Softcover, 206 pages.
An epic adventure across the best fly-fishing and hunting to be found in Africa, South America, New Zealand, Australia and more. From trout to birds to big game, it's all here - stalking deep forest for elusive stags and wild boar; waterfowl and upland birds over gun dogs; encounters with plains game and the Big Five; to reflections on fly fishing for trout, tiger fish and dorado. Written with heart and style 'Wild South' captures perfectly a deep love of fly fishing, bird hunting, gun dogs and big game in some of the world's last great frontiers.
