About the book: 

Fishing Flies for Africa  is a comprehensive, detailed reference guide to the fishing flies for use in Africa. The author has poured over two decades of research and a lifetime of experience into this book, sharing a wealth of experience and unparalleled enthusiasm on the subject. Included in this title are over 800 flies of European, American, Australasian and local origin. The origin and developmental history of each fly is discussed, as well as its dressing, any variations, and the appropriate method for fishing with it. Additional design and tying notes are included, where applicable. Appropriate substitutes for rare or environmentally sensitive materials are listed, and the book has a serious focus on ecologically friendly fly-fishing, with an entire chapter dedicated to natural materials and their substitutions. The growing hobby of collecting flies also receives its own chapter, with useful advice on storage, framing and lighting options.
