    Default Hello

    Hey, some of you may be familiar with my postings on the Flyforum forum which has become a bit dead unfortunately as i really liked its format....

    I am a student at Rhodes University and enjoy fish, fishing and nature in general.
    Regarded as somewhat of a nutter by my fellow student flyfishers, mainly due to the fact that i don't buy Fly- tying materials at FF shops but rather use alternative materials and a bit of improvisation. I tie flies out of literally anything. They also can;t understand how I managed to lose all five huge trout that i consecutively hooked in Thrift.... I just say i have a superior catch and release technique!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tight lines!!!!

    Welcome Carl.

    You'll feel right at home here with this bunch of nutters.

    Welcome, boet.

    Similar story. Currently in Chad and tie to stay sane. Also keep my eyes peeled for anything suitable I can use. Found the wrappers of candy bars make a good plasticised foil substitute. Bird strikes at the airport aren't being wasted either....
