Here's what three of the country's top flyfishermen have to say about it:

'What a great little book! I wish it had been around when I started fly fishing.' - Robert van Rensburg, captain of the South African national fly fishing team. Winner of the 2005 South African Nationals.

'Not before time - a beginner's book by two of South Africa's finest instructors and guides. Read and apply every word!' - Mark Yelland, fly fishing guru, owner of The Fly Shop in Bryanston and member of the South African national fly fishing team.

'If you only buy one book on fly fishing, buy this one!' - Jim Keaveney, well-known Dullstroom trout fishing expert. With 60 years experience of fly fishing in both Scotland and South Africa, he knows what he's talking about!

About the authors:

PAUL CURTIS has been fishing for most of his life. He was the first South African flyfisherman to gain R.E.F.F.I.S (UK) approval as an instructor and guide. He was a founder member of Dullstroom Flyfishers and he has pursued trout throughout South Africa as well as all around the world.

JONATHAN BOULTON is also a member of R.E.F.F.I.S and is one of South Africa's best-known flyfishermen and guides. He has a B.Sc. in Zoology and is the owner of Mavungana Fly Fishing in Dullstroom. During the northern summer he and his wife Sarah, who illustrated the book, run a salmon fishing lodge in Russia.
