witte brownI found this image in the July 1981 issue of Piscator (July 1981)

It would highly unusual to see a fly fisherman in a speedo, rayban aviators, and takkies today.

Most of us are in wading boots, waders, and in fancy jackets with gadgets hanging from everywhere.

There appears to be a snake in his right hand,
but I cannot see the significance, unless it came from the trout's stomach

Henri Nel, you look fantastic.

What were you wearing on the river in the 80's?
My gear was an old army jacket with the sleeves cut off,
and a slot cut in the back to put my fish in.

Catch and kill has also gone out of fashion
