GT: A Flyfisher’s Guide to Giant Trevally
Catching a giant trevally (or “GT”) on a fly rod is the pinnacle of flats fishing: highly challenging, requiring skill and preparation. This 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.
- Very little information previously available on the subject of trevally fishing
- This is the first book devoted to the subject
- Practical advice on the techniques, GT behavior and locating, tackle, equipment and the world’s best locations for trevally
- Several thousand anglers from the US and Europe take part in GT fishing each year
Peter McLeod has worked in flyfishing travel for over 20 years and founded flyfishing specialists Aardvark McLeod International in 2005. He has visited over 60 fishing locations in 20 different countries, some of them as many as nine times. He has travelled widely in his quest to find the finest flyfishing experiences in the world. His fascination with the trevally species is bordering on the obsessive and he is constantly scouring the globe for that next mind-blowing hotspot to target these bulldogs of the flats.
