Some will be aware of my passion for giant trevally and what started as an idea on Farquhar has gathered momentum into a full blown book. I have hunted across the globe for over 12 years now, and in that time I have learnt much from those I have been fortunate to fish with.
A Flyfisher’s Guide to Giant Trevally
Catching a giant trevally (or ‘GT’) on a fly rod is the pinnacle of flats fishing: highly challenging, requiring skill, preparation and courage. This is the first comprehensive guide to giant trevally fishing on the fly.
The giant trevally is an apex predator, and the way it operates is nothing less than brutal. These ‘gangsters of the flats’ are like packs of hoodlums marauding across the atolls and shallow estuaries. Hunting for trevally in the harsh environment they inhabit needs a certain resolve. The flyfisher’s first encounter with a giant trevally will be an electrifying experience. A GT can destroy tackle and ego, leaving all in its wake.
But once you’ve caught one, GT fly fishing is an experience that any angler will want to repeat.
