Video: Big Browns in a Little-Known Corner of Africa


Written by: Phil Monahan


How many of you can find the Kingdom of Lesotho on a map? (Or pronounce it correctly?) Here’s a very cool video showing the kind of fly fishing for brown trout that is available in the mountainous region of this tiny African nation. When he finally gets a hand on the tail of that fish, don’t be surprised if you gasp or blurt out, “Holy crap!” Look at the tail on that thing! (BTW, it’s pronounced li-SOO-too.)


Lesotho is landlocked, entirely surrounded by South Africa.

    HOLY CRAP!! Do they get lowered down there by rope?? I’m not sure I would have done that 30 years ago, let alone now.

    All very nice fish by the way…
