About us

"I ended my speech by making a selection - after first clearing it with Gordon - of the participant I thought had made the greatest contribution to freshwater fly fishing in South Africa over the last five years.  I gave it to Alan and Annabelle Hobson of the Angler & Antelope along with a modest tinted, pen and ink sketch of a leaping brown trout.  It was a popular choice judging from the accolades the announcement received, and they deserve it." Tom Sutcliffe, at the inaugural Fly Tying and Fly Fishing Expo held in Somerset West in 2016.
