    This is amazing Korrie. Wish I could attend, but seeing that there is no EC dates makes it impossible for me

    Anyone not going sure is going to miss out!! One thing though, who is Said Yahiaou?

    Said is French-Algerian (Algeria was a French colony) and is (was?) the French Team Captain for many years. He is very knowledgable and informative in his own right. Good English too and a genuinely nice guy.

    On Pascal - to reinforce what Korrie has said, given an opportunity to learn from Pascal *in South Africa* is something that should not be missed.
    As one of the best competitive flyfishers in the world, what can be learned from him in regards to technical fishing (dry fly, French nymphing) as well as leaders & approach is invaluable.

    I attended the Czech nymphing course with Jiri Klima and have already booked my place for this one.

    Korrie deserves BIG credit for pulling this off.

    yup, looking forward to it!

    AWESOME!!!! Spot booked! Well done Korrie!
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey
