GT: A Flyfisher's Guide to Giant TrevallyGT: A Flyfisher's Guide to Giant Trevally
Peter McLeod
Hardcover: 224 pages 2016 : 7.5 x 1 x 9.8 inches
Catching a giant trevally (or 'GT') on a fly rod is the pinnacle of flats fishing: highly challenging, requiring skill and preparation. This is the first comprehensive guide to giant trevally fishing on the fly. The giant trevally is an apex predator, and the way it operates is nothing less than brutal.
These 'gangsters of the flats' are like packs of hoodlums marauding across the atolls and shallow estuaries. Hunting for trevally in the harsh environment they inhabit needs a certain resolve. The flyfisher's first encounter with a giant trevally will be an electrifying experience.
A GT can destroy tackle and ego, leaving all in its wake. But once you've caught one, GT flyfishing is an experience that any angler will want to repeat.

Peter McLeod has worked in flyfishing travel for over 20 years and founded flyfishing specialists Aardvark McLeod International, in 2005. He has visited over 60 fishing locations in 20 different countries, some of them as many as nine times.
He has travelled widely in his quest to find the finest flyfishing experiences in the world. His fascination with the trevally species is bordering on the obsessive and he is constantly scouring the globe for that next mind-blowing hotspot to target these bulldogs of the flats. Buy Online

into a raging seaInto a Raging Sea
Tony Weaver & Andrew Ingram
Paperback 2016
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the NSRI, here is a collection of daring rescues filled with drama and danger. From burning ships to shark attacks, sinking trawlers to hallucinating fishermen, these are the stories of man's constant battle with some of the most dangerous waters on earth.

But there is one story in particular that gave rise to the creation of the NSRI... On 12 April 1966, four fishing boats put out to sea from Stilbaai on South Africa's southern coast. Soon they were all pulling in fish as fast as they could bait their hooks, and the boats were settling lower in the water. Shortly before sunset, skipper Gerhard Dreyer saw clouds building on the horizon. But the fishing was too good and they ignored the signs. Later that night a gale force wind slammed into them. 'I told the men to throw everything overboard,' Gerhard remembers. An hour before midnight, Gerhard headed for deeper water to try and ride out the swells. As dawn broke, they saw for the first time the true extent of the night's damage: among the flotsam, one man in a lifebuoy. That man was the only crewman from the other three boats to survive the terrible storm. Seventeen men died that night.

Simonstown schoolteacher Patti Price was horrified when she read the news. She began a media campaign and appealed to the president of the Society of Master Mariners. As a direct result of her efforts, the South African Inshore Rescue Service was founded in August 1966 (renamed the National Sea Rescue Institute in 1967). Today, the NSRI has 35 rescue bases and over 1 000 volunteers. Buy Online
