We were saddened to learn that after a long tough fight, Jack Gartside lost his battle with lung cancer.
Jack Gartside was counted one the most innovative and prolifically inventive fly tyers of the modern era. He got his first fly tying lesson in 1956 . Ever since he's been tying and fishing, accumulating an extraordinary range of fishing experience in fresh and salt water. He was one of the first fly tyers profiled in Sports Illustrated magazine (Oct. 12, 1982). Jack's best-known original patterns include the Gurgler, Sparrow, Soft Hackle Streamer, and the Gartside Pheasant Hopper. His designs have been featured in Eric Leiser's Book of Fly Patterns, Judith Dunham's The Art of the Trout Fly, Lefty Kreh's Salt Water Fly Patterns, Dick Stewart's Salt Water Flies, and Dick Brown's Flyfishing for Bonefish.

It is not uncommon for Tarpon aficionados to ask this question over and over, once you have been gazed upon by the SILVER KING life will never be the same.
It is also not uncommon to wake during the wee hours , screaming , kicking and soaking wet ... half way into the fight. Your arms ,legs and fingers weak , shaking and cramping , .. for f... sakes you have been pulling on a fly rod connected to a SILVER train...........
I can see the look in Murray's eyes , there definitely is a glint of SILVER present.... and he is not the only one.
We will definitely be back next SEPTEMBER !

The only time you’ll want to put down this book
is to pick up a fly rod.
Shadows on the Stream Bed by Tom Sutcliffe
is a celebration of fly fishing by South Africa’s most celebrated flyfisherman. Yet you don’t have to be a flyfisher to enjoy the people and places he describes so lovingly.
Tom’s writing is sometimes deep, sometimes hurries along, is often lyrical and beautiful, always sparkling – a lot like the crystal streams of the high mountains of South Africa where the brown and rainbow trout thrive.
He has more than anyone in the history of South African flyfishing walked and waded every metre of these streams, kilometre after kilometre. Fishing each pool, run and riffle on those both well-known and unnamed – from the finest blue ribbons to those that have hardly the width or length of a piece of packing string.
This book continues his journey.
Tom Sutcliffe has written five previous books on fly fishing and fly tying including the best selling Hunting Trout and The Elements of Fly Tying. He has fly fished in every corner of South Africa and many places around the world.
