Malcolm Meintjes' easy style of writing will appeal to both the week-end and serious flyfisher. The "Companion" focuses on:
- flyfishing tips and techniques with specific emphasis on stillwater trout in Southern Africa
- the different trout and their idiosyncrasies
- an in-depth look at using tackle strategically
- conceptions and misconceptions about how trout react to flies
- an analysis of natural conditions that affect trout behaviour
- how to utilise conditions to advantage
- observation and reading of trout waters
Includes a guideline to what the trout may be feeding on, what those creatures look like and suggestions on what flies may be used in those instances.
There is also an aperitif section concerning other sought-after freshwater species that can be caught on fly including , tiger fish, yellowfish, tilapia, carp, catfish, black bass and a special invitee - the Nile perch.
Entertaining and informative. A real companion.
