Catching a giant trevally (or ‘GT’) on a fly rod is the pinnacle of flats fishing: highly challenging, requiring skill and preparation. GT – A Fly Fisher’s Guide to Giant Trevally 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 flyfishing is an experience that any angler will want to repeat.
GT – A Fly Fisher’s Guide to Giant Trevally is an all-encompassing book that covers everything you might need to know about this species and trying to catch them on a fly rod. It is a combined effort by many who have a similar passion. The book is split into two sections, the first being a guide to the species, history, where to find them, tackle and techniques, flies, fighting and release. The second half is dedicated to the different destinations they are found including anecdotal stories written by a collection of the pioneers, guides and experts that know them best. The book is a 224 page jacketed hardback packed with stunning images throughout. The cost will be £30 +P&P and will be available in September. In addition there will be a numbered limited edition bound in blue leather in a marine blue slip case which will be £250 + P&P.
