Pulse Disc System by Brinefly
Pulse Disc from Brinefly Innovations
Adding a Pulse Disc to your fly will make the fly look like it’s swimming. Really
swimming. It makes the fly wiggle like a real baitfish. Order a pack and see how
each different size of Pulse Disc makes the different sizes of flies move through
Simply tie a non slip loop with the Pulse Disc between the knot and the fly and
your fly comes to life. It can also be used with duosnaps for toothy fish, and is
available in seven sizes for #6 - 5/0 hooks. It is available in packs of six, as
well as handy cost saving multi-packs of 24 units for #6 - 1/0 and #1/0 - 5/0 hooks.
The Pulse Disc works so well because it causes the same hydro-acoustical signature
put out by the bait fish. The side to side movement is the same as the bait fish,
and you can actually feel the pulsation in your hand.
The Pulse Disc has been tested by Bob Popovics, published author and guru in the
fly fishing industry, who encouraged the production of the Pulse Disc prototype.
See the video below.
During a recent visit to Lakenvlei I had a chance to test these. Firstly, you need to match the disc and fly sizes, or nothing happens, but when you get it right, the way the fly moves is incredibly lifelike. A baitfish pattern actually swims like a fish.
It makes a bit of a 'woer-woer' sound on the cast and as the retrieve gets closer to the rod you can feel the vibrations from the disc. It's a good feeling.
But do they help you catch more fish?
Hoping that the buzz frequency would have fish coming from the other side of the dam to find the fly, was a bit of a long shot, but then again, we all dream. but that didn't happen. Doing a trawl test, across the dam and back, with and without the disc, the score was one-all, but it wasn't the perfect test. Fish will definately lock onto this thing when they see it.
The application makes a lot more sense in saltwater with bigger flies, especially as you are fishing baitfish type patterns most of the time. I cannot wait to hit the Breede mouth with these things. If you see a guy with a hunched back and an odd hat, swinging his flies across a rip and cackling like a mad scientist; that will be me. Perhaps I should wear a lab coat.

dubbing loops, and you can use various types of hair and hackles. Produced of strong
clear plastic material, the locking surfaces have a slight roughness that allow
a perfect clamping of the fibers. Dubbing loop clips take the frustration out of
trying to tame materials and insert them into a dubbing loop. Works perfectly with
CdC, deer hair, smaller fiber dubbings, deer hair, synthetics or fibres. Two clips
in a pack, 49mm across.
Enlighten your vice, with a perfect travel tying light - cordless, lightweight and

Fishing Stories for Africa - Stories from the first ten
years of The Fishing and Hunting Journal
Edited by Edward Truter & Martin Rudman
Art by Craig Bertram Smith
Softcover 300 pages 2014
Long ago when the waters of the world were still young and the fishes that lived in them held a new fascination for men, a hunter-gatherer told the first fishing story. Although fishing for survival is dying out, the tradition of telling fishing stories lives on.
In this collection of forty stories, previously published in the first ten volumes of The Fishing & Hunting Journal, twenty-nine authors share their fishing dreams, adventures and accounts of life on the water. Set mostly in Africa, they cover everything from wild times with tarpon in tropical seas to introspective tales of trout in mountain trickles.
Whether you have a passion for marlin, mudfish, or mullet, deep down fishing is one language and these are some of its stories.
The 300 pages are filled with stories set to entertain anyone with an interest in fishes, fishing, or the outdoor lifestyle.
Also available in a
Deluxe signed and numbered hardcover edition

of a similar imported product Testing the Ark StreamX
some discussion with the guys at Ark, I convinced them to make me a prototype
floatation craft, something that is a cross between a float tube and a fishduc.
The prototype was tested at Lakenvlei against the criteria we had set. It had to
row, paddle with fins like a float tube, not wet your butt, easily carried, a
good amount of dry storage space, a minimum of three floatation chambers, not
get blown around in the wind, and you had to be able to stand in it and fish
without having to worry about it drifting away.
They certainly came up with the goods, with a product of better quality than
products available overseas at over R17000 without shipping & vat.
It qualified with flying colours, fulfilling all the criteria, as well as being
nice and comfortable to sit in and row. It rowed pretty quickly to the other
side of Lakenvlei, where I was able to stow the oars and then use it like a

Gin-Clear Media's PREDATOR (Drake Video Awards ’Best Movie’ 2012, as well as two other awards) is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed HATCH.
Fly fishermen have always lusted after big fish, those large predators that dominate the rivers, lakes and oceans in which they preside.
PREDATOR explores the globe for the largest and most powerful fish that can be taken with a fly rod.
These large predators employ all sorts of techniques to maximise their chance of catching prey. Some, like the queenfish,
use pure speed to outrun and crush their prey in the surface film. Pike lay in ambush, ready to explode on their prey in the chalkstreams of England.
Others, like the mighty barramundi of Australia's North, use brute power to get a feed.
Regardless of the species, a film about fishing for the world's greatest predators is guaranteed to be a visual extravaganza.
PREDATOR was produced by the Gin Clear Media team, who have produce other prize winning movies like The Source: New Zealand, and is narrated by Greg French.

TFO Half-weight 5ft 3 piece
A new Stream Rod is now available in the TFO Stable. TFO recently added the
lilliputian half weight rod their Finesse Series. This 5ft Ultralight 3 piece
fly rod with sliding band cork reel seat is perfect for small streams and/or
tight casting situations. At only 34grams it works wonderfully with #1 or #2
weight fly lines, with most people preferring the #2 The Finesse Series Half
Weight is engineered with the same materials and taper that facilitates such
accurate and delicate presentations that the TFO Finesse family is known for.
This featherweight little rod is guaranteed to make you smile. The Half Weight
features a cigar-style grip comprised of flor grade cork and is handsomely
finished with a burled cork butt. Two adjustable sliding rings enable varying
reel placements for finding the perfect balance.
"THERE ought to be a warning label on the the TFO 0.5wt Finesse rod. And not one of those silly California-led ones warning you not to eat a graphite fly rod as it causes cancer.
Nope this rod could seriously affect your standing in public eye, and perhaps your mental framework, at least as it pertains to fly fishing. Pick up one of these and you are going to be wearing a silly grin for a good while, the sort of grin that is going to make people think you have done something, if not illegal, certainly worthy of suspicious.
Buy one and you are going to be dreaming about ways to use it, probably against manufacturer’s recommendations. Yup you are going to be trying to figure out how big and bad a fish you can test it against.
A five-foot, half weight rod is designed for smallish flies on smallish water, tiny creeks: dry flies and small nymphs.
But seriously you are going to have strange urges, like using this to cast to big rising browns all summer, or perhaps a popper at a smallmouth or monster bream, or crazier like carp.
You probably shouldn’t come and cast this rod, its about as much fun as you can have with your waders on."
From the ozarkflyfisherjournal
"TFO tailored these rods for smooth, accurate and delicate presentations and they roll cast like a dream."

Thinkfish Flypad Flybox
Flyboxes with interchangeable leaves are nothing new, but now Thinkfish brings
us a truly modular flybox system, which certainly raises the bar on flyboxes and

clear lid that allows you to see the flies without opening the box. Its ergonomic design allows a thin container with a high storage capacity (17cm
x 8.5cm x 2cm).
Next are the interchangeable Flypad TRAYS, an innovative system for selecting
the set of flies and/or nymphs and/or streamers, appropriate to each fishing
scenario. You are able to choose trays with different interiors for different flies. Set
up you flies by type or by fishing scenario, and choose the trays you need for
You can then store your FLYPAD and TRAYS in the Flypad

flypads and 8 trays.
It can store and transport more than 1200 flies in a strong and compact 20cm x
