clear. The clarity of this water is unmatchable in the immediate area, and you can see all the fish, even in the deeper parts. Emhlangeni is known for it’s Bass fishing, they stock good size Largemouth Bass every September, and there is a healthy population all year round. In May, they stock Trout, and depending on availability, stock Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Golden Trout. Darryn and I started fishing an island, where Lapa 3 is situated. The fish were in full spawn and were chasing each other all around the place. We presented a selection of weighted orange wet flies to the fish, who were slightly interested in the morning,...
