Fly Fishing Articles by
Francois Botha

I remember sitting on the banks of the Zambezi River, starring at a photograph that Henry Gilbey took and I knew that I had to get into photography. A few years later and I am lugging 20 pounds of camera gear around flats and rivers of the world, trying to get that perfect shot. As a professional fly-fisherman, I consider it as part of my job to take a good photograph. These remote and pristine places around the world are disappearing at an alarming rate and simply taking a ‘grip and grin’ photograph of a client holding the fish of a lifetime is not enough. I think photographs that capture the fly-fishing experience and environment document a larger and more important audience than we might think.
