GFF video/DVD review
A South African fly tying journeywith Ed Herbst and friends
Instructor, narrator, producer etc.: Ed Herbst & Andrew Ingram
Reviewed by Korrie Broos This first DVD, in a series, is a documentary journey of the history of fly fishing in South Africa, providing lovely insight to the first trout that was introduced to the streams of South Africa and the evolution of fly tying in South Africa.
As South Africa is far removed from mainstream fly fishing destinations, some unique patterns developed over the years. In this DVD, the origins of the flies, unique to South Africa are tracked, and where possible tied by the originators of these flies or by fly fishers that have fished with the inventers of the flies.
These Step-By-Step sequences of the fly tying, provides unique tying tips in general fly tying and advice on how to tie the South African flies. For the people who are interested in the spread of trout and fly fishing over the globe, a must have DVD for their collection.
The series will eventually focus on terrestrials, emergers, cdc patterns, nymphs and saltwater patterns.
Ed Herbst is a renowned South African fly fisher, fly fishing writer and originator of fly patterns.
