“The thing about a good fly fisher is that you need to think like a fish” – The Times

“An iridescent hook whizzed past my right cheek as it sailed a few metres over a small dam. Chased by startled gasps and a rapidly unfurling line once it hit the water, this fly’s sole purpose is to seduce one of the fish lurking below into taking a nibble.

However, a first big toe dipped into the enigmatic waters of fly fishing would teach me that a fish requires more than a colourful hook lobbed into the water.

As my instructor put it, “Think about fly fishing as war”, and the stakes are your life or a full stomach…”

Yolisa Mkele of The Times wrote a beautiful article of his a first try at fly fishing, at Kloofzicht Lodge. If you love a good read and a chuckle, read on by clicking this link!
