Title: Fly-Fishing in Southern Africa
Description: (Cape Town: Struik Winchester, 1993) 0947430415. . 4to; original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; marbled endpapers; pp. 180; profusely illustrated with the Pickfords' golden images; illustrations of flies by Elsa Pooley. Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed, and partially sunned on lower panel; very small bump to top edge of upper board. Very good condition. (Curtis, 55) "This is the most lavish book so far undertaken or produced in South African fly fishing literature. In fact, very little has been published worldwide that comes even close to matching it. The photographs in the book, by husband and wife team Peter and Beverley Pickford, are breathtaking and must rank as some of the finest ever taken of our sport and of the countryside in which we pursue it. The text, written by well-known playwright, columnist and flyfisherman, Robert Brandon-Kirby, is on a par with the photographs: always interesting, often insightful and sometimes quite beautiful in its lyricism." - Paul Curtis, Fishing the Margins. A History and Complete Bibliography of Fly Fishing in South Africa.
