South Africa’s fly fishing literature is surprisingly rich and diverse. It’s also a genre that has produced a host of quality works over almost 100 years. Up until now, though, the great library of South African fly fishing books – and authors – has never been properly examined and recorded. In at last setting this right, Paul Curtis has analysed and researched, and meticulously chronicled our fly fishing literary heritage, book by book, author by author, right from the very origins of the sport in South Africa. As such, this is not only an important historical record, it makes for a hugely enjoyable and informative read. A book, that should be prescribed reading for everyone who shares a passion for fly fishing and a passion for this country.
