Client Fly Fishing comments on Rhodes waters

September 2009 - Graham Whitty

Fred,
Everything about this trip has been special & fantastic .  Forever burned into memory!  I have learned so much, experienced the thrill of the best fish of my life & trekked through the awesome ravines & valleys of Lesotho. It has changed my outlook on fly fishing - this will be hard to beat!  I already am looking forward to planning the next one, & to spending time with you & the rivers again.  Thank you for the experience of a lifetime.

Fred leaves NothIng to chance - the catering was superb, the accommodation most comfortable and the fishing memorable.  Every detail of the trip was meticulously planned and thought through to ensure a trip from heaven.  Fred really is one of a kind - perhaps the last true outdoor's man.  This trip is a must!!!

Accommodation in the mountain village was a memorable experience.  People very friendly.  Fred was his usual efficient, organised self - and - better still, showed amazing patience over 3 glorious days of heaven.  We caught fish, and more fish, and even more fish!  (in spite of the serious wind!) Enjoyed walking in the magnificent mountain scenery, relaxed lazy fishing, and the pleasure of good company.  Thank you Fred.

The best fishing I have ever had!  Plenty of fish - up to 5 1/2 lbs.  And the longest fishing hikes ever.  Fred, thanks - it will be difficult to match this experience.

Three days of hard fishing.  Condition on the difficult ride but the experience was wonderful.  Such a pleasure to be guided by Fred on the first two days and Zulch on the third day.  I have been guided in many places in the world and have pleasure in reporting that the professional and friendly approach to the sport and the sharing of it was a great experience.  They can be rightly proud of a world class performance.  My second day with Fred on the Bell certainly ranked as my top fishing outing – thanks!

A great fishing and learning experience, Fred works you hard but makes sure the rewards are there.

A great day and a lot to learn!  Rainbows preferred a bead head zak nymph and yellows took sawfly larvae imitations.  Difference in strike behavior between the trout and yellowfish was a lesson in itself – I wouldn’t have hooked the one yellow if it wasn’t for Fred’s observations

Fishing the Sterkspruit above Moshesh’s Ford must be some of the most spectacular around.  Great scenery and big fish make this a truly holistic experience.  One very short day with a great guide – Fred thanks for the patience.  I should also add thanks for our Lesotho trip with you in April which was equally spectacular such that it will be an annual boy’s event.  Look forward to seeing you in 2009!  As they say in N.Z. – awesome!

Thanks so much Fred, Nick and I had a great day, your patience and vast knowledge of the river and fish was such a great pleasure to see.  You are a great guide and will always make use of your services.  Think about the French Pyrenees we’re def keen to go.
