Fly Talk was started with the vision to provide the general fly fishing public with hands on information, since we believe “Knowledge shared is Knowledge multiplied”. The Fly Talk Team, consisting of Philip Meyer, MC Coetzer and Pierre Laing bring you this very informative fly fishing website The cumulative involvement and interaction of all our members will lead to the growth of fly fishing, both in newcomers to the sport and the development of fly patterns and fishing techniques.
More Than Enough

So, it isn’t surprising that expectations over the past week were at an all season low, to say the least.
Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass - How to tell the difference
All fish species have different external characteristics that make them who and what they are. Many species of fish exibit remarkable variation in physical shape within a single species, like the smallmouth yellowfish, in which mouth shape varies considerably according to the fish`s individual food preferance and habitat.
