South African fly angler
Korrie Broos lives in Cape Town (the most beautiful city in the world according to himself).
He owns a furniture factory and when he is not busy with his company, he spends just about every free minute with something fishing related. He started fishing, from when he can just about start to remember, and living in Africa, gives him opportunities, to fish for "exotic species" unique to this continent.
Flyfishing made travelling a bigger lure, and fishing from Alaska in the North West to New Zealand South-eastern corner and Europe in the north to South Africa, and most of the places in between, the last axis left is the North Eastern corner of Asia and the Southern part of South America.
When fishing for trout, he is a self proclaimed nymphomaniac. With a preference to fish sub surface, in the various European nymphing styles.
He does part time guiding, to meet more friends (from all over the world) who share his passion and exchange ideas.
He has been a member of the South African fly fishing team to a couple of World Championships and Captain of the South African Commonwealth team 2010.
